for only being a few weeks old, Bad Apple is already a solid beer bar. a very laid back atmosphere and a decent tap list would be great, but there is also a healthy bottle list and a dining area in back, along with a game room as well.

atmosphere is laid back and low energy (though it may get busy on the weekends), with decor of dark glossed wood and dim lighting. the taps are very season-based, with mostly lighter styles for the late summer. this BA had a Half Acre Daisy Cutter and a Founder's Centennial, both were fresh and tasty. clean conditions and proper-ish glassware.

service is friendly and prompt. can't speak for busy conditions, but during a lax period on a Wednesday night, it was great.

selection is good for a place so young, but still could be improved on in the coming months. around fifteen to twenty taps, with no real focus as far as a brewery or a region. still, a solid lineup.

food is great. the home-cut fries are prefectly cooked, and the burgers are big and juicy. the black & blue burger was excellent!

overall, this place should become more popular as time passes, with the only downfall being that it is a bit removed from the brown line trains and the Lincoln bus stops running mid-evening, but that is only an afterthought.

Great food, awesome selection of craft beer. They even have $1 / 1oz samples of most if you just want to give something a try.
