Awesome bar - upstairs has a good selection of drafts and the basement is where the magic happens - dark and cozy European vibe with a nice selection of Belgian brews. These guys scored a keg of Cantillon Fou' Foune for their Belgian sour week. I was in town for the week for work and I probably had six or seven glasses of the stuff. Wonderful bar that I never fail to miss when I'm in town.
I've never had any food there - but I know they serve a pint of bacon as an app. It's a pint glass full of strips of crispy bacon. Pretty cool.

We ate lunch here and really enjoyed the atmosphere of this downtown beer bar. It has an upstairs and downstairs bar and each serves different types of beers. We sat upstairs and ordered lunch to go with our beer choices. The food is mostly small bites. I had a hot dog that was about half the size of a normal one but was very tasty. The guys had tacos and they seemed a little more substantial and flavorful. Beer selection was a solid 4. Value was very reasonable.

Caught them on Monday after the Memorial Day Weekend. They had run out of a number of Belgium drafts which was disappointing. The bartender in the basement (Belgium beer location) was nice and very knowledgeable. If I had been there on Friday night before, the beer selection would have gotten a higher rating.
