2.73/5  rDev -25.2%

In my opinion this is a pretty odd place. It seems like a nice place as I walk in. A large area outside with picnic tables. Inside there is a long bar with only two chairs for some reason. Nobody sits at the bar. People just walk up, order, and go back to their seats. They will bring food out, but that is about it as far as service goes. No real conversation between the patrons either. Almost everyone was on a computer. The place also played the Flaming Lips ad noisome pretty loud. No real knowledge about the beer, just reciting what they have on tap which is not much.

There are about 15 taps, though most are typical Euro and Mexican light lagers. They do have Saint Arnold Amber and a seasonal. One tap for Real Ale Fireman 4, New Belgium, and Anchor Steam. The bottle list is Real Ale and Saint Arnolds again. Some Chimay and Sam Smith for imported bottles. Overall slightly above average. Though I was disappointed with the quality. I had a SA Amber and Anchor Steam. Both seemed like the taps were dirty or old kegs. I was also short poored both times. Not that impressed on this front.

The food was average. I had a blue cheese burger. The blue cheese was actual crumbles, and not dressing which was great. Though the burger meat was very dry and bland.

Overall, this is not a place I would recommend as a good beer bar. There are so many other good places in town, and just down the road at King Biscuit.
