The outside was unassuming, it reminded me a lot of Lennies in Bloomington, but the interior was outstanding. Two levels, outdoor patios, amazing woodwork, a giant horseshoe bar and a ton of seating make this a diamond in the rough.

Some of the best and most innovative food I’ve ever had anywhere is served here at this outstanding brewpub. One of the sides they offer is a garlic plantain mash that I found absolutely delicious. My Mom didn’t quite agree, so I ate all of hers too! The Cuban sandwich I had featured both deli ham and pulled pork, and while it could have used a touch of mustard, it was fantastic. The only thing I wasn’t blown away by was the dessert. The carrot cake came highly recommended, and was a bit of an inside-out version with layers of cream cheese inside and the walnuts on top. It was good, but it was subpar for a carrot cake.

I hate to sound like a broken record, but the beer here is outstanding. They offer cask ale varieties, which is always a huge plus in my book. I thoroughly enjoyed everything I tried, but the Scottish Ale prevailed above all others. It had a strong caramel flavor and a wonderful finish that left me wanting more. One of my favorites of all-time.

Excellent and prompt service. Unfortunately, our waitress wasn’t a cheesecake fan, or the dessert she recommended may have put them over the top…
