Met up with Quinnsi & Botham at Paddy Long's to check it out. It turned out to be a pretty impressive place for a "neighborhood joint".

As a former 70-ish year old pub, it had that worn in charm already built in, with some modernized touches and Irish/UK decor such as an Arsenal banner and Irish Whisky signs and barrel heads. Dark cherry wood throughout the place, some tables in the back and along the wall. Two flatscreens were in 2 corners above the bar. The bar itself seats 15-20, and there was a nice little nook in the front window with a view of the street scene. A small patio had a couple tables in front, decked out with colorful Delirium and Hoegaarden umbrellas and flowerboxes.

The line of taps were towards the back end of the bar, and a chalkboard above listing the drafts. A couple Metropolitan (Flywheel & Krankshaft), Alpha King, and Imperial Brown Goose, which I did a double take at. There were some gems in the bottle selection, and solid descriptions on the beer menu. It was nice to see Cuvee Rene listed with the other Lindemans, in an accessible way. Selection was good with room to expand, with plenty of stuff for the craft novices.

Food-wise I had a Reuben, which was very tasty, and used a thick cut of good quality corned beef. Next time i'll try the corned beef and cabbage.

Crowd was laid back, there was a larger group in the back that occupied 4 tables, and an assorted mix at the bar. It was a relaxing vibe on a weekday night, which is probably different on weekends.

Thanks to quinnsi for the tip on this beer bar!

edit: 11/09 There were 4 Metropolitan taps on for the release of their Generator Doppelbock. Selection here is great for a neighborhood joint.
