It definitely takes a certain personality and mindset to enter this establishment, but if you fit the bill, itís well worth it. This place is the picture of tacky dive bar, but itís warm and welcoming instead of dark and depressing. During Christmas season the walls and ceilings were covered, almost haphazardly, with cheesy decorations, but in a goody and charming sort of way. Theyíve got an average tap selection (dozen taps mixed macro and craft), and with rotating $5 pint specials, itís not a bad deal. The atmosphere and beer selection is a welcome reprieve from the "bro" vortex that this block of the city always threatens to fall into. Itís tough to say how knowledgeable the bartenders were, but they were definitely enthusiastic, high energy, entertaining, and could at least give an idea as to the taste of a given beer. I wouldnít necessarily say itís a destination for beer, but if youíre caught in this area ...
