Finally stopped here last night.
From the outside you would never know this place hides a really good beer list. Once inside you are greeted by a wide open space with the bar on the left. A huge chalk board to the left lists the 100 or so bottles available for your drinking pleasure. To the right hanging from the ceiling is a cluster of mini chalk colored signs with all the taps listed. Each sign colored and lettered to reflect the beer it's touting. Kinda cool and unique in my opinion. The tap list was about 20-25 deep and littered with some serious gems. Central Waters Bourbon Barrel Stout, Illumination, O'so Dank to name a few.
The decor is pretty much stock dive bar. Leaning towards the barren side. The bar tender was super friendly and fast and generous with the pours. It was sort of dead for a Friday so I'm not sure how much business they do. However if this is how it normally is I might find my way here more often. Especially when my usual spots are too crowded.

This bar was a little strange. Pretty average beer selection, and pretty dead on a Saturday night. Blasting indie pop punk on the stereo, bartenders choice I guess. Darts in the back and some games also. Outside it looks like a house with neons in the window, and a sizeable sign advertising New Glarus. When I asked if they had more than Spotted Cow the young bartender said "They don't really make any good beer, so we don't have any." Which I thought was a really weird thing to say, so I just ignored it.
Tap selection had a few locals like Central Waters and Furthermore Fallen Apple, also Stone IPA and Prima Pils, but overall the selection was pretty much by the numbers. Nothing seasonal or limited. Bottle selection was mostly the usual craft staples like Two Hearted and DFH 60 & 90 Min.
This would be a decent place if you're local, but overall not really worth straying from the heavy hitters in the area: Sugar Maple, Roman's, Palm, Bomb Shelter, etc.
