Reminds me of the old underground bars in Montreal, with their bric-a-brac decor,and of my parentís 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$).

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.

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 someoneís 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 youíve 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.

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 itís 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).

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 donít go to beer bars looking for bottles. Service and prices were both decent. Didnít try the food. They had a beer engine, but nothing was pouring. To be honest, Iíd be happier across the street at Fette Sau.

Stopped for Zwanze day this place was packed to the gills. Has that iconic beer bar vide. Old school with only siz taps but were all loaded for the event. Bottle list was insane due to the event as well. They have a cool outdoor area. Service was outstanding especially given the size of the crowd.

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 youíre willing to fork over 25 bucks or more for that rare 750 of something, you wonít be getting anything you canít go to American Beer Dist. for - overall a great place, with a wonderful atmosphere and friendly staff, but, unless you have the scratch, you wonít be getting to taste the stuff that makes this place special.

This place is small, but they put in WORK and there is dope beer on their limited taps. Tiny place with a really bizarre decor, but it works for a trendy local bar. The large poster of an embryoís development as you walk in really caught me off guard.

Was expecting more. Still agreat place by all means. i guess expectations were set too high. Love the fact that there is no sign out front. Cozy, lots of really rare bottle but just not really impressed with the draft options on this night. Wonderfull selection of 750’s JP, Mikkeller, Captain Lawrence etc. Back patio seems like it would be great in warmer weather. Really unique juke box to boot

We stopped in on a Saturday afternoon after gorging ourselves across the street at Fette Sau. We actually walked right past it on our way to Fette Sau and wouldnít have recognized the entrance if I hadnít looked it up in advance of coming. The bar itself has a vaguely European cafe feel to it, long skinny bar area, it is the kind of place that has a bicycle hanging from the wall and custom wood tap handles. Itís apparently also the type of place that kind of smirks when you ask if they have coffee or caffeinated beverages. The tap list was decent with a couple of solid choices and a decent range of styles. Bottle list had more rarities but most seemed less appealing when I discovered that they were not in fact 750ml bottles as I had assumed from the prices, but were in fact 375! Still, some definitely worth a splurge depending what you were into. The best feature of the place in my opinion was the large sunny back patio. It was the perfect day for it for us, with plenty of sun but not too hot. We visited with puzzl, Pearl and dickinsonbeer and it was a great spot to relax and hang out with friends. Itís a nice bar, and the sort of sleepy afternoon feel was nice compared to busier spots we went to on this trip but as others have noted the prices can be steep even for NYC. All that said, I had a great time and I would come back and itís well worth a visit, but I suspect that its overall ranking in NYC is partly based on high historical ratings.
