Decent beer selection. Food menu is a little out there and doesn't necessarily compliment the beer selection. Decent place to grab a quick beer and move on though.

Main st Newark location..used to have best selection of beer in Newark..however others in area have upped the ante..still probably best draft selection on main st..however deer park is greatly improved..offer craft pitchers which is a plus and they do have some great prices on draft beers certain nights past 10 pm--occasionally get some craft gems..life and limb/limb and life a while back..food is off the beaten path but usually good with veggie/ vegan options for those so inclined..happy hour bar/food specials as well...

Six beers on tap (four of wich are rotating seasonals). Rotating bottle list of 12 to 15 beers (Dogfish, Souther Tier, Great Divide rotation). The atmosphere is very chill with a nice wait staff and very good bartenders. Not your usual menu but everything is very good (and there is a vegan option for most dishes. One of the best beer selections in Newark.

Was the place in Newark to go chill and have a good beer. While there wasnít a ton of beers on tap, there was always 4-5 that were high quality craft beers that couldnít be found at any other bar in the area. Had a very hippy feel, but was great for unwinding.

The wifey and I went there for dinner... Good beer selection for an average restarant. Ok, the food selection is a little different but still good, I had the gyro. I thought this was a "hippi place" but it was far from that. The beer selection is worth going for. Its no monks or stateline but for a restaurant in newark its pretty good. Honestly they have a better selection then Iron Hill which is across the street.

Decieded to check this place out after a trip to Iron Hill, but it was just way too far out in left field for me. Had a few decent brews on tap, looked like they rotate them somewhat but didnít really get a whole lot of info as I wasnít there too long. Place was too bright & too open, looked more like a Starbucks than a bar. Food did look good but I did not even look @ a menu. I wouldnít go back here, not w/ Iron Hill & another more standard bar right up the street.

This is a strange restaurant and I am not quite sure why everyone is so keen on it. It seems to be working off the hippy leftist vegan thing, and trying to be pricey and upscale at the same time. While I have nothing against leftist vegans, I fail to see how these two things can go together or why someone would want them to. As for the beer, itís unremarkable: they have a decent selection of stuff in bottles but not much on tap. The food is remarkably bland...it was fresh but not very interesting, and certainly not good enough to justify the prices. This place is expensive and the food is not outstanding nor are the portions particularly large. Service was ok, but somewhat slow. The atmosphere is nice but a bit strange...itís like itís trying to straddle the fence between a nice sit-down restaurant on one hand and a lively bar on the other hand, and it doesnít seem to do either particularly well. Itís a bit classy but a bit sterile at the same time. It has high ceilings and widely-spaced tables with few dividers...too much space but not much privacy. Do yourself a favor and find somewhere else to go. There is MUCH better food in Newark, for cheaper, if thatís what youíre after, and there are places with more selections of beer as well.

Nice food menu with plenty of non-standard offerings. Lots of vegan options (not that I care). Nice beer selection, nothing exceedingly rare but thereís plenty to satisfy a beer geek.
