Alex says

Lots of unusual stuff here, both on tap and in bottle. There are two levels, the upper featuring sofas at one end, plus pool and darts. Regular brewery events and occasional beer festivals. The owners are installing brewing equipment on the premises. Sister bar to The Jeffrey and Fools Gold (q.v.). Don’t miss this one. (3/2015, updated 1/2016)

Jezza says

Excellent bar with 30 drafts, many high quality, plus very good bottled list alongside. Good food too. Easy to get to from Manhattan or Brooklyn and easy to get from here to Astoria for the bars in that area. Owned by same people as Fools Gold and The Jeffrey.
