I made my way up to the pub for the Kentucky Breakfast Stout release with some of my buddies. The place is absolutely gorgeous with lots of natural lighting and glass walls to see into the brewery. The no smoking is great as well. The beers seemed to be served at proper temperatures and were about standard prices. The only food we got was some kind of warm beer cheese platter that was very enjoyable. I wasn't blown away with the tap list, but it was impressive. Off the top of my head they had: Kentucky Breakfast Stout, Imperial Stout, Oatmeal Stout, Frangelic Stout, Rubaeus, Centennial IPA, Pale Ale,and Dirty Bastard. The service was spectacular. The entire wait staff was very polite, attentive, and in good humor. It is so refreshing to see people in the service industry that don't seem annoyed. Overall, it was a very worthwhile trip and it's breweries and trips like this that make me sad that I am leaving the state.
