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.

Beer hall atmosphere - you either love it or hate it. It was clean, wasn't too loud and no one seems obnoxious despite there being a game on. Would be better if it was more like a traditional german beer hall and a little less like a sports bar. Staff seemed pretty good overall but our waitress was slow at best - perhaps a little overworked. Good news is I liked everything I had. Food was pretty decent. Beer was great.
