I stopped in here on a recommendation from a bartender at the Map Room. It sits on a street corner. We walked into a place with exposed brick walls and wooden floors. The bar was to our right and seated around fifteen people. Above the bar was a chalkboard with 32 beers listed for the taps. They also gave us beer/food menus. I had not heard of a lot of the beers on the list. They had beers from Chicago to Founders to Germany to Belgium. I am not saying that I am a beer expert, but when I walk into a bar that has beers that I have not heard of I am usually salivating.

I started out with a Berliner Style Weisse w/potato. It was excellent. I moved on to a local brew called Troublesome from Off Color brewing. It was a gose which I have only had one other in that style. My friend and I each ordered a sandwich to split with each other. We had the veal bratwurst and the goat sausage. Both sandwiches were delicious and reasonably priced. I finished with a Freigeist peated Abraxxxas. My friend had a Cuvée Des Jacobins Rouge which he absolutely loved.

The bartender seemed very knowledgeable of the beers. They also had a couple coolers with bottle selections. He did get a little wrapped up in his phone when we were trying to leave. The bathrooms were unisex and reminded me of a sauna. There was wood everywhere.

I really enjoyed this place. I liked the gourmet treatment of simple sandwiches and the tap list was amazing. The beers are not cheap, but they get some less common beer, so I feel it is worth it. The food we tried was good and reasonably priced. I would recommend it for a try.

An interesting craft beer & local foods joint to visit. On this day the service was so so. The place was somewhat busy and the food was good, sourced locally, etc.
The beer selection was fine. Nothing blew me away, but they had a good selection of local brews.

Great selection, always have a great list both in terms of quantity and quality. The vibe is good, laid back pleasant. The food menu looked better than it was, the food was pretty average. Service was pleasant, but pretty slow. Would certainly stop back for the beer alone.
