Service and atmosphere were so bad that quality and selection didn't matter. It took me an hour to get served. I was impressed with the ridiculously huge selection, however, the staff were so busy screwing around with the promo checklists of the regulars that I wasn't able to just get a drink.

Unassuming place from the outside. Claims to be "cultural hub of the Midwest."

A Saturday afternoon saw about 6 other people in the dimly lit bar. About 25 taps or so, all interesting stuff, although some of the really good stuff was kicked already. Settled on Fat Heads Trail Head, decent price for it. They have a pretty extensive coolers of bottles, which very conveniently can be purchased for carry-out. They don't mark the bottles up much at all- 4 bucks for Siberian Night, and 8 for Deschutes Hop Hendge. Very reasonable.

The bartender was nice, and indulged me asking about if they had any Three Floyds (I must have really looked like a choad this weekend asking for it, but I really wanted to try some), and gave me some good suggestions on other places to go.

Terrific bar with a very good selection. The bartender was a bit distracted and kept forgetting my order. They do have a very good selection, you won't be disappointed. One cask, was Jolly Pumpkin on this night, very tasty.

The crowd is a mix of locals just looking for a beer and to play pool along with some beery types tasting though new arrivals.

You can buy bottles to go and their markup is reasonable.

I'll go back.
