vibe: 4 | quality: 3.5 | service: 1 | selection: 3 | food: 4 | $$

I am not a fan of this place for two reasons:

1) Incredibly rude service. They have a book full of beers and a lot of taps, and both times that I have been here, the bar tender treated me condescendingly for not instantly knowing what beer I wanted to try. Also gave me the stink eye for asking for a taste of a specific beer and not liking it (and thus not ordering that one). The bar tender treated me like he was doing me a favor letting me drink at his joint, which was definitely not appreciated.

2) Poor quality for such a large selection. Almost all of the old fashion's beers are Wisconsin beers. There's some hidden gems like Titletown in the mix, but a lot of stuff like Point beers that have no place on a beer menu that boasts it selection of quality. Also, many of the IPA I have had there have been stale.

For what it's worth, however, the food is quite tasty, and they make a mean bloody mary. Ask for the beef-marinated pickled mushrooms!
