Great basement bar that had a wide selection of good beer long before everyone else caught on. Good food available from restaurant upstairs.

This place looks like a dive bar from the outside and is very easy to miss. I walked in during Quiz Night when the place was relatively busy and was still able to find a seat at the bar.
The selection was very good for the area with prices slightly cheaper than down the street at Z Bar. My one complaint might be that the service was a little slow. Because I had some time constraints I was only able to stick around for two pints. I would definitely return here if I am ever in State College again though.

Used to be a regular here, spending up to $100/night not counting tips, but after being told to basically piss off after having 2 beers in 2 hours waiting for a friend to show up they have lost a customer forever.

Ambience is cozy and casual. I didnít try the food but the beer selection is OUSTANDING. The service was good, with a bartender who was knowledgeable and helpful.

This place rocks I spent a lot of time here while I was in college. Itís totally a dive bar. Itís actaully kinda funny because on the top of this building is a very upscale eatery and then one floor below that is a dinnerish type place and then the underground is this bar. Itís great the tap selections is decent, but the bottle selection is amazing. This is were I first got acclimated with the craft beer world right here.

Itís an old cozy dive bar with bar tenders that know and care about thir beer. When I first went there in the 80ís if you asked for a light beer they gave you a glass of water. If you are a beer geek and canít get to a good selection or the craft brewers this place will rock your world. Go early or on a week day avoid game day in football season unless you get there early. Excellent bottle selection. West Coast, East Coast and imports. Just ask and they will help or find the " beer guy or girl" who will help. Enjoyed a Lost abbey Bourbon Barrell Angel Share with another beer guy there recently and the bar tender was impressed that we knew what we were drinking!!! Its in the middle of Pa and it has great cask beer too. Canít go wrong if you like real beer

Underneath the corner. Small, dimly lit dark wood, both wall paneling and 8-person bar. It got pretty crowded on a Wednesday. Bit of a draft from the door, so be careful which seat you grab. 30 taps/pumps and as good of a bottle selection as Iíve seen between Youngstown and Philly, probably Sharp Edgeís biggest "Belgian" rival within the area. Somewhat expensive, but the to-go discount was nice, given their selection. Had a good Belgian and local micro mix, plus some lambics and west-coast stuff. Also a few rarities for this side of the state: 3 Font. Schaar, Bruery Hott, and still some Voodoo Black Magick. Dave was a huge help at the bar, let me sample some stuff before picking out 1-2 and hooked me up nicely. Iíll definitely plan to stop in regularly.
