Visited on a Sunday for lunch. Arrived just around noon. Very slow when we arrived, but definitely getting busy when we left..

Overall, I like this place. A brand new facility.

A - A little sterile as it is more a brewery than a pizza place/pub. Clean and spacious. Family friendly, almost every group that came in for lunch had kids. They have a small kids menu. I rated a little low because of the sterileness. Also, can't see much of the brewing process unless you are off in one corner of the place.

Q - No complaints.

S - No table service. Folks behind the bar and at the counter were friendly and very helpful. I like the video screens with the on tap beer selections, but it also means you must stand at one of two locations to consider your beer selection. It would be nice to have a daily beer sheet to read at the table. Maybe there is table service at other times, but I rated a little lower for having none when we visited.

S - Great selection of beers. 40 or so on tap, with about seven Pizza Boy beers. I considered the taps more regoinally focused, but there was a stone and two founders, etc. Also six packs to go, pick your six to go and some bombers. Don't not ask if you could buy a bottle and drink there. I found an Alesmith Speedway Stout, which I bought. Also 1L and 2L growlers available. I picked up 1L off Bumble Phuq. I was disappointed that the Pizza Boy Intangible was only available for in-house consumption, no to-go.

F - Come for the beer and then have some nice pizza. But there is much better pizza around than than the white pizza w/ added sausage that we had. The pizza was too thick and the sausage was run of the mill.

V - The food is still an excellent value. The beer value is dependent on the selection. My Alesmith bombmer was $18, which I thought was a $$$ rating, but I don't get to th Alesmith distribution area much so I purchased.
