The newest brewpub in Ann Arbor is appropriately located on Washington St., or "Brewpub Row," as it's becoming! Gave this place a couple of months to work out the kinks and get its feet on the ground before visiting. Well, they still need to work out some issues...

First of all, the atmosphere was pretty nice. Darkish, with lots of dark wood, and not too much junk on the walls. Might actually be a little too dark. Nice long bar and some flat screens on the walls. The bar has a narrow "ice rail" to keep your beer cold. Gimmicky and unnecessary, but kind of cool, I guess. Service was fine. I couldn't really ask the guy too much about their beers, because they only had THREE! So, yeah, selection was terrible. They showed 5 house beers on the menu: 4 year-rounds and one seasonal. But they were currently out of the Light and the Pilsner. This left a nitrogen-dispensed cream ale, an IPA, and the seasonal red lager. Having been warned about the tastelessness of the cream ale and wary of the red lager, I ordered the IPA. It was a decent brewpub IPA, but nowhere near as good as ABC's Sacred Cow across the street. Food was average. I had a decent black and blue burger and my wife had the pulled pork sandwich. The fries were a little thin, wimpy, and from frozen stock. All in all, a disappointing visit, and the lack of beer is pretty inexcusable. Oh, and the BBQ and "Southern" food could use some more soul.

Good food which is available either at the bar or typical restaurant-type layout, as well as in the basement whiskey/beer bar and (free) live music venue. Offer at least a handful of draft options which rotate fairly frequently. Friendly servers, bartenders, and hosts/hostesses. Prices reasonable for the food (downtown Ann Arbor reasonable anyways) and two separate happy hours every day to make the beer very moderately priced on average.
