Very colorful inside, with some industrial feeling silver ceilings. There is a good look at the brewing equipment on the second floor. The general store has lots of kids toys, games, hot sauces, and a decent selection of beers. There were some Belgians, Germans, and American craft brews for purchase. The place was very busy, and it took several minutes to get our beers. I had a sample of all 11 beers that they were offering. Most were decent, however Anarchy, Chaos and Sierra Madre stood out for me. One of the beers was served both on draft, and on nitro. Food was good, and the service was friendly. Our server had good knowledge of the beers that they had. A very nice stop. While none of the beers were mind blowing, most were solid. As a bonus, they do sell growlers.

I've been going to Franklin's when they were just a deli. The bar has a great view of the brewery (glass) - I've done some neat photography here. The beers on tap are all tier own (if you want other breweries, downstairs cooler has an Excellent collection of micros & wines). The beer styles change seasonally with a few staples that are year-round. Beers are good but sometimes the tap lines aren't the cleanest. I have a super sensitive nose & have worked in the industry, to be able to tell.)) Try the VanDam if it's offered. Stouts and Porters were always tasty, especially the Imperial Stouts.
Atmosphere in the bar is locals, college student w/their families, etc.
Bar area also has tables.
Art on the walls and sculptures are "meh" but it's a pseudo-college area.

Do not leave without visiting the toy store & pick up some gourmet food items. (Hot sauce, wine & a 6-Pk)!
