This was quite the surprise.
Just read on their blog that they've expanded from 6 taps to 18! Very nice looking interior with a couple of TV's to catch the game/news. One of the better tap selections I have seen in awhile. Especially for a non-tasting event. I drank impy pints of Racer 5, Dragons Milk and GI Night Stalker. Absolutely incredible. Ordered a pizza here off a recommendation and it was delicious. Pepperoni on a wheat crust and it was incredible.
They also have an outdoor beer patio and the kicker, a Bubble Hockey game!
I wish this place was closer to me, I would be there several times a week. Great atmosphere, good help, great place. I will go out of my way to get back here.
This is the place to go in the Dayton area.

Visited for lunch on Halloween to talk business. Will definitely be coming back.

Atmosphere: Cozy and clean joint. Booths, bar tables, TVs - a typical small bar type atmosphere, but well lit and not at all a dive. Nice big chalkboard sign as you walk through the door showing what's on tap. Interesting to see a wide range of people in the place. Father and young college son having lunch, several businessmen, some locals, and a big crowd of friends getting together for an event. Very accommodating.

Quality: Lots of high quality beers available on tap and in bottles in a cooler behind the bar. I did see 1-2 macros, but from what I've seen of this place, it's so they have something for everyone - plenty for those who love craft beers and imports, and also something for someone who just wants a simple US macro lager.

Service: It was very crowded I think unexpectedly so for the staff in the place. There was a large crowd at the tables (a special get together) So while it took quite some time to get served, the waitress hustled as best as she could and took 10% off the bill (with no prompting from us) due to the wait. Beers were served in the proper glasses - Tulips for the Belgian ales, and Nonic glasses for the lagers that were ordered by others in the party.

Selection: I can't remember the wide range of things they had on Tap, but definitely a good range of seasonals, imports, US craft, 1 cider, and 1 macro lager (Labatts). To my surprise, they had on tap Kwak, one of my favorite Belgian ales, which was what I had with lunch. They had quite a bit from Bell's and I think a few choices from Stone, but again, I can't remember. Behind the counter I saw several Lambics, quite a few 22oz bombers, several imports (Weihenstephaner, Sam Smith, Piraat is what I remember). Honestly, something for everyone with the choices they had. I don't think you would be disappointed.

Food: Not a huge selection, but a neat selection of pizza, calzones, and sandwiches. I had the Gyro pizza which was fantastic. I will have to come back and try some more things off the menu.

Price was very good. 4 people, 5 beers, 2 calzones and one large pizza - $53 total.

My absolute favorite place in Dayton to enjoy a craft beer. Always have something new as the taps (18, I think) constantly rotate. Great locally owned place. Small bar but always get a seat somewhere. Side patio is nice if the weather cooperates. Staff are friendly and fun to talk with. Pizzas are the best - I won't order any other pizza in Dayton. Parking has never been an issue.
