Haven't yet been here, but have to wholeheartedly agree with you about the Knife. One of my favourite session brews; lower ABV and highly flavourful. Just restocked my fridge yesterday.G.M.

My favourite was Galt Knife Lager. This beer is just about the perfect full-tasting but lower-gravity (just under 5%) lager. Great food and well-priced.

Each time I've been there the staff has outnumbered the customers and once I was the only customer. It may be partly due to my late afternoon timing but I really hope they are busier at lunch and in the evenings. I'd hate to see them close.

An Urquell there recently was exemplary, leaving rings on the glass and as good as the same beer I had in Prague last year.
The Paulaner helles is good too, most German lager imports never taste quite right to me - maybe they don't travel well as the old saying goes - but this pint was excellent.
I'm starting to think though that clean draft lines is the most important factor to quality, all things being equal.
A draft Guinnness at a mid-town bar last month startled me by its freshness, it was quite like a milder craft porter. The owner happened to be serving and when I commented on the beer he said the draft lines were cleaned regularly and carefully, and he believed that was an important factor to the beer's quality.
