I travel to GR about once a month and this is my go-to for great beer and good food.

They usually have a solid tap list that includes some one-offs that you can't get anywhere but there. I haven't tried a beer there that isn't worthy of a solid score on BA!

The service is great with bartenders that are on key with service and knowledge of thier great beers. They are willing to give you a sample of anything you like for free.

The food is exceptional. I have tried many different sammies that are all good. The Godfather is the BOMB!

They have great specials depending on the night you come and offer a wonderful experience.

This is my favorite beer bar I have been to!
