4.29/5  rDev -4.2%

Entering through a side door on a building in a side alley, one immediately is taken back by the dimply lit interior featuring tons of exposed brick, worn wood and the low, pressed tin ceiling, if anything screams cozy, it was the atmosphere. Tons of table seating, including a long farmhouse style table in the middle. An L shaped bar on the back left joins with a long bar in the back.

About 30 different options on tap with equal parts local, regional, domestic and Belgian craft. Bottle menu is quite outdated, so focus on the "new" bottles on the back of the tap menu or on the chalkboard.

Service handled the large crowds adequately and were knowledgeable about the local brews.

Overall, visit for the fantastic cozy atmosphere and large selection of craft brew.

You don't come here for the food, and that's okay, mostly small plates. Their tap list is always interesting, very Belgian leaning. Their bottle list, especially their rare stuff, is what excites me. Always something interesting and new to try!
