3.1/5  rDev -27.1%

I have been to this place many times. Just getting around to a review.

They do have a ton of beers.... However, I have always had the feeling that they over committed to a superior selection and pay the price in the quality of the taps.

I had a Allagash Curieux that was so bad and stale that it was almost criminal and undrinkable. It was flat and stale tasting. If you are gonna have a great beer like that on tap CLEAN THE LINES. What is the point of ruining a great beer with a lousy pour. My buddy had an Old Crustation that was even worse. He didn't even finish it.

I am also not a fan of the scene at this place. Very crowded with drunkard college students. That is not what I am looking for in a beer bar.

The food is Ok. decent pub food.

Basically I have always seen this as a place that puts quantity over quality. I want to like it because there tap and bottle list is so extensive. I have had too many good beers that tasted stale flat or just plain bad. There are much better places not to far from here (Public House and Deep Ellum).
