Modeled after the traditional pubs of the UK, the Wharf epitomizes the comfy neighborhood bar. They’re one of the only places outside the UK with the Cask Marque certification for properly serving cask ale, and their primary focus is on traditional UK cask beer. They have several on tap at any one time, and keep them in impeccable condition. If cask beer isn’t your thing, they carry about two dozen other beers on draft, plus bottles of Cantillon and Trappist ales. The atmosphere is cozy and down-to-earth, and the barstaff are friendly and chatty. (The owner can get irritable sometimes though.) They carry food from a restaurant down the street, as well as some nice bar snacks. The Wharf is not just an excellent beer destination, but a good "home away from home" for the expat barfly or foreign visitor.
Good everchanging selection; a bit heavy on the English bitter side, but still. Friendly, knowledgable staff. Cosy atmosphere when it’s not crowded (which it tends to get as the bar area is a narrow strip along the facade).
I think they have summerholli day. They have not all beer and the beer was served by a arrogant bartender. This place is not a place for a lady.

Great place, with a great selection. I will return for sure! :)
Update: My 2nd visit today 11.03.2012. The bartender was very friendly. In the afternoon it became a bit crowded.
3rd update: Great service, but a bit long waiting time due to ratio bartenders customers was low. They were very nice though. :)
A big plus for dog owners is that you can bring your dog. :)
