This is an interesting brewpub. After spending two evenings here and sampling almost everything they offered, I'm now a big fan of Ale Asylum. Their beer is outstanding. The brewpub keeps almost all their offerings there on tap as well as some stuff they don't bottle or release only seasonally (I'm thinking specifically of Triple Nova here. Awesome beer!).

The place itself is a little small, especially the bar. But the servers are friendly and seem to genuinely like and know something about their beer, something I don't take for granted in a town whose bars usually just hire college kids.

The only negatives I'd have are the food and the prices. The food is atrociously overpriced and not very good (frozen mini-pizzas that they unwrap, throw some toppings on and put in a mini-oven, then sell for like $7). And the beer is a little expensive for the setting.

But I'd still highly recommend visiting here and trying a variety of their beer so you know what to buy in bottle before you leave town.
