Visited March 2013. At Sunday daytime it is full packed! There was barrel-aged beer festival going on when I visited. 16 taps, 1 cask (Southern Tier 2xIPA). Lots of good bottles. Sports on TV. Nice ambiance. Quality place and afaik the only decent place around.

Great and constantly changing selection with a couple of staples, such as Weihenstephaner. Great atmosphere - very laid back and casual. Never have to deal with DJs and obnoxious bad music as there is a jukebox and they donít blare the music. Excellent food and very pleasant servers. This place is amazing!
They will engrave your name on the wall if you have 100 different beers there within a year.

Great selection and variety with a staff of beautiful and knowledgeable bartenders. Location is a pain in the ass to get to though if youíre driving; almost no parking and the area is sketchy at best.

Great place, but the beer selection has turned a littler more pedestrian. When they first opened it was pretty amazing for this part of the Bronx. Iím assuming that they had to come a little more down to earth with the selection due to the location. Not to say Iím not pleased to have them near by.
The food is bar food but on the higher end and very good. The Sunday brunch is tasty and Jason the bartender is on top of things.
My only complaints are that the music is loud at night so donít plan on having a conversation and on a weekend night they blast hiphop, but thatís just not my thing.
If you want to go there to simply sample beer and have a conversation about it, go on weekend days. Also some of the bartenders arenít up to par on their beer knowledge.
Brunch really rocks.
