We were anticipating the opening of this place for at least 6 months so when they held a "soft opening" on a Tuesday, we were pretty stoked. Same top-quality beers, same ultra-friendly waitstaff, and same pub food (wings, nachos, etc.) that you'll find at any DFH Alehouse, AND it's right around the corner from Total Wine. After enjoying a tasty beverage at the pub, there's no problem picking some up for the house.

The taps usually serve the following:
60 Minute
75 Minute - Personal favorite
90 Minute
Indian Brown Ale
Chicory Stout
Midas Touch
Black and Tan
Palo Santo Maron

...with seasonals thrown in when applicable. For example, the DFH Punkin' is out now and definitely worth a sample. Oh, and don't forget to ask what's in the Vintage Beer Cooler. Cellared selections for the true "beer snob."

Overall this is the place that would be welcome in any neighborhood. Thanks DFH for choosing ours!

This is like my local cheers bar. Love the vintage nights and special release parties. This place fills up when special events happen but the staff stays on their game. The food here is to die for. Bottles are available for take home. My only gripe would be the pricing is a bit high, but hey what are ya gonna do?
