The inside is set up like a bohemian cafe... very artsy with modern paintings, drawings, and photography on the wall. Sitting arrangements range from wood chairs and tables to leather upholstered comfy chairs with contemporary tables. When I was there, there was a two piece band playing a wide range of music from indie to top forty and they were decent.
I hade quite a few beers here, as did my wife, and found them all to be very good. I tried an amarillo IPA, black IPA, and a hazelnut coffee stout. My wife had the apple wit and rasperry wheat. All were very good.
The bartenders were extremely helpful and knowledgable about the beer. I even had a pretty long conversation with one about why they weren't bottling, local laws and hurdles, and plans for future expansion. She was insightful about the beer and more than happy to pour samples. The owner or brewmaster was out and about answering questions and engaging in beer banter with locals and out-of-towners. They seemed to truely enjoy every bit of their craft.
There were about 8 beers on tap of a wide array. It was a diverse selection of beers. Nothing aside from their own beer is served here.
No food but chips and seeds served here and I didn't try any.
Beer was very reasonably priced. Overall, I very much enjoyed this place and would go back. I'd be excited if they were ever to distribute.
