Visited May 29, 2014.
This place has a surprisingly large tap list of maybe 40 or so that is fairly heavy on the locals. When I was there they had Ommegang, Brooklyn, Sixpoint, Singlecut, Captain Lawrence, and Ithaca. They also had Founders, Victory, Stone, Crooked Stave, Firestone, and Smuttynose. Aside from Barrier most of those are not exactly small breweries but there were a couple of good choices. Didnít spend a lot of time here, just enough for a quick beer and on to the next place in the pub crawl. Service was friendly enough and let me try the Barrier Money IPA.

Great spot to do some sampling. Draft list is robust (30 taps) and has good turnover. All beers available in 3oz tasters. Never too crowded, even on Fri/Sat nights. Barstaff never seems irritated to sere flights and generally know their stuff. Beer list kept up to date on beermenus. Pricing is average for Manhattan. I have not tried the food. Ample seating without feeling impersonal; can accommodate a group. Much easier to navigate than other beer mecas (Pony, Blind Tiger, Rattle, etcetera).

Gathered a group of folks here for my wifeís birthday. 15 people in all and we found a table on a Friday night will little issue. Fairly large spot, two bars with plenty of space. Table service was a bit slow even when the place wasnít busy. Not much in the way of ambiance either. Food seemed pubby. Selection was very nice though. Plenty of items I hadnít seen before. Decent enough pricing.

New Yorkís best-kept craft beer secret. Lots of New York beer on tap, and lots of other good stuff too. Good mix of styles. Good food. Reasonably priced. Unlike at, say, Rattle & Hum, you can carry on a conversation here. I have zero idea how this place manages to fly under the radar.

This is my wifeís and my favorite bar in all of NYC. Itís a craft beer haven, with a good lineup of events, and 10 permanent / 30 rotating taps. The bartenders know their beer and are happy to talk to you about them even when itís busy. Itís got uptown class with a hole-in-the-wall feel.
