The sign out front reads "Cold Beer, Warm Friends," and that's exactly what you can expect here. This bar carries plenty of beers on tap and sells them at a decent price. It's become a hipster hang out, but this dive has lost none of its wonderful diveyness. Before you leave, leave a message on the bathroom chalkboard.
