Visited May 26, 2014.

This is basically an Irish bar but itís got decent beer. During my visit they were doing a Dogfish Head event, or at least they had just finished one and there were still a lot of Dogfish beers on tap. That didnít excite me all that much. They also had some Founders and some more local beers but over all it wasnít an amazing tap list. That said, I did find something to enjoy. I also got a kick out of the Dogfish tap handle that is in sections that can be rotated to make different patterns, even if I didnít want to drink the beer coming from that tap.

It might be worth noting that they have a patio on upstairs that is nice. You can sit outside and eat/drink in a slightly nicer atmosphere than a dingy bar.

Nice double level bar with lots of seating area and decent for groups. Iíve been here during a Carton event which was great, so not sure how their day-to-day menu is on average. Wish this place was closer.

Right near my hotel so worked out well having this place close by. Nice small craft beer bar with massive USA focus on tap. About 15 taps to choose from. Great happy hour specials $4 pints. Service was great wasn't really waiting around for my beers as I get inpatient like that. Definitely pop in if in the neighborhood. Not many other options in midtown.

Popped in here for a quick drink with a friend when I was in the neighborhood. Sort of a dark hidey-hole type of vibe with a short bar fronting a cozy divey looking place. A very well-curated tap list and some nice happy hour specials as well. We didnít eat when we were here but quite enjoyed the pop in. Bartender was efficient - there arenít a ton of options in this neighborhood but this is a great one.

I have been here twice when visiting the city and enjoyed both visits. I appreciate the focus on American and local beers on tap and that the website is updated to you can check the selection before you go. Seems to be very popular with the after work crowd so even during the week it has not been easy to find a table. Very good freindly service at the bar. A good bar menu but not a foodie destination. The sliders were very tasty. Definately worth a visit if you are in mid-town.

Traditional British looking bar, with two quite cozy, smallish floors in wooden dťcor, as well as a nice patio upstairs. The place cannot compete in the big league when it comes to sheer amount, but the selection seems carefully selected and with a focus on local craft breweries. Also serves good food. Service is good, and the staff is knowledgeable and helpful.

Visited late afternoon on a Thursday. Cool split level room, with a bar 1/2 floor down, and another room upstairs. The lower bar had 14 or so beers on tap, with a decent variety of locals and other solid craft options. Good friendly service. I had a beer, and the sliders. Both were solid, and I enjoyed my visit. There is nothing special about this place (craft beer wise), though I enjoyed spending time here.

Always has something a little different and interesting. Had both Goose Island BCS and Elysian Omen here the other day. It can get hammered on a Thurs/Fri/Sat night. I live very close so I try and go at off peak hours and the bartenders are really nice and helpful.

Visited around mid day on the last Thursday of Feb í12. The place never got too busy but there were a few folks in for lunch. Service was attentive and friendly. Beer selection was solid enough with a few out of state/non east coast offerings available. I liked this place and would head back if in the area, although not a destination pub in its own right.
