One of my favorite places in the area to go to. 36 beers regularly on tap, about 5-10 new beers every other week. They rarely run out of beers too which is great, and if they do they always have new beers ready to be rotated in. If you go to bars with larger beer selections there is always 10-30 beers which aren't available. They always choose a great selection as well, imports and micro beers only, none of the on tap listings are watered down by macros. Guinness is the only AB beer most of the time. Prices on some of the beers can get a little high, but you can always get a flight to just try some of the more expensive options.

Food here is good, nothing out of this world but everything I've ever gotten from here has been decent at the worst. (I've been a regular for the last 2 years or so) The menu was recently upgraded and now has a few new items, also some of the prices went up which is too bad. Either way it is still very reasonable when it comes to cost of food.

Atmosphere is good, not too big or crowded, a few TV's but it doesn't come off as a huge sports bar. The service is really hit or miss, some of the waitresses that have been at the restaurant since its open are great and rarely miss a beat, but some of the newer people that work here have been lackluster. The bartenders are very much the same way, some of them are great at what they do and can tell you all about the beer and food, others you just shouldn't bother asking, the only way to find out is to be a returning customer.

Overall if you are in the area and enjoy beer then I highly suggest trying the place out, they are expanding now for a reason. I continue to go here for a reason and can only remember one or two bad experiences.

What can I say about this place other than AWESOME. Delicious menu (even breakfast) and amazing beer selection that consistently changes. My personal favorite is the Pork burger with apples baked right into the meat, topped with swiss and bacon and smothered in maple syrup. A ridiculous concept for a burger but one of the tastiest creations I have ever had. The place may not look like much from the outside but the food and beer are incredible.

Great Neighborhood type pub. You see families having dinner here most nights. As other reviews have stated there are plenty of big TV screens showing all the games but doesn't really come off as a sports bar destination. I think people are there for the exceptional beer selection and atmosphere and to a lesser extent the food. Not a huge place but not super small either. Decent sized bar in a U shape. Plenty of dinner seating and a number of pub tables along the back window.

Food is more than serviceable for pub type fare. Comparable to chain type pubs, I guess, not great but good usually. I do like their burgers quite a bit.

Great selection of European Import beers and very good domestic craft beers with plenty of choices on tap. I find the bartenders and waitstaff very friendly and knowledgeable about the beers and have gotten good recommendations from them.
