Hit this place on our big, beer-fueled road trip in October. I did not go in expecting too much, but I left very impressed with most of their beer - especially the Full Nelson IPA, which will be reviewed soon.
The woman and I stopped in after an afternoon of visiting the law (for me) and business (for her) schools at Charlottesville. It turned out to be a great way to relax after trying to impress people all day. The weather was great ,although a touch too chilly to enjoy the patio. The bar and restaurant area was about 3/4 full and seemed to mostly consist of locals.
We sat at the bar and were very happy with the service. The bartender was friendly, informative and just as excited to talk about beer as we were. Half way through our meal one of the head brewers came out (wish I could remember his name) and talked to us bit about the process and about his time at the Siebel Institute in Chicago, where we're from.
The food was good, but the beer was what made the trip memorable. We split a flight of all six beers they had and then each had a pint of the Full Nelson and the Kolsch before grabbing six cans of Full Nelson to go. If you are in the area, stop by. Friendly people, good food and even better beer. The only drawback was that they didn't have a wider selection of beers.
