They charge way too much for mediocre beer here. My biggest problem with the service is that they have a tough time keeping the taplists updated - I often order, only to have the server leave, then come back and say that beer has kicked without knowing what took its place. They do a very poor job with happy hour too, some beers are discounted and some aren't, and it's very hard to determine which is which. Often get strong product though, however, they charge too much for drafts and WAY too much for bottles. Oh, and the place turns into yet another West Chester loud DJ college bar on weekends. Not worth it, drive the extra distance to go to TJ's if you live in the West Chester area.

This place is an hour away from home...but in order to stop in, I make it a weekend, and stay overnight at the hotel across the street! THAT'S how good this place is. Really.

It's a clean, classy bar. The staff is professional and knowledgeable. They are craft beer connoisseurs, and the selection is always interesting and unusual. The bartenders are talkative, attentive and fast. They have educated opinions, which is hard to find anywhere.

The food is served in a timely manner and is very good. The prices are (maybe) a tiny bit above average, but in a place where you are content and served with a smile, who looks at the few dollars here and there!?

Beer is fresh and is served in clean and appropriate glassware, and the music is good...they even change it during the day depending on what the customers want to hear! Imagine that.
They continue to impress time and time again.

Can't wait to spend tomorrow there! Hoping Brandon is bartending! Looking forward to the monthly chat about beer, music, sports and other random things.

One of my go to spots for fresh craft beer. Had many nice crafts here including my most recent outing to acquire Pliny The Younger...Twelfth in line had its benefits, even if it meant standing in line shortly after my children were dropped off at school at 8:45 am. Had a Pliny The Younger, Sucaba, dry-hopped Dirtwolf and Sour in the Rye. Peanut Butter and bacon wings are crazy good!!
