A real basement bar with a convoluted wooden bar and a few adjoining rooms. Nice atmosphere, cool blues music, 15 or so craft beer on tap. Prairie beers were available the time I visited and I loved the place. Did not check the food menu but they have beer food I believe. I agree that it is worth visiting periodically.

My new neighborhood hangout, best selection of beer in Midtown east. It has 4 and 5 dollar drafts of craft beer during happyhour. Beer events i was there for free allagash tasting and they had 8 allagash brews on tap and free food which was nice. there is an outside biergarten and is a block away from my apt. sweet

Nice bar that does 4x6oz flights for $12. Many good local breweries on tap and a very good website that shows what currently is on tap.

Always has something a little different and interesting. Had both Goose Island BCS and Elysian Omen here the other day. It can get hammered on a Thurs/Fri/Sat night. I live very close so I try and go at off peak hours and the bartenders are really nice and helpful.

I have been here twice when visiting the city and enjoyed both visits. I appreciate the focus on American and local beers on tap and that the website is updated to you can check the selection before you go. Seems to be very popular with the after work crowd so even during the week it has not been easy to find a table. Very good freindly service at the bar. A good bar menu but not a foodie destination. The sliders were very tasty. Definately worth a visit if you are in mid-town.

Very cool bar with great deals next my midtown hotel. Was very surprised and happy to find this. Had a nice Lagunitas Imperial Stout on Cask. Later a Brooklyn Cascade. Well done.

In my imagination, New York City is full of places like this. We walked in at some time after 1 AM on a Sunday night and the place was a chill basement with a friendly bartender, a good set of craft taps, empty but for a group of stylishly laid-back NYC girls with nothing better to do on a Sunday night. In my imagination, I lived just up the block from a place like this for a couple of years in my late 20’s. A shame that I missed that particular train.

Pleasant little bar in Midtown (East side). Knowledgeable and friendly bar tender. Dimly lit, younger crowd. Good beers on. Seemed pretty decent for the area (but I am an out of towner). Everything from a mild to Oak Aged Pumking. They do serve food, but I didn’t try any. Prices were decent. Sampling flight (4x6oz) available as well. Good stop.

Well lit and open feeling for what is not the largest space. Here during the after lunch time on a Tuesday, small crowd. A number of tvs, which when I came were showing the Little League World Series, Sportscenter, and CNN. Nice mix for the lunchtime crowd. Looked like 16 drafts (one was empty, I’d guess in preparation for their Southern Tier event the following night) on while I was here, ranging from the entry level stuff like Abita Turbodog and Lefthand Sawtooth to more interesting offerings like Southern Tier Pumking and Creme Brulee. There were a few harder to come by things, one-offs, generally from local brewers like Barrier, Chelsea, and Kelso. Overall a nice selection and mix of styles including a rauch, a few different stouts, some Belgian styles, and some lighter more accessible fare. Some of these are part of the lunch special (half a pint and a meal for $10). Happy hour seems to run a long time (11A-7P) and features specials on some of those more easily found beers. Credit card minimum is $20 which is good to know if you’re just swinging in for a single pint or so. Service was quick and friendly.
