This is a friendly environment with an eclectic mix of people from your local hipsters, beer geeks, businessmen/women, hippies, preppies, on and on. The bar is the center stage and has plenty of seating at it, as well as a decent amount of tables and booths for seating. The tables looked a bit crowded for space, but I sat at the bar and had no problem. Lighting is low but sufficient.

The quality of the food and beer were great. I had some sort of smokehouse burger that had south carolina style pulled pork on it and it was good. The person I was with went with beef stew and gave it two thumbs up. I hear the pizza is good there from mulitple people. Prices on the food are a bit high than your standard burger prices, but I also think the food is better than your standard pub burger so take it for what it's worth.

The selection for now is good, but not great. Rumor has it they will be brewing more beers so I expect this improves. The guest tap list is minimal, but quality. With the quality of beers Revolution is putting out, that doesn't bother me because I'd likely only drink their beers when I go out of my way to go here. Bottle selection looked decent, too.

Because we sat at the bar we had the bartenders as our servers and they were all great. There were three back there and we had each one checking in on us regularly. They were friendly and knew the beer. It was relatively busy for a Monday night, but they found time to engage in casual conversation from time to time. Overall, I thought the service was great and in fact better than most beer bars or breweries I've been. They seemed to genuinely care about the customer.

I was impressed all around with my first visit here and will definitely be back. I look forward to see what they have in store for brewing and distribution.
