I've been in here a handful of time w/different crowds. The atmosphere is pretty good depending on what part you sit in, and what time you're there. I really liked hanging out back by the pool table area. I haven't taken advantage of the couches but it looks like a cozy place to lounge and drink. Sitting at the tables is okay, but not may favorite place to be...little intimacy when the place starts to fill up. In front of the bar is the liveliest place to be...it's usually full when I go in, but the times I've hung out there were pretty cool.
The beer is very good. I'm fond of most of the styles I've tried from here, and the seasonals are quality brews.
Service was average from the waitstaff, but behind the bar they are very efficient and knowledgeable.
Selection is worthy. They have their old classics on tap, as well as a few seasonals. There's pretty much something for everyone.
I haven't had the sandwiches, but I've ordered pizza twice. It's made somewhere else, frozen, and tossed in the oven on-site, but don't be deceived. It's damn tasty and hits the spot. I would rate this category higher, but there's not a lot of variety in the menu. What they have is very good, but I was surprised by how limited it was.
Prices are reasonable.
I really like this brewery and its beer, except for the location. Going to the nearby DMV usually makes me want to drink, but I'm rarely in the area, so I don't make it out as often as I'd like. Still, every trip is worthwhile.
