O'Briens. What an unusual place. It's located in a strip mall, next to some hippy shop, looks like a German deli with its guts ripped out, and is completely no frills. But holy shit is this a must stop! It's gets really comfortable as soon as the sun goes down, the lights are dimmed, and your being a lazy ass in those awesome, comfy, office chairs.

Beers?
Plenty of amazing craft beers on-tap. Lots of locals, which was exciting for me, guest brews and lingering offerings from previous in-house fests. At least 20 on-tap and a fairly extensive bottle list. Every beer I had was in pristine shape.

Food?
Didn't really have any food, but all I can say is: GARLIC FRIES! Get them. I munched on an order, and paid the price for days after.

Word of warning: if Tom Nickel breaks out the infamous Chimay chalice ... run! Damn you Tom Nickel! Damn you!
