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 werenít 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 Iíd probably stop in regularly to try a bottle of something but I canít see myself eating here all the time given the prices.

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.

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 theyíve 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.

This is a beautiful place for sure and has lots going for it. The beers are quite decent but damned are they expensive! 16$ for 6 X 4 ounces...come on guys! But what drove me really mad was the waitress. She knew next to nothing about beer. She brought me the beers without any identification, just a statement of which order to drink them (from light to dark)...eh, which one is which, lady? Oh, there in the same order as on the board! The Belgian Strong tasted like the nut brown, the trippel like the wit...come on, identify the beers. Dont let me try to figure it out myself! Food was very good (goat ragu sauce with homemade pasta) but again, it was pricy 23$ and not that generous.

Visited shortly after it opened on Saturday January 28, 2012. Cosy and nice place. Tried a sample version of their draught beers, then shared the bottles available with my mate. All beers were from fair to nice, well balanced and well made. Asked if we could see the brewery equipment before the rush hour started, and was treated to this by our very nice and knowledgable bartender. Did not eat, but seemed to be a very popular place for both food and beer among the locals, I liked this place a lot and will return next time I visit NYC!

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 Iím 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.]

One of only two brewpubs in Manhattan, the rest are brewed elsewhere. A nice little place tucked away in the Greenwich Village area. The place is small and very nice. Not your typical brewpub fare either. The food is Gourmet level. The staff is very attentive to your needs. Service is very good. They have beer samplers as well. A fine and different place and a must stop for beer lovers.

Came in here on a Sunday morning three minutes past 11 when they had just opened. There was no one but me in the place for a little while, which was nice. Servers were very friendly and happy to talk about beer or any other things. As my time here went on then ended up getting fairly slammed with a number of walk in brunch customers and a monstrous reservation of 20+ came in, yet the bartender was still great, and I never felt ignored. Nicely done. Didnít get food here, but the menu did look good, albeit slightly pricier than I wanted for easy snacking foods. The beers were not amazing, but there is a nice variety of styles, and a couple of things were rather good. There are maybe six of their beers on tap, and then another six that they have in bottles. Went with the two sour bottles and then a sampler of everything on tap. If Iím in the area Iíll probably stop in again.

We swung by here fairly early on a Friday evening for a few post dinner drinks. The bar has a nice modern restaurant style look to it. A fairly small, NYC sized place with a nice sized bar and maybe a dozen or so tables. The bartender and the staff were all rather friendly, as the place was less then crowded, and the food looked quite interesting, though we didnít try anything as we had just eaten. The beer menu was well laid out, with a bottle list and draft list, each of which nicely described the beers. Overall, I was pretty impressed, the beers they served were all fairly interesting, and felt hand crafted. I didnít try them all, but they had 6 drafts and maybe 7 or 8 bottles to choose from, in a wide range of style (everything from a California Common or a Cream to a Smoked or a Gueuze). It isnít in the most convenient location, but I will definitely be back. Iím surprised that the ratings seem so low, but maybe I caught them on a good day.

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 donít 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.
