It's hard to not find something here that you don't like, unless of course your just a curmudgeon. Being a mug club member here and living within 20 minutes of the place I guess makes me a little spoiled(and maybe jaded). At the end of the day all your gonna find here is world class beers served at a reasonable price, good food, and lots of live music. Yeah parking these days seems to be at a premium but that's because all you see here anymore on the weekends is a bunch of out of state plates. If you are lucky enough to live in an area where you can get the year round brews stick to the class 2 and 3's, also the taproom one offs. These beauties tend to be very special and are commonly the ones I leave with in my growlers, cheers!
