This place is located on the infamous State Street, aka the homeless capital of the world from what I have seen in the past few years
Cool atmosphere filled with a lot of locals
Easily accessible right on a corner and gets rather crowded, especially during sporting events and later at night
Pale ale is good, not sure about the others, but I would not mind trying their double IPA because I have heard good things about it
Burgers are good, but the best thing on their menu is the rosemary and garlic french fries, and wow do they make you stink
Service was pretty good, but food did take pretty long to come out
Pretty decent beer selection for a place of this nature, prices are a little steep, but you can expect this pretty much anywhere in this neighborhood
Look forward to going back soon when I am in this area again

Awful.. I had the King Saaz Pilsner, and obviously the brew master doesn't know what the style is. The bartender told me it wasn't very hoppy. How funny. Pretty much a watered down IPA. I waited 30 minutes for the bartender to take my order as I choked down the beer. it never happened... and in the mean time someone sat next to me, ordered, and finished thier meal... my menu still sitting lonely in front of me.I cut my losses and just went somewhere good, just shown the street.

Nice place, good food (I love the pizza), average beer. It's on the main drag, so you pay a premium for location.
Consider it a good restaurant/sports bar in a tourist town that happens to brew their own beer.

Located on State St. with good parking options. Sat at one of the few window seats for some good people watching. The beer sampler had 5 of their concoctions, one was a messy pour that leaked on the table and floor. Ended up choosing the Gold Coast Wheat that was nice fruity wheat beer. We weren't very hungry so we picked the potato skins, which were 1/4 potatoes with sour cream, chives, and bacon that were tasty. The menu had some good looking options we were still full from the free breakfast at the hotel. It's a nice place with decent beer. If you want some intense beer, hit the Brewhouse on the other side of the highway.
