Visited on a Friday evening back in December when they were holding a cask festival. Lots of loud music and posts and people standing around pool tables drinking lots and lots of good, cheap beer. Even without the festival, their tap list is impressive and cheap and good. Friendly busy staff had a tough time keeping everything in order but they managed well enough. Tried some chicken fingers which were spicy and tasty. Definitely a college bar type feel thatís grungy and dirty and fun to be around when everyoneís excited. There are a couple good bars in this location, itís definitely a good beer bar to visit.

Mr. Goodbar is solid. Mr. Goodbar is my home away from home. Yes, they have a trough in the mens room. Yes, it can be loud on Friday and Saturday nights.
This place is the real deal.
Bobby & the rest of the staff are great (just be sure to enunciate when it gets loud, lest you end up with something you didnít want) Beer club is a great event. Prices are ridiculously cheap, especially Friday nights. Casks on Fridays, Happy hour w. free food on Fridays.
DYCsoccer would call me a íhomerí for saying this but this, especially combined with Coleís next door, is one of the best beer destinations in the United States.

original rating: Always some solid taps here - bear republic, Lost Coast, southern tier, brooklyn and more. This place has no atmosphere, but if you want to play pool or darts with some friends and have a good beer while you do it this is the place to go. Avoid this place on Thurs, Fri and Saturday night as it is full of college kids rockiní the 50 cent natty ice deal. Staff is friendly, theyíll pour a nice sized sample without any thought of charging you. Next door to Coleís. All pints on Fridays are $2.50. Nice.

Well, itís a divvy bar, no question about that. But we talked with the bartender Bobby for a long time about beer. We got to try a wide variety of GREAT beers and he even through us a few samples. The wings were good too (but definitely donít get them until youíre done rating beer! They kill the taste buds with their deliciously hot sauce). If you like to try great beers, check this place out.

A nice little waypoint in the Elmwood district of Buffalo. At first glance, it looks like a townie/college bar, but the beer they had here was VERY good, and a lot of obscure stuff for beer geeks. There is a younger vibe, although the busy bar was not incredibly crowded. I would like to have seen it on a weeknight.

Spacious bar with plenty of room to walk around. Dimly lit. 30 solid taps. Good range of beer. One bartender really knew his stuff. Themed food and beer tasting on Wednsday upstairs and you can but tickets for in advance. Go to Coles on a Friday for a burger than to Goodbar for $2.50 pints, cannot go wrong.

Retardedly cheap. $3 for PINT of Rogue Imperial Pilsener! For american customers its a solid beer selection. For Canadian customers its an experience where you want to grab as much as you can before someone takes it away. Atmosphere is not as sunny as Coleís next door but gets the job done. Patio is nice enough. I will be back for sure!

Good selection of taps, which included the very rare Lost Coast Old Ale, the last time I was there. The crowd can really be hit or miss. If you go early or during the week and you will be good. Show up on a weekend night and the place will be packed drunken college kids, who arenít there for the beer selection.

Decent sized but the bar area gets cramped. Often too crowded and the bartenders take a while to get to you. The beer selection is better than most bars, and they do tastings and such. Parking is tough, and Iíve never tried the food. Prices arenít bad though!

Stopped in here before meeting Rudy and Tim on weeknight. There are around 30 taps of decent beer that cover a decent style spectrum. I had no trouble finding a few pints to rate. Plus, prices are cheap. Pretty much a dirty college bar type atmosphere, and lots of smokers. Music was too loud for conversation, and they donít take credit cards! WTF? Given that it is right next to Coles and they offer some beers you canít get at Coleís, itís worth stopping in....for the beer that is.

Very quick stop here revealed a nice tap list and a collegey vibe. Wish weíd had more time to get comfortable and partake of the draught list a little bit more.
