I found this place using Beerfly, and was suprised it was so close to our hotel. Stopped in on a Friday afternoon, and the place was basically empty. There may have been 5 other people in the hour I was there. Very calm and inviting atmosphere, dark lighting with lots of wood. Small patio in front, and larger garden with picnic tables in the back. Some older beer advertising and posters, tastefully done.
Large selection of draft and bottles, with a beer menu that looks to be updated weekly - very nice touch - as well as chalk boards with any brand new selections. I went with a Dogfish Head Punkin' and was offered a Live Oak when asked for something local. Was offered a taster to make sure I would be happy with my choice.
The beers I had seemed fresh and proper temperature, poured with a nice head, also looked like a large selection of glassware for serving other special beers (I got standard pints).
Service was good and reasonably helpful. Bartender offered suggestions to another couple from Australia who wanted a Fosters. For me the selection blows away anything I have locally, though I am sure there are other places with the same or better choice. There was a good range of local micros, imports and lots of styles to choose from. Unfortunatley, I didn't have time for a bite, but next time I will try some food.
$4.75 for a pint is reasonable, if not cheap (compared to what I am used to) for a local micro brew.
I will be back the next time I am in town.
