Made a special trip down to this part of town to check out this place. Was glad I came in around 4pm on a Thursday, as my wife and I were able to get seats at the bar, and a little after 5 it started to fill in rather tightly. Really liked the vibe here, a couple of regulars were very nice, and talkative. Warm and welcoming place. Had a impressive tap list, not one of those places with walls of taps, but everything they had was top notch. I was happy to run into Flying Dog's Schwarz there, as well as a local gravity cask IPA. Prices were reasonable, especially considering the rarity/types of beers they had I think regulars might get a bit better service, but that is to be expected, and as it packed in, it seemed maybe even a little understaffed to handle the demand. I did not try the food, but one of the regulars raved about it. Nice place, and a welcome change to some of the more buttoned up bars uptown.
