Everything about this place makes it a beer lover's Heaven. The unique architecture, with high ceilings, abundant stone, and contrasting wood gives this place a real modern but elegant feel. A fountain in the middle of the indoor restaurant area adds to it as well.
On to the beer. Was there for the Winter Storm in which all the taps were filled with Stone's regular beers and a bunch of their old and rare beers. The second time I went was a regular night and they had the usual Stone releases on tap, as well as a ton of other great offerings such as Alesmith, Bear Republic, Russian River, and many others from CA and the west coast. If that weren't enough there is a great bottle selection.
The service has been great every time. Bartenders are right on top of things.
I haven't eaten much of the food but I will say it looks interesting and tasty. I've only had the arrogant bastard onion rings (great) and the fried garlicy mash potato ball things (pretty good) with their smoked porter dipping sauce (very good). The beer is a pretty reasonable price, but the food seems to be a bit pricey.
Went for Sunday brunch and had the Duck Tacos plate. Very good except they put so much of the smoked porter sauce on the duck its hard to get any other flavors. However, the flavor of the smoked porter sauce alone is great anyway, so you can't complain too much. Also ordered the "really soft and stinky cheese plate" which was very good. The food at brunch is a lot less expensive than the same food at dinner so brunch may be an option to save a bit of money when eating.
