This place just opened a month or so ago and they're still in the process of making their beers.
A - Quiet and comfortable. There's a patio outside for smokers. There are also plenty of TV screens to hold the attention of quiet drinkers like myself. There's also a dart board, which I thought was a nice touch. One thing that kinda caught me off guard was the humidity and, well, funk that was coming from the brewing room, which isn't sealed off from the dining area. That threw my palate off a bit, but I doubt that it's a common occurence. I guess that's my punishment for drinking at 3 in the afternoon.
Q - Everything's quite obviously brand new. No complaints here. They only had three BOP beers available when I went, and all three were exceptional.
Service - Very good service. The bartender suffered me gladly and answered all of the questions I had for him. I also had the oppurtunity to talk to one of the brewmasters, who told me about the upcoming brewing schedule.
Selection - They're still working on their BOP brews. They have three available now with another one hitting the taps next week. There's four more that they'll be brewing over the next month or so. I look forward to going back there when they have their full arsenal on tap. In the meantime, they have a great selection of "guest" beers, all Texas micros. They had ten guest beers on tap when I went.
F - Their menu consists of salads, sandwiches, specialty pizzas, a few desserts, and a diverse variety of appetizers. I tried the shrimp alfredo pizza. It was very good, but seemed overpriced considering the size. I tried the Freetail Sub when I went up there a few weeks ago. It was very good as well. They use aged provolone, which was a nice touch, though the bread was a bit stale. And it was also overpriced. Maybe it was the cheese.

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.
