Hit this place up after the suggestion of bobv.

It took a little bit to find this place .. based on my GPS, they essentially have the same address as the wine bar that on the same corner but upstairs. Finally found it..what an odd little set up. Extended bar and almost nothing but bar that's square (though the back is against the wall). You can definitely tell where the extension was put in - it almost seems like two seperate places. All wooden bar, roughly three crammed tables that are underneath a blackboard at the far end listing their food and beer offerings. Nice selection of local beers - plenty of Lawson and Hill Farmstead which is exactly what I was looking for!
We went in hungry and ready to eat and drink... however, not a great food selection. Pizza, calzone and sushi. I don't like sushi, and the size of the bar..wasn't all that condusive to grabbing a pizza and such.
Bartender was pretty on top of things and seemed pleasant enough. We didn't spend much time interacting but our order was taken and served promptly.
The prices here are extremely high and based on the food selection, not worth it for the food. The beer is steep in price based on the pour size, however what they offering somewhat makes up for it.
My partner and I stayed for a drink, and then walked across the street to grab food. This is a place for sitting and drinking - so hit somewhere else first for food, but get there relatively early as there isn't much space and seems like it could fill up quickly.

Love the Black Back for food from the Mad Taco and local brews from Hill Farmstead, Lawson's and Alchemist.
Ambiance is a touch small and low ceiling make it feel a bit cramped, but I sit at the bar usually so that makes it feel a bit more open. Service is great, attentive servers. Selection of beer is nice, not as expansive as The Res. but still great. Food is wonderful and relatively cheap for how delicious it is.
