So I went to this location on a saturday night after being at a homebrew rally all day. This was a saturday night, normally I don't even go out on Saturday nights because I really like the crowds. This night seemed like it was a full moon or something because this place was crazy. There was a wait for everything, getting beer, getting food, getting a table, going to the bathroom. Just not my style

On another night I bet that I would really like this place but it was SO busy that I couldn't make it enjoyable.

They did have a big beer selection which was a plus and they had a heavy pour on their tasters which I always appreciate.

In general, seems like a nice place but not my style on a saturday night.
