Lots of taps here and even more bottles to chose from make for a good selection of descent beer. The employees here don't really seem that they are very into beer, they're not very knowledgeable and don't show much interest in talking about beer with the customers. It's an OK place to stop for beer if your passing by but I wouldn't go out of my way to drink here.
I understand that they serve food here as well but I didn't try it, nor was I offered a menu or asked if I was interested in food. Maybe they figure everyone knows they have food and will ask if they're hungry.

This has been my go to beer bar for about a year now. The selection is huge with 500 bottles and 40 constantly rotating taps. The menus give prices (taps range from $5-8, bottles from $3-$20) and a brief description for the taps. They also have drink specials most days (check their website for specifics). I find the staff to be quite knowledgeable and always willing to offer a sugestion if you are unsure of what you want to try. If you tell them the style you are looking for they are always quick to grab 2 or 3 free samples off the taps for you to choose from so you can choose what you like best. The bar gets quite busy and can be loud on weekends, especially when they have live music playing. A few weeks ago they started doing trivia on Tuesday nights which is a blast. The last Thursday every month is brewery night where they feature a certain brewery on tap and usually have some sort of schwag/free raffles to go along with it. The food menu consists of soft pretzels, chips and dips, and personal pizzas along with a few other offerings. It is good for something to chew on while having a few beers but not if you are looking for a full meal. Hiro's next door has great Japanese food and sushi which is half off every night after 10pm.

I can't stand this place. I would like to like it, but I can't. How can you have so many beers and yet I would shun your business? Something is afoul.

I feel like all of the employees are dudes who have MBAs but got laid off from the kiosk at Enterprise Rent-A-Car and now are working here to pay off grad school loans.

You should see it, how many DBs does it take to pour a beer? Judging by this place, the answer is three to seven.

The selection is large, over 500 brews, but the beers are largely uninspiring and classified or described strangely.

I think it is cool that a franchise like this exists, but it is too corporate-jock-ish for me. I would potentially prefer the dreaded Alehouse to this spot, because it least in that case, a spade is a spade.
