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. I’ve 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 can’t 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.

This place is awesome. Absolutely the best bar in NYC. Lots of taps with a great selection, prices are always good, and the events are sweet. Plus, they make fantastically good food. The only problem is that it often gets quite crowded, although even then its never too tough to get a beer. Oh and they serve their beer way too freakin cold.

Nice little pub. I never expected to find decent ale pubs in New York, I am so happy they do. Rather dark place with windows looking onto Bleecker street. The selection was impressive and reminded me of good real ale pubs back home in the UK. The bar was fairly busy but plenty of tables to sit and sample a few ales. If I lived in NYC this is were you would find me. If only the rent was $30 dollars! (Bleecker Street, Simon and Garfunkel)

I havent visited all pubs in NYC, but so far, this is my favorite one. I visited several times, both daytime and evening, and just loved it. Great selection on tap and bottles. Lots of vintage stuff. Very classy place with an open fire and a long invitingbar. Food was great and rather cheap.

Went on a Tuesday night while in town. There was a decent crowd but while we were sipping on the first round a spot at the bar opened up. I was very pleased with the careful selection of drafts and bottles. Each choice seemed to have a purpose. I was especially impressed with the selection of vintage ales available...I don’t think I’ve ever seen an ’04 Thomas Hardy available at a bar. The food menu was not large but I had a very pleasant grilled cheese and tomato soup. I had a sense that the servers weren’t the most knowledgable but they at least knew the basics of what was on draft. If in the city this is another top pick.

There is a joke ancient Chinese proverb that goes something like, If man is sent to dog house, he can be found in cat house. In this case it is a big-cat house. And yes, that was a long way to go to make a joke about this place and the reason I went there.

Anyway, this is an excellent bar. The staff was very knowledgeable about beer and global politics. I have never had a conversation with a bar tender about the possibility of Castro being dead before. The bartender who was there only seemed to be happy if you were able to make a decision as she commented about how she hates when people ask, What should I have? Luckily, I am not one of those people. However, the customer base seems to be pretty friendly and the place had a real old English (not the malt liquor) feel. I will be getting in trouble to come back here soon.
