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.

Slightly drab looking place, not to cozy. Average service that varies from poor to very good. Solid selection of draft beer at great prices. Good place to visit if you are on Elmwood. Much improved recently.

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.

A fairly basic bar, no present heat on a colder day, and a very good set of taps. Pales in comparison to its next door neighbour, Coles, but still has a variety of good taps from across the globe. Known as a college hangout, with lots of tables and pretty dark inside. Suggests to get your pint or two and move on, not hang out. The area itself is a relatively decent band convenient part of Buffalo. Only one server, but he hustled to serve a fairly good sized Sunday aft football crowd.At least two dozen taps on, Cask only on Fridays.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

As Tim and Rudy have mentioned, this is a very convenient spot since itís right next door to Coleís which is a canít miss spot in Buffalo IMO. Though there is some overlap at Goodbar there are some exclusive taps that canít be found at Coleís such as the Kulmbacher Eisbock and Schwarzbier. I didnít try the food. Iíll likely come back here just to see if they have anything interesting on tap...and Iím sure they will. The main area is a large room with pool tables and such, kind of strange that it was very empty on a Saturday night at around 21:00-22:00?
