Not a place you might immediately think of as a beer haven as it has avant-guard gigs most nights covering jazz, poetry, noise, drone etc. However they have got a pretty sweet selection of bottles with a heavy emphasis on the Belgium: Orval, Rochfort 10, Brugse Zot brown and blond, Westmalle dubel and trippel, Saison 1900 and others. Also Kernel options (porter, pale ale, IPA) and 3 or 4 from Howling Hops down the road (saison, smoked porter etc). Vibeswise itís brilliant - a relaxed a shabby kind of place with mismatched furniture and a friendly crowd. Some nights when they donít have gigs itís just open as a bar. Food is middle eastern and looks good. Check it out!
