Stopped in here a few times - once late night and once for lunch - during a recent trip to SD.
Atmosphere is nice. It's certainly on the quiet side with loads of drink-related quotes above the bar in addition to a chalkboard listing the beers currently available. If you're having trouble reading the chalkboard like I did ask for a menu, they're identical. Outside is a small stoop with astro-turf - classy. One large TV sits behind the bar.
Quality is good. The beers are all served in standard glasses but the glassware is always appropriate. Good temperature and head is also served.
The service is good. We placed our orders and never had to wait long for drinks however our food took a bit longer than it should have. Other than that the servers were all friendly.
Selection is good. It's a nice combination of local, domestic craft, and international craft. I saw two beer engines but apparently neither of them were working.
Food was good, if not quite timely. I remember quite a few burgers along with a good deal of other alternatives.
Value is OK. It's a bit on the expensive side when compared with other quality beer bars but nothing over the top.
Overall this is a nice place that's more on the quiet side as far as good SD bars are concerned. Worth a shot, and if you're into mixed drinks at all ask about the Noble Experiment.
