I love this brewpub. It has been a long time coming for me to make a visit. I have had several beers through trades and growlers from friends, so I already knew the beer was top notch.
A large room opens up as you walk in. Lots of tables scattered about with some TV's turned to sports (with the volume off). The bar is towards the back and zig zags a little. There is a chalkboard above with what is new, and the brewing equipment is visible behind that. A concrete patio is outside. Relaxed, but the building is a little sterile.
The service is excellent. I was able to meet Scott and Jason for the Old Bat Rastard release. They are great and very welcoming. The other bartenders are great as well. They know just as much about the beer as the brewers. They put up with all the crazy BAs and did not mess any tabs up. Oh ya, they are fast with your order to boot.
The food is good. I had some appetizers and a pizza. Both good, nothing outstanding though.
Now, THE BEER! Lots of stuff on tap, and everything exciting and unique. Lots of big beers for the geeks in everyone, Hopothesis A., BA Old Bat Rastard, and BA La Muerta was on tap when I visited. The Morning Wit and Freetail Ale for the non big beer lovers. Tons of other unique offerings. I love it.
Quality wise, I have never had a problem with the taps. Always fresh and rotating. Though I have had issues with some of their bottles they release. Infected or just plan off bottles for what ever reason.
Overall, an excellent beer nerd paradise. They have an ever changing tap list and bottle releases. What more does anyone want? One of my favorite brewpubs.

Awesome brewpub. Great beer - although selection at times lately has been hit or miss (may be due to a second location opening and bottling more). The food is awesome, pizza and appetizers are awesome. Definitely worth a trip if you are in the area or just want a great pizza and beer.
