Having been to this place only on Friday nights, it's usually packed, and in the summer/warmer months, the rooftop is open and the place is always buzzing.

Food is average pub food, so nothing special to write about. Beer, however, is another story. They have specialty beers on tap from time to time and is a great place to try out new flavors that they bring in. I'm not sure how often the rotation is, but my favorite is the Founders Breakfast Stout served in a sniffer glass. Yum-yum!

A good place to start or end the night, depending on which direction you're going in the city. (585 characters)

Great neighborhood tavern with a fantastic selection for craft brews both on tap and in bottle. Tap beers are always changing and they carry a lot of small batch beers. I highly recommend this place for it's really great beer selection and it's unpretentious atmosphere. (270 characters)
