Hopefully I wasn't too harsh on the numeric ratings, but I felt I should be critical of the things that stick out in my memory as being negative. The biggest negative is the long wait o get in. But that must tell you something. It is in a cool location (HOT in the summer) - right on a nifty strip that dumps into the ocean (beach), and they have my favorite beer.

The coolest thing about going here is to try some of the things you never would find on tap in NE Ohio, like Raison D'etre (which I now understand). The food was OK, but you come to a place like this for beer, of course.

I think I expected an even better selection on tap (and in bottles). I dropped a bundle on take home stuff. Come prepared to do that (you want to take some of this home with you). I hope to be back.

Cheap food that is actually awesome pub fare made from spent grains! Pair that with experimental flights and you have a winning combo. I even got to meet Sam and have a drink on him!

One of my favorite places on the planet. Great staff - from hostesses to managers and of course the bar staff. The exclusives are always interesting and unique, but the year-round selections ensure a good choice is always available. Food is good and has been getting better and better. Don't miss this place!

Not had the food besides great dessert. They offer a flight sampler deal that is awesome if taken advantage of. TRY EVERYTHING. Positive Contact is a personal favorite.

Been going here since early 1996, and it never fails to impress. Excellent vibe with a great look, feel and good good people. Music is always top notch. Very good ongoing selection of great DFH beers made special by the cask and one off beers that are always fun to try. Food is interesting and consistently excellent.
Business has grown, and the old pub feel is now a much busier restaurant like feel...at least on weekend nights and the summer crush. But on off hours and/or off season...the off centered clearly returns and its really a great personal beer experience you can share with the staff and others there to drink world class beer in a local pub setting. One of my favorites, and definitely one of the very best of the bigger craft beer company brew pubs.

It's a great local craft beer like pub, but also could be a great meet up with friends. You will need to get there early to get a seat. My husband and I stood around for a half an hour on a early November evening, hoping to get dinner, but still wasn't dissatisfied by the tap list instead. We decided to make the most of it, and grab a couple beers, walk out on the empty early winter deck and enjoy a Java cigar over our brews. The Bitch's Brew on tap is a must. We had previously had it in bottle several times, but it made it all the better to have it fresh. Also the only place to get Dogfish Head Vodka. Don't pass up on this. Slightly pricey for a 750ml, but well worth the quality. We made our 750ml Peanut Butter Vodka last for a whole year, as a treat!
A must!
