Stopped by on a Saturday afternoon around 2pm for lunch/dinner, I don't know what meal you call that, but sampled all the beers and had a lot of food.
Atmosphere: Packed at 2pm, had to wait 15 minutes for a table. A nice crowd of folks drinking beer and enjoying food.
Quality: Very high quality, taps served in appropriate glassware. Tried every beer on tap, all were well crafted, even the ones that aren't my favorite style. Growler was filled to the brim, ensuring nice carbonation.
Service: Friendly and prompt attention at the door. Despite a full bar, we were quickly served our beers to drink while waiting for a table. The waitstaff was great, very knowledgeable, attentive. Overall nothing but great things on the people end.
Selection: 11 taps of their own beer, pretty darn good. Also have a few guest taps, but didn't partake.
Food: Excellent. Pretzel appetizer is wonderful, the cheddar ale dip is amazing, tastes like they use an extra sharp cheddar cheese and the dusseldorf mustard is very good. The polenta fries were also quite good, especially with the smoked tomato aioli. I had the pork belly and egg sandwich...amazing. One of the better food experiences at brew pub I've had.
Price: It seemed reasonable, some of the strong beers were fairly expensive, but it takes a lot of malt to make a 11.8% ABV Quad.
