Directions – L train to 1st Avenue, walk south on 1st Avenue, turn left on St. Marks Place (which is technically East 8th Street). Alternatively, F train to 2nd Avenue, use the east (1st Avenue) exit, walk north on 1st Avenue, turn right on St. Marks Place. Alternatively, 6 train to Astor Place, walk east on St. Marks Place. Note you if coming from the 6 you will pass Barcade (St. Marks) (q.v.), and Augurs Well (q.v.) is over the road.

Alex says

Long and narrow in design, this is a serious beer enthusiast’s place in the heart of the trendy East Village. Everything is rare, new, or eclectic and there’s often something new or from somewhere obscure that nobody has ever heard of. Some taps can be a little on the pricey side but you get what you pay for, that’s only to be expected. The beers are listed on a crazy magnetic letter board behind the bar. Don’t miss, I recommend to visit soon after opening time for space considerations. (11/2014)

Jezza says

Amazingly atmospheric bar specialising in rare and unusual beers. A few blocks from DBA and near Hop Devil Grill. Very small with one room, one long bar to sit at - and a couple of tables up front. Small draft list and good bottled list, the focus here is rare, new and unusual beers, and they deliver big time.
