Was in Busy Bee about two weeks back on a Wednesday night. There were very few patrons in the place ... not overly surprising for a downtown location on a mid-week night.

We stayed downstairs, where they have about 16 taps. I had a Great Divide 17th Anniversary Wood Aged DIPA and my wife had Lagunitas Cappucino Stout. I was surprised to see a sour beer on tap, considering the relatively low number of overall taps.

The food selection is somewhat limited, but what we had was really good. I've only been once, but I get the impression that the menu rotates on a regular basis.

I'd definitely go back and have recommended it to out-of-towners coming to the area.
