Traditional bar in midtown. On my visit they had a Smuttynose event so the selection was heavy on their stuff and lacking much else. It’s still a friendly bar to hangout with a beer and I see their upcoming beers looks solid. This is the kind of bar that would be a great start for someone just getting into beer and willing to try different stuff. Pleasant experience overall.
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.
Split level place with the main U-shaped bar located downstairs. The draft list is pretty decent, but the chalkboard writ ten draft list leaves much to be desired as far as specificity of what you’re actually getting, but the website is good and will let you know exactly what you’re getting. Dark wooden interior.... Comes across pretty trendy. Drafts seem to have a pretty decent rotating selection... Always good for a tick or two, even for a local.
Awesome and varied beer selection, great ambiance, amazing, friendly, and interactive service! I highly highly recommend this place!!

This is basically an Irish bar but it’s got decent beer. During my visit they were doing a Dogfish Head event, or at least they had just finished one and there were still a lot of Dogfish beers on tap. That didn’t excite me all that much. They also had some Founders and some more local beers but over all it wasn’t an amazing tap list. That said, I did find something to enjoy. I also got a kick out of the Dogfish tap handle that is in sections that can be rotated to make different patterns, even if I didn’t want to drink the beer coming from that tap.
It might be worth noting that they have a patio on upstairs that is nice. You can sit outside and eat/drink in a slightly nicer atmosphere than a dingy bar.
Nice double level bar with lots of seating area and decent for groups. I’ve been here during a Carton event which was great, so not sure how their day-to-day menu is on average. Wish this place was closer.
Right near my hotel so worked out well having this place close by. Nice small craft beer bar with massive USA focus on tap. About 15 taps to choose from. Great happy hour specials $4 pints. Service was great wasn't really waiting around for my beers as I get inpatient like that. Definitely pop in if in the neighborhood. Not many other options in midtown.
Popped in here for a quick drink with a friend when I was in the neighborhood. Sort of a dark hidey-hole type of vibe with a short bar fronting a cozy divey looking place. A very well-curated tap list and some nice happy hour specials as well. We didn’t eat when we were here but quite enjoyed the pop in. Bartender was efficient - there aren’t a ton of options in this neighborhood but this is a great one.
