This is a very good brewpub for what is essentially a chain restuarant. That is probably mostly do to the fact that they give the brewers at every one of their locations the freedom to put their own spin and influence into each of the styles. I really like that and respect that.

I have found myself at this location a number of times. I always enjoy myself. The beer is solid and sometimes I will come across one that is very tasty. I always get a flight, since the stout you tasted last year will not be like the stout they have tonight. That goes for all their styles. They have a nice menu and I have never had a bad meal.

All in all, this is a very safe place. If you find yourself with a bunch of swill drinkers, this place is a good idea. It will keep you happy as well as have plenty of safe choices for their unseasoned tastebuds. (841 characters)
