Good place. Had a flight of 6 of their beers for $16. All pretty decent. Bartender was very friendly and helpful. Would go back.

A decent brewpub. The beers overall were slightly above average; but nothing really impressed me. Prices are a bit high, even by NYC standards. On my visit they had beers on keg and in bottle. I didn’t eat during my visit. As others have noted, this is a fairly ’upscale’ brewpub. If I lived in NYC I would probably come by now and then to try new beers, but if you’re visiting the city for only a few days there are other places worth hitting up before this one.

2014-04-20. The restaurant has a diner meets fancy restaurant vibe to it, the diner part largely due to the way the bar fits into the space. It was pretty quiet when we were there so we had the pick of the seats and opted for a nice table by the window. We had a sampler flight of their beers and a delicious lunch that in hindsight was more food than we really needed. We probably could have shared my 10oz burger rather than Karen getting a Mac and Cheese as well. The green salad had a simple creamy vinaigrette dressing that was pretty awesome. Server was friendly and prompt and queried us about our beer crawl after seeing my map printouts and had some suggestions. The house beers ranged from dull to pretty good and we might have had more but were anticipating more down the road so we just had the sampler. A nice place and worth a stop if you are in the neighbourhood and hungry, but I’m not sure if the beer alone would bring me back frequently. [Looking at the ratings for their other beers after the fact I suspect we missed out on their best stuff, which is too bad.]

This is a nice friendly place. Food very tasty. Smallish but interesting selection of their own beer. Would definitely go back when in the area.

Nice little brewpub in the west village. The beers are very good...not great mind you...but very good. This place is certainly worth a stop if in the area or if doing a craft beer tour. The food on the other hand is great. I realize some people say this place is expensive...but I would suggest they are measuring this more against other brewpubs or craft beers bars in the city than against a pretty upscale restaurant in the west village that also makes its own beer (meaning this place stands on its own as a restaurant even if you don’t care much for beer). The atmosphere is very nice...and the desgin of the place very attractive. If you are concerned about price...just come for the beer...or come for lunch if you are eating too.

Nice brewpub and restaurant with some excellent beers of their own on tap. Food is a bit fancy/expensive. Not your typical brewpub fare. Atmosphere is more of a wine bar than a beer bar but the beer is excellent so drink away.

Popped in here for a quick lunch and to sample the lineup. I had been into the spot when the previous chef/brewer was operating the brewer but before they were actually selling stuff. This was my first time in since they’ve been legit though. The beer lineup was pretty impressive - six widely ranging styles, all of which were solid in quality. A good looking place with good looking staff. The people working the bar knew the product as well, which is always nice to see. Had a sandwich and a salad and both were very tasty. Not a lot of complaints about the place.

Visited May 2012.

I looked at the website and then at the listing here and was excited by how many different beers they had and the fact that there were some pretty interesting styles represented. Then I arrived and saw the prices. Holy crap. Unfortunately the beers weren’t that great but besides that the place was pretty cool. Very hip, fairly upscale, and despite all that the servers were nice. If I was local I’d probably stop in regularly to try a bottle of something but I can’t see myself eating here all the time given the prices.

More of a restaurant than a bar, and fairly upscale. The new brewer is trying some interesting new beers and it’s a truly micro system so they’ll be turning over very quickly. Stop by for dinner and a few beers for sure.

Visited for a later lunch on a Tuesday. Nice, narrow space with 12 tables or so to the left and back, and 12 seats at the bar on the right. Evidently they brew in the basement. I liked the vibe of this place, it was very calm and friendly. The service was really engaging, and we had a fun conversation between the few of us at the bar, and the two folks working the place. I had mussels and Brussels sprouts, the mussels were good, the sprouts were great. I also had two of the beers that were solid, clean beers. I enjoyed the visit, and will likely stop by again when I have SoHo meetings.

76 = ★★★ (Worth the visit, must for locals, and visitors with time)

I only use the total score, not the component parts.
