So I stopped by this place on Black Friday around 1PM. It was fairly empty, but there were a few people at the bar. The place was comfortable and fairly well laid out, but not exceptional.

I had two half pints of their beer (Super Stout and Chocolate Peppermint Porter) and a tasting of the ABC/BBC collaboration beer. They were all good, none great. The Chocolate Peppermint Porter stood out among the rest - I really like the sub-style.

The bartender was somewhat knowledgeable about the beer, but was very attentive and friendly. He was very willing to give tasters.

The selection was decent. They had a fairly wide variety of beer with a Triple, a stout and porter on cask, a Belgian IPA, a smoked porter, among others. They had all 4 of the Sierra Nevada 30th beers on tap.

I had the nachos with chili, which was very good. All the food around me looked very good, too. It's certainly bar food, but is very good bar food.

Just moved to area and someone told me about this place. Huge interior with pretty decent beers on draft with some really good guest beers. The place is so big that a 100 people inside looks 1/4 full. Food was ok - bar food. Beer were decent enough that I'd go again.
