Huge selection of Belgian brews as well as French and German ones. 6 taps. US selection not so impressive. Nice big patio. Very dark after sunset.

Cool place. Servers were knowledgeable ad very friendly. good election of beers, but I wasn’t interested in paying import prices for Belgian stuff, which narrows the choices. I think 10 taps would really make it stand out more, but still, a good place.

I decided to update the rating for this place since I really do think it’s slipped a lot. The prices have really gotten out of hand and the owners/bartenders have made a habit out of avoiding contact/service and anything that would involve them actually serving you. There is still a great selection of top notch bottles, but you’ll pay for them. There are a whole lot of spots I’d rather spend my time and money at. Too bad because this place really used to be the shit. Definitely one of the cooler beer bars I’ve been to. Long bar, six taps, smallish seating area that kind of reminds of Smokeless Joe’s. Loads of beer in bottles, well cared for and carefully selected. Prices seemed pretty fair to me (although I could drop a ton on all the Cantillon in here). Only thing served is beer or cheese... a winning combo in my opinion. Definitely the friendliest clientele I’ve ever met, lots of bottles were getting passed around the bar for both friends and complete strangers. Visited with beastiefan2k and dickinsonbeer and had a very good first night in NY.

Absolutely stunning Belgian bottle menu, about as drool-inducing as the HopLeaf’s in Chicago or Bruges’ Brugs’ Beertje. Superb homey feel, extremely attentive and hard-working barmen, what more can you ask for really? If I had a place like this in my city, I’d be a regular. Prices are pretty steep, especially if you get into the rare bottles, but if you choose well, you won’t be disappointed. Cheese and meat plate is pretty interesting. One of the world’s best, no doubt.

I visited this place for the first time on a Saturday afternoon. SD is a really trendy inside with a pleasant laid-back feel. The short extent of the draft list took me by surprise, but luckily the beers that were on were top-notch. The bottle selection contains a lot of high quality world-wide craft beers (including a decent Lambic list). Perhaps it’s because you can get a lot of the beers in Europe fairly readily, but to me a lot of the prices were unbelievably high. Overall, a great place to relax on Saturday afternoon and drink some premium beers (at a cost).

Reminds me of the old underground bars in Montreal, with their bric-a-brac decor,and of my parent’s chalet in the old days. A delightful place. The spices on the shelves behing the bar give it a very pleasant smell. There is a nice selection of cheese and meets (5$ portions, 3 for 12$).

Very cool place. Small inside but the back "patio" which is actually a killer yard is the way to go.

I was surprised at the size of the pub was given its reputation. It probably sits less than 50 people. We went there on a busy Friday night and ended-up sitting on the floor. Far from an art-deco place this is a very casual pub that feels like being in someone’s apartment. Cool patio in the back. Clientele (at least on a Friday night) is late-20s and seemed more like yuppies than beer geeks. Beer menu is all you’ve heard and then some. The bottle list is almost as impressive as what the best beer bars from oversee (Kulminator and friends) have to offer. No fillers, just great beers. The tap list was great too. Rather pricey but worth it. A must.

Very underwhelmed sadly. Hard to find without a sign. Hole in the wall place. Cozy/homely atmosphere. Not very crowded, with a strange collection of people. Only 6 taps of pretty standard stuff. Good bottle selection, but I generally don’t go to beer bars looking for bottles. Service and prices were both decent. Didn’t try the food. They had a beer engine, but nothing was pouring. To be honest, I’d be happier across the street at Fette Sau.

Homey and cozy inside - only six taps, but they are VERY well selected - the last time I was there, they put Dieu du Ciel Peche Mortel on one of the taps, and I, literally, heard a chorus of angels - the bottles are where the beer geek gets his rocks off - however, unless you’re willing to fork over 25 bucks or more for that rare 750 of something, you won’t be getting anything you can’t go to American Beer Dist. for - overall a great place, with a wonderful atmosphere and friendly staff, but, unless you have the scratch, you won’t be getting to taste the stuff that makes this place special.
