This is a beer and spirits bar lined with tons of dark mahogany wood that conjures up feelings of old world pubs, but less cluttered. The beer menu is freaking 14 pages long! 14 pages! Whiskey and Scotch take up another 8 pages or more, so if that is your thing...drink up. They have a small back Barrel Room for extra seating and events. By all reports, the food is excellent as well, but we just stopped in for a drink. I was impressed with the vibe of the place--comfortable and upscale, but not pretentious, everyone there seemed to be very relaxed and having a good time. Service was very knowledgeable and quick when needed. It took us a while to make our way through the huge beer list (which included tons of beers I'd never heard of) and eventually tried out some of the stranger ones. There was a whole group of beers that had been collaborations with local breweries and chefs (including Stephanie Izard from Top Chef/Girl & Goat, as well Fountainhead's own Cletus Friedman.) I would love to come back here again and strongly recommend it to serious beer geeks.
Slightly pricy, but acceptable for what they are serving.
