I used to frequent this place daily when I lived in the ícuse. If I miss anyplace on this planet it is the tusk. Great beer selection with a ton of rarities and the people working and sipping make it a visit in itself. canít wait to go back soon.

Got nothing to complain about this place. Great tap list, welcoming atmosphere, maybe a bit young, but not bad. Great location. Prices seemed decent. Good spot.

This place has the greatest selection that Iíve found in syracuse. Itís a charming place but can get a bit crowded depending on the day. This is probably my favorite bar in the Armory Square area if you want to drink something unique.

Many taps with many hard to find regional as well as international beers. A truly impressive selection. A world class beer bar. Very nice, classy wooden bar. Very knowledgeable and friendly servers. Did not try the food, but it did not look that impressive. In combo with dinosaur bbq, syracuse becomes a beer destination! Prices are reasonable and the more expensive draft beers are offered as 5oz glasses as well for about half the pint price. fyi -- visited here in the early afternoon, so I had no problems with noise or crowds.

Best Pub in the íCuse; itís in the heart of the "action" in downtown, and the food is very good. Bar tenders are knowledgeable or sexy, but not typically both. Nice lineup of taps and a must see if youíre in the area.

Dec 2004: At first I wasnít terribly impressed...the tap list doesnít have a lot of rarities or surprises, focusing fairly heavily on NY state stuff...and the ambiance seems sort of mall-ish to me. BUT the Middle Ages and Southern Tier stuff makes it worth a stop alone, the pints are very generous and cheap, and there are some nice private booths to the right of the bar. Definitely worth a stop.
Dec 2005: two more stops this year included the fine Middle Ages X, another Dragonslayer just as majestic as last yearsí, and a 9-year-old glass of Rogue Kriek! Plus a terrific prosciutto/parmesan sandwich and crab chowder...this place rocks!

Biggest beer selection in Syracuse - very popular place any night of the week. Very large non-rotating tap list as well as a constantly changing guest tap selection. Lots of Rogue, Middle Ages, Southern Tier, Brooklyn Brewery, and Saranac, usually something from Avery, a couple of Belgians, plus more. Pretty loud place with a nice outdoor area; age ranges from college-aged to middle-aged. Lots of staff on hand but you do need to get them to notice you at the bar. Beers are quite expensive, especially those with higher abvís, as expected. Unearthly is $10/pint, for instance, but you can always order a 12oz glass for half the price. Great place, good food as well.

I was pretty impressed by the amount of taps. I took a look around before heading to the bar for my first pint. Nice alcoves to have a quiet drink, fun atmosphere, good crowd covering all age groups. The large Beer label laminated signs hung above the windows were a nice touch, and the patio section looked inviting as well. No service at the tables, but it didnít take long to get noticed at the bar. Fairly long list of regular taps, the new arrivals were up on a chalkboard, but the best way to find out what was on is to walk around the bar and check out the taps. The bartender did give a few suggestions and didnít hesitate to hand out samples. They covered a wide variety of styles, plenty of selection to satisfy everyone. I started out with the Brooklyn abbey single and it was pretty good. They had two hand pumps from Middle Ages, the Wailing Wench on cask was fantastic. Pints were a dollar off during happy hour, and ranged from 4 bucks for my cask ale all the way to 8 or 9 dollars for the Brother Thelonius, we went for a half-pint on that one. Iíve seen cheaper, but Iíve seen worse. Not a stale pint in the bunch. We had a terrific time there, definitely a must visit.

So canít believe I have never rated this considering it was one of the first places in the US that got me into craft brews. Nice setup with a bar feel at the front and more quiet tables and private booths at the back. Have really stepped up their game in terms of selection the last couple of times Iíve been considering they had founders breakfast stout, Gandhi bot, and other tasty and fresh dipas plus more on tap. Food selection is good and weíll priced. Donít miss out on the chilli if that is up your alley. Kid and family friendly during the day. Prices are all over the map and donít always make sense but there seem to always be some deals and some head scratchers.
