Well they seem to be phasing out the stuff brewed for them, though I think they had the custom brewcrafter produced Amber, the bartender said they donít get the stout any more. This was a disappointment. They did have a Brooklyn Chocolate stout when I was there. Overall a fairly small collection with some decent stuff, but not anything to exotic. For instance they had some Ithaca products.
The bar has the feel of a neighborhood place, everyone seems to know everyone and is friendly and the bartender is friendly.
The food is outstanding, cajun, and barbeque.

Been plenty of times. I love the look and vibe of the place. They got rid of the bandstand space in the front dinning room which helps the overall appeal. Bands now play in the bar. Service runs from slow to good, but for the most part the slower pace seems to work for them overall. Iíve only ever ordered draft beer here so Iím not sure about the bottle selection, but Iíve always been able to find something excellent on draft. Iíve pretty much eaten here about 90% of the time Iíve been. Surprisingly some of the food can be a little bland, even with their Cajun / BBQ menu, but itís always tasted fresh. Theyíve turned into a stabilizing mainstay in the neighborhood and I for one am very glad for their presence.

Food is typical BBQ stuff. I had ribs, potatoes and greens, which werenít bad. They have two beers brewed exclusively for the bar, of which the amber is not that good and the stout is pretty good. Maybe about 10 other beers on tap including 90 minute. The best part about this place is the live blues there every once in awhile.

Rougher part of town? South Avenue and Gregory Street? Disregard the last post. Some of the best cajun and BBQ you will get in New York State. Custom Brewcrafters brews an ale and a stout for Beale Street exclusively. Great music on the weekends.

This place is in a rougher part of town. I happened to be in the area so dropped in, but wouldnít prefer to come within miles of this area. A tougher looking bartenderess, a small bar. A couple of ables outside. I saw about 8 taps, with the same names of previous reviews of others from months ago. Nothing I have not had in the last few months.I suppose if you live in the area, this is the best place to go for beer, particulaly with the local McGreggor being closed. Overall a smaller than average bar.

They sell macros, micros from Bear Republic and lost coast as well as their house beers that are produce by Custom Brewcrafters. Good food at reasonable prices and good service.
