Review: Redux.

One night totally changed my opinion of this place. It was that bad.

Went there on a Thursday night for $1 pints. What all the signs they have fail to mention is the $3 cover, so unless you're drinking a few you're really not getting a deal at all. All the signs say all beers $1, and we were told that as we came in, but upon getting to the bar we're told that one beer, the one we actually really want, is $4.50 (the "Tremere", which suffers from poor French orthography (should be "Trémère"), and isn't actually a word...a French-speaking person would hear it as "Très Mère" - "very mother"...but I digress). Bartender gave me a big attitude when I made a rather disgusted/pissed off face upon hearing the news.

So we each order a pint of the very-subpar "Dunkle Weizenbock". Came in a hot plastic pint glass. Mmm, appetizing. Had another beer after that, took a while to get my second after the bartender snatched my empty glass without asking me what I wanted before walking to the end of the bar to chat up some guy. Girlfriend had to stick her tits out (figuratively, of course) to get the attention of the male bartender so I could get another warm plastic pint of beer. Oh, and all the beer tastes like bad homebrew (I should know). A couple of months ago it wasn't that bad, but all 3 beers I tasted had a slight off taste that I couldn't put my finger on, like a bit of an infection or overstressed yeast.

Here's a bit of nonsensical calculus...f(false advertising^poor service*TAN(crappy beer))=I'm never going back there again. Which is sort of a shame, because I work so close to there now (and would be in a position to recommend it to lots of people from out of town who are looking for a place to go...). I really thought this place had shaken off the "chain brewpub" stigma, but they're just feeding it in my mind now.
