I have been in to get take home bottles, buy stuff at the store and recently had lunch. Went in the day after Thanksgiving to do some shopping, then had a couple of the class 3 beers and a bowl of chili. Both were excellent. It was quite busy but I got served promptly and my server even went to the other bar to get the beer I wanted because it was not at the bar I was sitting at.
The people that sat down next to me did have a bit of a wait to get noticed, I was surprised it took a bit long. It was getting busier though.

Talking with the different bartenders was fun. They definitely knew their stuff on beer and I learned a few new things. I enjoyed my visit, great stop for lunch.
