I absolutely love this place. It's a shame that I don't live closer or it would be my regular hangout. I stopped by on the second day it was open and they already have everything dialed down to make for an outstanding beer bar.

The atmosphere is great. Beautiful wood finished interior, no TV's, and decorated with bottles and Belgian beer signs. It's a little on the small side (maximum 49 people) but it's got a warm and cozy feeling. Everything looks top-notch.

The service is outstanding. The two owners, Aaron and Chuck, were behind the bar. They are friendly, outgoing, extremely knowledgeable, and Belgian beer fanatics. It is very apparent that this is their love and it comes through in their bar.

The selection is also great. 15 beers on tap, several Belgians and several non-Belgian styles as well. The also have a bottle list of over 100 beers, all Belgian or Belgian styles. They go to great lengths to insure that the drinking experience is perfect. Proper temperature, the cold rinse of the glass, and everything served in the proper glass.

This bar is beer geek heaven. If you love beer, and more specifically Belgian beer, than this should be your top destination.
