I finally got to check this place out, and overall I was impressed. I wandered a bit, figuring out where to sit, as there are many options. There's a lot of space to accomodate crowds, even on a Friday night. We settled on a table, and had a waiter who perhaps didn't love his job. I didn't get the impression that he knew a ton about beer, but the menu provided a lot of info about each selection offered. I felt teased by the couple of pages of upcoming drafts, but there were many delicious beers available to keep me beyond satisfied (Bell's Expedition Stout!). Beers came in appropriate glassware, and draft prices were reasonable. If you select something from the bottle menu, prepare to pay a premium as the markup seemed significant. While I didn't eat anything, the food at my table looked good. The thing that bothered me the most was the cigarette smoke, but this is tobacco country, eh?
