I read about this place on BA, and since I live 10 min away, thought I would try out happy hour. We arrived at about 4:30pm on a Tuesday.

What a wonderful little beer bar. Lots of heavy dark wood, some stained glass, and Belgium beer posters on the wall. Nice outdoor seating, but it was too cold yesterday to sit outside.

I went up to the cash register to order, and open a tab. Started off with an Alaskan Smoked Porter for me, and a Paulaner Hefeweizen for my wife.

No trouble finding a table at this time of day, but within an hour the place was packed. Service was great, and food was very good. I had the chicken parmesan sausage (served in flat bread) and the misses had the rib-eye burger, with a side of frys.

Both the Alaskan Porter, and the Pualaner were very good out of the Tap. I went for a Stone Self-Righteous Ale next, and was not disappointed.

Had a Deschutres Mirror Pond Pale Ale, that seemed a little flat. Perhaps I should not have followed the previous beers with this one. Also had a Spaten Pils (on sale $3/pint). It was very good.

Overall, a great time. Can't beat the happy hour prices, we got out for $35, plus the tip.

I will definitely go back!
