Visited this place right after a Smuttynose tasting. Many rare offerings from this brewery. Nice old style bar. Staff was knowledgeable for the most part. Donít try them all and try to make it back to Brooklyn on the subway!

A long time favorite in the Village. Seems to have really taken off in their new location, as finding a spot can be a real headache after about 5. Arrive early and have a chat with Alan, heís a great guy. Wednesdays are often enhanced by the addition fo some rare beers by a guest brewer. Great beers, good food, nice people, and right across the street from Johnís Pizza, whatís not to like?

Great atmosphere - lots of wood, old tables, great view of the foot traffic on Bleecker. Lots of good taps, a few nice casks (when I was there they had Green Flash & Storm King). We were there earlier in the day and had no problems with overcrowding. The selection for the Vermont beer tasting which happened to coencide with my visit was a great treat.

Gets obnoxiously busy, but man are their beers well priced for being where it is. Visited there twice last summer and enjoyed some of their over priced bottles...including a 5 year vertical of heavyweight old salty and two bottles of cuvee de castleton

Great beer selection. Reminded me a lot of Toronado in San Francisco. A little too loud and crowded for my taste, though.

This is my favorite beer bar of the moment in NYC. The selection always delivers, just as good if not better than Hop Devil, but the service is way better and the overall feel of the bar is much more comforting. The food is also pretty damn good. Iíve only had a few samplings but I loved all of them. 2 thumbs up!

Very good list of taps and good vintage bottles (e.g. Struise Pannepot). Really good food and event list as well. Nice spot in the West Village. The main cons are that it can get extremely busy/crowded (small place) and that the events start so early (4pm) on weekdays. Then again, otherwise, they would get crazy busy, so I guess you canít have it both ways. Overall, great.

I travelled across town to this place based on all the recommendations. First, we were met with a big goon up front acting as doorman. I guess that is the price to pay in the West Village. Upon entering, we were immediately beset by a too big crowd. It was very hard to get the bartenders attention, let alone ask anything about any beer. Getting jostled about by people after we got our beers made me spill half mine. I was not happy about that. Selection was pretty good, and they did have two casks going, but nothing really mind blowing. Overall, its just way too small and crowded for me.

Excellent rotating draft and bottle collection here, and some good food to go with it.I caught it recently for an early afternoon lunch and it was quiet, but it can get packed, as the space is small to medium sized. Regardless of size, this is a great place for beer and food.I have been back three times since I first rated, and saw it very packed, yet getting a beer was not a problem. The owner is very cool and obviously loves beer. This might be my favorite beer bar in NY, and definitely one of the best. If you can, get there early.
