This place is pretty easy to find and parking never seems to be a problem. Then again, I tend to frequent Half Acre in the early afternoon on Saturdays and Sundays. Not sure what its like later in the evening.
I love the atmosphere in this place. Really unique and beautifully designed interior. White tile, concrete bar, dark wood booths and seating and an amazing weathered wood wall opposite the bar that a server informed me was salvaged from a 100 year old grain mill in Wisconsin. A really awesome and stylish touch. They spared no expense with this tap room.
The bartenders are all pretty cool guys: friendly, knowledgeable, and not averse to talking beer. Their house brew, a bold and juicy IPA called Space, is amazing. They can't seem to make enough because there's been a couple of times they've tapped out, to my extreme disappointment. They usually have between 8 and 10 different beers on tap. What really makes this place worth visiting, aside from the atmosphere, is the fact that most of the beers aren't available anywhere else. Their Space IPA being one of them, which that alone is reason enough to visit.
They have a store next door to the tap room where you can buy merchandise and fill growlers with both their year-round beers and their specialty brews. Overall, a great little place and probably my favorite place in the city to relax with some friends and grab a few beers.
