this place is great. the atmosphere is nice. very laid back, and was easy to find a place to sit at the bar or at a table. beers are pretty much all served in the correct glassware from what i could tell, especially the belgian stuff down stairs. it was pint night when we went, so they give you a pint glass to keep when you order the beer that is on special at the time, for us it was boulder's mojo risin' double ipa on cask.

service was good also, our bartender kept a watchful eye on our glasses to make sure there was always something in 'em. the selection was great, in fact it was a shame that i was driving and couldn't try more of their brews. we ordered a couple soft pretzels that came with some local mustard, it was alright, not the greatest.

overall this is an awesome bar to come visit if you're in town and want to find some great craft beer on tap.

Excellent selection of both Belgian and American draft options. The Belgian bar downstairs is dimly lit and kind of feels like you're in a cave. The American bar is upstairs, and has your typical craft bar vibe with beer paraphernalia all around. They had Bomb! and Eric's Ale on tap, so I was happy.
