I have been here twice now. I like this place really cool inside. Great selection of taps about 40. I never ate here but have seen the menu and the food selection is good. The beers are always fresh. Decent place. I would visit again.
Extremely cool, Lower East Side hipster vibe with about 40 taps and wood communal bench tables. The food is eclectic, featuring warm popcorn with pork fat drizzled on top along with spices (paprika?). Flavorful. The beers are unusual, but not mind-blowing. However, for a restaurant, the beer selection does NOT get any better in NYC. That said, this place seems more like a bar with food than a restaurant. The scene: guys wearing fedoras. Anorexic women picking at their food. Beer-savvy waitstaff. Lastly, the decor is really cool: they took apart some log cabin in Vermont (it would seem) and put the wood planks on the walls. Interesting.
Met a friend for lunch and was impressed. Tried a few new beers. Good selection for most anyone. Crowd was a nice mix. Service was excellent. We had at least 4 staff members that made sure everything was good. Beer was excellent. Served in appropriate glass ware. Food was great. Short rib burger was one of the best I have had in NYC and the seafood sausage was pretty amazing. Prices were average for NYC.
Very cool place. We sat with our elbows and beers resting on a ledge looking into the street. Tons of selection, and the food was fantastic. It looks like others had problems with the service, but not us.
Smaller place, with pretty cool vibes. Long wooden tables, and wooden walls provide a cozy feel. Pretty solid beer selection. A lot of choice, but nothing super rare, and maybe a little pricey (but its probably on par with NYC pricesthough). Food was pretty solid, while limited selection around lunchtime. Service was friendly and knowledgeable. Definately worth a trip.

Yeah, this place is pretty awesome. There are lots of hipster-types hanging about, but hey... there are tons of íem in Williamsburg and that hasnít stopped me from drinking there. Beautiful galvanized zinc bar backed by a single row of 40 taps. Everything here is quality... no macros and the bottle selection, while lacking in anything rare, certainly has a wide selection of good stuff. The food is where this place really shines. Interesting and high quality foods especially. I had the sliders when I was there, and while they were a little too precious for my taste, they were very tasty. Itís a great spot if (like me) you love good beer, but your wife doesnít.
Gorgeous little bar with plenty of space between tables, families and couples alike enjoying themselves, eating or simply drinking. Beer menu has plenty to keep you busy for a while and the food looked quite good too for pub food. All in all, not one of NYCís finest beer establishments, but a mighty pleasant bar where one can have fun with a few brews at any time of day.
Industrial looking interior with huge wooden benches. Good selection of beer on tap, about 40 of them. Majority are craft beer classics, but there are some interesting brews as well. Lots service was good. Worth stopping for a couple of drinks.
Had a work event in the back room. Cool interior and a garage style window that we opened overlooking street was nice touch. Solid draft list not terribly exciting but some tasty beverages. Waitress was nice and attentive. Food was ok forvwhat we had.
