This is a really good spot to grab a beer and a meal. There is a smallish granite top bar. As you sit at the bar, the dinning area is behind you. I came for lunch, and a lot of people were already eating and drinking by about 11:30. Though it was not over crowded, just busy. The feel is a bit more upscale, but not pretentious at all. Very nice decor, and relaxed.
The service was really good. I sat at the bar, and the bartender was friendly, quick, and knowledgeable. You can't ask for much more than that. My lunch was excellent. I had a pulled short-rib sandwich that I loved. Lots of other stuff on the menu. Burgers, brisket, steaks, brunch, and several lunch specials.
On to the beer. Plenty of high quality taps. I did not count, but well over 20. A good selection in bottles as well. Except for a few European macros, everything is a US micro. Nothing from BMC, or any of their pseudo craft options. A handful of Texas micros from Saint Arnold and Real Ale. Several options from North Coast, Stone, Victory, and Anchor among several others. They had a tap of Bear Republic Apex which is something you won't find many places. The quality of everything seemed fresh and clean.
Overall, this place is not trying to get the most taps, or the rarest beers available. They just have a bunch of high quality beers, great food, and a relaxed atmosphere. That is hard to beat.

My group had lemonade, burgers, pulled pork sliders, fries and a salad. The high points were the fries and salad. The rest we didn't finish. Yuck...
The beer selection was great but Clown Lounge #009 was served in a tiny little fluted 4-5 oz. glass that hides the aroma instead of a snifter. And, it was served at the perfect temperature so I could enjoy it right away.
