Visited on a Monday night. This place was open, while quite a few other beer places were not. Crowded when I arrived. Crowded when I left. Sat at the bar.

A – Well lit. Clean. A little noisy. Very small bar, but plenty of tables. Some are banquet size for big parties or possibly share with other groups. A place where you could take the kids or family. Not necessarily full of beer geeks. 4

Q – Proper glassware. Clean. No soapy odor or taste as is unfortunately too common in busy places that clean the glassware behind the bar. 4.25

S – Four or five waiters working this night. I thought that was a bit many for the number of tables. They all worked their asses off though. All friendly. Bartender worked just as hard. He was willing to talk but had lots of things to do more so than pouring beer. 4.25

S – Good selection. No big stout on tap, but a good spread for all other styles. An average bottle list. For their location, thought they would focus a little more on some of the incredible local beers. 4

F – As the name says, it’s about burgers. A few other choices on the menu, but I had the chorizo burger. Excellent! Great garlic fries as well. 4.25

V - A good value, better than some of the other more highly rated craft bars and with just as good of a selection. $$

Awesome place to eat and drink good brews. They have a good selection of beer. They do carry mostly Belgian ales and Belgian style ales but they have a variety of other good brews. Their food is amazing and their burgers are extremely delicious. One of the few places that carry limited and rare beers on tap. More notably beers like Pliny the Elder, Terrible, Telegraph and others. Brews are a little bit on the pricey side, around $8 for a smaller bottle to around $15 or more for the larger 750ml bottles but nothing outrageous. Onion rings are bomb here as well. Must try this place out if your in the area.

A - The first time I went into this place, I just wanted to grab a pint. I mozied over to the bar and was refused. The waitress told me I had to be seated (no room at the bar). What a joke!
The second time I entered, I went in with the lady to grab a burger and brew (who'd have thunk). It was cool inside and dark.

Q - This place is fairly new, so the quality of the place was still nice. Wood chairs and lots of bar tables and stools. Some seats inside and out. Dog friendly, I like that.

Service - The service was good. The waitresses gave us good service and asked if we wanted refills on beer and soda.

Selection - They have about 7 taps of decent beers including Racer 5 and Hoegaarden. Nothing too hard to get a hold of, but good. They also have a bottle menu; some hard to get some easy. Certain bottles are pricey while others are slightly marked up for corkage. Good overall. If I was with different company, I would have split a rarer bottle.

F - We both ordered burgers medium-rare. Hers came out medium-rare, mine medium-well. The burgers were juicy, full of flavor, and the portions were large. The garlic fries were good.

V - $14 for a burger brew is about the going rate here, but the food was good along with the portions. I will be back. I think this location can improve if they improve the quality of their tap selection and pay closer detail to cooking a burger to how the patron ordered.
