  • Smells like a urinal puck but they have delicious beers
  • they serve good, cheap beer -- cheap enough to enjoy many, which is important, especially when contemplating the end of the world or why you spend time in places as uplifting as this.
  • Cash only but super cheap!
  • Great beer! Get some take out and bring it in. They don't mind!
  • Relaxed and not too busy. Good beer selection with friendly staff.
  • A rare example of a bar living up to its name. After sampling a beer there I left very much thirsty and miserable.
  • Beer is top 5 in the city. Musial is cool. But atmosphere is special. Grass Roots
  • Great, knowledgeable service, and always order the Peche Mortel.
  • Cash only. Decent dive bar.
  • Awesome place with awesome people
  • Surprisingly, I leave this bar the exact opposite of "thirsty and miserable"
  • Unabashedly divey hole-in-the-wall with a spectacular beer selection and knowledgeable service. Don't just take a picture of the sign - duck inside and order a beer or three. I'll be back.
  • Try the pilsner! Collingwood Rockwell.
  • The people watching on the small patio here is out of this world.
  • Nickel Brook Wicked Wench sour stout... Yum.
  • This place is awesome! If you're looking for an awesome dive bar with great beer on tap this is the place. Anyone who hates on this place clearly doesn't understand the point.
  • Cool little watering hole. Not much you can say. Decent beer selection.
  • Has become a craft beer store during the pandemic; has a great rotating selection from mostly local breweries.
