i really don't know what more to add that others haven't said. this place is fantastic. it's in stone's old location in an industrial area. public transportation is non-existent.

the bar area is l-shaped. one side hands the merchandise and to-go bottles, the other side does the taps. lost abbey has a big barrel-aging program, and the barrels are right around you as you drink. the vintage bottles are fantastic, but they are on-premises only.

i generally go mid-week and once again on friday or saturday night. obviously the mid-week excursions are best for getting faster service, but i never have an issue. all the employees there are friendly and welcoming. sometimes if i see tomme he'll wave and buy me a pint.

tap prices are very generous. for people crabbing about bottles being expensive, the glasses are always cheap and large, which is a good mechanism for getting people to drink draft beer, which is how beer should be served. and for what you're getting (world-class barrel-aged beer), it's a damn steal.

there's no food.

Came for 2014 anniversary party in May. Great beer selections, most Port also available, aged & fresh bottles. Really nice barrel room in back. I like the brewery feel to this place, food trucks outside. When you've had your fill the bartenders will reccomend another brewery in area, just bring a DD!!
