Stopped in with a friend on a Tuesday afternoon.

Upon entering, we were greeted by a very pleasant staff.
The long bar is on the right with some small tables on the side of it.
There is a spacious upstairs. Most of the decor is rustic wooden. Well-lit with a comfortable feel.
The bartender was friendly, helpful and fairly knowledgeable about the beer. A pint of beer cost me $5. I received my pale ale served in a weizen glass, no real complaint there - but, thought it a bit odd, but ok. At least it was not frosted, or even chilled.
There were eight beers on tap - the Chico Ale, Oatmeal Stout, IPA, Dunkel, Amber, Porter, Kellerbier, Honey Wheat - nice variety. They are posted clearly, with a list on the back wall of the abv levels of each.
There is a set-up for cask beers, which I was told they will offer in the future.
In a brief, friendly discussion with Jay, the Director of Brewing for Triumph, I was told that the brewers of the three locations use the same recipe for the standard beers that are offered in the three locations, but they are allowed to do their own thing for the beers that are special to the locations. Nice.
Unfortunately, growlers are not allowed according to city ordinance. (Ridiculous )
I did not eat there, but saw a decent variety at reasonable costs on the menu.
I'm certainly going to return there and recommend the place (which is easy enough to locate).
