I was in today with a buddy of mine after work and really enjoyed myself. The help is nice and so is the atmosphere. They have a great selection of beer. I love the fact that you can see the brew works through the windows, and knew I was home when I could smell the wort boil from the outside of the establishment as I walked up. Great ambiance. I dunno about the pricey rating on this. It is pricey for me because of my wage, not in the quality of the product. They have live music and stuff, yet to be there for that. I need to shoot in there more after work.
