This is basically World of Beer with a very upscale bar attached to it. It is a full service bottle shop. The decor is very nice and it's definitely the kind of place you want to hang out in. Very modern and tastefully done. The space is a touch on the small side, but that actually adds to the ambiance and makes it feel more personal.
The beer selection is good, but it is VERY FAR from being world class. Saxo and Val Dieu are about the most adventerous beers on draft. The rest of the lineup is made up of safe selections such as Flying Dog Tire Bite, Young's Double Chocolate, Sea Dog Blueberry Wheat, Kostritzer, Paulaner Hefe and the like....all decent enough, but all availible all over town and it's all stuff the average beer geek has had a zillion times.
The Mellow Mushroom, around the corner on Sheldon, for example puts on rarer stuff for the most part. You can't get Fantome, Cantillon and there are none of the higher abv rare American craft beers (like Avery) to be had on draft. Special order brews and limited release stuff can't be found like they can at the countries great beer bars.
If the selection improves this bar could compete with any in the country as it definitely has the "cool" vibe down pat. Go during happy hour and drinks are incredibly affordable and are very reasonable even at full price.
For a trendy atmosphere and a place to go beer shopping while having a beer it can't be beat. But, for the best draft beer selection in Town others have them beat as it stands today.

Tried this place out while visiting for the holidays. Definitely a large selection of beers, seemed a bit inflated on the prices, though. It has a "corporate" feel to it that I am not accustomed to in the beer bar world. The staff seemed to warm up after staying there a while, but still seemed to lack a passion for what they do. I realize its work, but I appreciate those who enjoy running a beer bar and have a solid knowledge of beer. In the end, this place felt more like a sports bar/club, but with a huge selection of beers.
