This place is pretty good in my mind. It is quite large, and the two times I have been there, there was plenty of space to sit. If this bar was in another city, it would almost certainly be filled to the brim (Iím looking at your DC and your crowded bars). The beer selection is quite good, focused mostly on US craft beer, but having some Belgian, Swiss, and Dutch beers. I didnít look at the bottle list (but really, buying bombers in a bar is pretty pointless, unless the bomber is proper rare). The service was friendly, but the bartenders seemed to not come to our table nearly enough to top off our beers. The food is quite good, and I would argue that it is actually a pretty good value. Worth a stop. A Ratebeerian would certainly find something that he or she has not yet had (I know for a fact because one of the beers there had 0 ratings on RB).

A very solid bar in a pretty convenient part of Queens. Nice draft selection that highlights a good number of local breweries. Typical NYC prices (so a little high) but they do have a great happy hour special on select drafts, which can be very good. The food is quite tasty and good value. Efficient and friendly service. The sports bar vibe in here can be a little grating. But other than that this is a really good spot. Worth checking out if you are in the area.

Visited May 30, 2014.

Years ago I was able to visit the other location in Baltimore so it made sense to stop here too. This was the fourth stop of the evening, after the three breweries in Long Island City. Itís about half way between Rockaway and Transmitter. Nice place all around. Kind of dark but the service was friendly, there was music playing, and they gave some free tasters of things, so all around Iíd say it was a good stop. Thatís not to mention the fact that theyíve got a lot of locals on tap that might be new to you. This was also my first taste of some of the newer breweries around like Single Cut (even though that was the next stop on the itinerary) and Other Half. I donít know if Iíll be back in the immediate area again but if I do find myself there Iíll most likely stop in here.

Ambiance: Decent Place, has some nice wooden tables, bar area seats about a dozen people with plenty of other tables too Service: Decent, Staff Knowledgeable and Efficient Selection: A decent selection which includes lots of local selections in it too. Food: Decent, burger was pretty solid along with the irish nachos Value: Food was decent priced for the area, drafts were okay but bottle prices were outrageous, paid 38 dollars for a 10 bomber.

Good space, and obviously good for the neighborhood. Great selection with regular brewery tap takeover events so lots of rare stuff showing up, decent value on happy hour. Roof deck couild be better if there was a view.

Pretty large space in LIC off the beaten path. Solid draft and bottle list. Prices are a bit high, especially for the bottles. Food was really good. Would definitely come back, especially for events.

This appears to be a recent addition to Patrick Donagherís growing empire of beer halls. It is conveniently located near the subway station a couple of stops from midtown Manhattan, so donít be afraid to visit. An attractive, two-storeyed affair, with room to relax and watch a game, shoot some pool, or chat with friends. There is a fully functioning kitchen with some tasty choices, but the dish I had - a banh mi pizza - was pretty bizarre, a messy mix of sour and salty pastes arranged on a flatbread. The beer menu was very good, with several very interesting selections, and the servers were without question friendly and helpful. I was there for the Stone Vertical Epic event, which did not appear to be a roaring success, but I certainly plan to come by again for the pleasant atmosphere and very fine brews.
