What I had: Petrus Aged Pale, Dieu du Ciel! & The Alchemist Moralité, and Thiriez & Jester King La Petite Princesse in bottle, Beau’s & Kissmeyer Nordic Pale Ale on tap, some white wines for the lady.
What I liked: Solid beer selection with a few rarities in bottles, owner was very hospitable to us, decent prices, proper glassware.
What I disliked: Too-cool-for-school crowd is not my scene, no food or table service from what I remember, limited seating, a dive bar for punk rockers and hipsters.
Would I go back? For the hard-to-find gems that they occasionally get (like the Stillwater Classique cans that just came in), yes.

Love this freaking place. Hard to find, it's kind of tucked back and out of the way in Kensington. Was turned onto this place from a travel writer friend of mine, and it just so happened I was staying in the hostel right around the corner. Awesome!

Katie the owner is very friendly and extremely passionate about what she does. She has a small place that fits about 30 people, but keeps a great craft selection. 8 to 10 taps that rotate, along with 50 or so bottles. She's got some really nice Canadian beers that I can't get in the states, so I ate that up.

It's a dimly lit, neighborhood bar. They don't take CC, it's cash only, but they do have an ATM. It's a great late night watering hole, with great personality and personalities hanging around. Worth a stop while visiting Kensington.
