This place is built like an old Jack-in-the-Box converted into a brewpub. The interior is maroon with wood stained highlights. It is decorated with various bottles and tap handles, beer flags, tin advertisements, and neon signs. In the center is a half-moon tarnished wooden bar, supported by a few wooden tables, and ample patio seating. Classic rock that pre-dates all the staff plays on the overhead. The scene is completed by a few televisions, a juke box, and an ATM machine.

Behind the bar is an island that holds most of the bar’s glassware. There are a few tulips available, but it’s mostly shakers. This landmark is flanked by a couple dozen draft handles. Above the facets are televisions that give a live update of everything on draft. There are two casks and an impressive bottle list. The draft list includes Goose Island, Dogfish Head, Flying Dog, Southern Tier, Rogue, Victory, Lagunitas, and Epic. They also have six of their own “Buckeye” beers (they do no brew on-site).

I asked the friendly bartender for a local recommendation and all they had were their beers and one from Columbus Brewing. I had the Buckeye IPA and it was awful. That was kind of disappointing, but overall this is a pretty good beer bar. The certainly had enough handles to be respectable, and a decent bottle menu. I’d come again, but I’d think twice before I ordered another house beer.
