Stopped into Deep Ellum on the way to Fewnay last week. My friend and I were originally going to head over to the Sunset Grille, but I persuaded my friend to meet me at Deep Ellum in hopes of enjoying some obscure offferings, and fresh beer. I heard that it was started by former employees of Bukowski's.

Jennifer?, our bartender was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, and friendly. Aside from being a mead-maker, she clearly had an understanding of the beers she was pouring, which is something you don't always find when quaffing down beer these days.

Jim the bar-back who works at IF during the day was also very friendly. We exchanged stories about our custom Indi-fab bikes.

The food menu was somewhat limited, and seemed a bit pricey. We opted for the fries four ways with Gorgonzola cheese. It was rich, and flavorful. This taste seemed to reset my pallet with every bite making each sip of my beer taste brand new again.

With 23 taps including one cask, and three nitro selections there was no shortage of fine beer here. The owner clearly has a passion for beer. The draft selection was diverse with offerings mostly from the UK, Belgium, Germany, and the US. This was the first place I have ever seen Old Rasputin on a nitro tap. The bottle selection was equally eclectic.

If you find youself in thirsty in Boston, seek this place out. It is a true gem. The beer is fresh, the food is good, and the staff smart.
