This place is cool. It has been around since 1912 and it has that olde time charm. I wouldnít call it dark and dirty more like a comfortable old shoe. No smoking in the place now you can breath easy

This is my type of bar...dark,a little dingy, and reminds me of something that youíd see in a place like Philly or Chicago. Has over 100 beers, mostly bottled, listed on a blackboard above the bar with many fairly difficult to find elsewhere. Prices range from $3 on the domestics to $5-6 on the Belgians. Itís a comfortable place to drink and one that I would highly recommend if you want to have a night out with friends drinking some great beers. Itís a social place and not a club.
Food is on the short side...mostly cheese and sausage plates.
A great spot...

Iím amazed this place is still around as well. This one is a sentimental favorite. This is were I learned that there was more to beer than Bud, Miller and Strohís. Everything a college dive bar should be, well, execpt maybe having a college nearby...

How has this place escaped me. I love it. Nice little dirty hole in the wall with a better than typical beer selection. Good music and good atmosphere

I like this place. It is very dark and dirty, and around nothing else cool, in a shitty part of the city. My kind of place. Sure, many of the beers are not all that rare, but they have so many brews and they are all listed by style. Like ClarkVV said, if single malts are also your poison, they have a great selection as well. Good live bands, and a fun back porch in the summer. Darts as well. A good spot to hang out, espcially late night.
Rerate-Increased prices and decreased selection. Not good.

Nice dirty little place. Always cramped whether there are 5 or 25 people cause everyone crowds the bar. Decent variety but nothing too rare.

I canít believe this place is still around. I used to go here when I was a teen (not to date myself, but I started going ~20 years ago). Located in a crappy area with a nice bottle selection.

Very smoky and dark, quite bare and cramped. The beers are very over-priced and they donít have anything you canít find in stores around the area. The beers are served ice cold. However, the bartenders are friendly, and the beers are listed to style fairly well. The single malt menu is cool and the hard-tipped darts are fun. They certainly do have a lot of bottles, but they are mainstream beers from around the world. Tap selection is pretty poor. Worth a look though, the wall decor is quite interesting. So many good Michigan beers and they only have 2-3 average ones on tap.
