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)!

Visited not too long ago with my fiancee. This place brews there own beer(always good). Atmosphere is very nice. Good bar are to hang out and an upstairs area with more tables. Food was very good. We both had pizzas and they were delicious.
Beer selection was pretty good. I would love to see more beers to chose from, but they can only brew so many at one time. They seem to switch up some often. We tried several beers and they were all very good quality. My favorite was the twisted turtle pale ale. The IPA and the antilles stout were also very good.
