Drove by this place countless times before realizing it was a good beer bar. Always wondered why it was always busy and now I know. Decent sized place with large glass windows. Very dark inside, too dark for my tastes...hard to get a good look at a beer even. Otherwise a classy, clean feel to the place. Very busy again even on the late weeknight I went, had to stand at the end of the bar. Service was fine and it didn't take too long for the bartender to address me. Great beer list-a lot to choose from and all are quality selections. No crap beer at all. Good glassware used. Beer menu has good descriptions and is sorted out well. Also an extensive whisky selection. Will definitely be back.
update: have been here many times since. taplines are always clean and i appreciate the extra rinse with the water thingy. the new(er) rooftop bar is very nice as well. good service overall and the beer guy is super nice and generous. a go-to place. my only critique is the bottle list is pretty dated. food is upscale pub food and pretty good.
