Arrived shortly before the lunch crowd on a Friday afternoon. The place is pretty much as the other reviewers have described. I noticed that there was heavy metal (hair band) music playing on the sound system. Not used to hearing Ratt unless I'm at a strip club.
Seated rather quickly, and before the crowds arrived, which were ten to twelve people deep waiting for tables by the time we finished lunch and went on our way.

After there was some initial confusion with who was going to serve us, we were happily enjoying the sampler. The host took our beer order and never returned. The waiter came by with water, and then took our beer order again.

Seems there were a few beers that they didn't have on the menu, but being limited to seven beers, we found something to enjoy. all of the beers aside from he Old 76 were light bodied, and seemed to all be about the same abv.

I ordered the cod which was one of the items included in the specials of the day. They were also offering a pork bbq as well. My lovely wife enjoyed the cranberry turkey melt. We both enjoyed our lunches. My cod was reminiscent of a po-boy sandwich. While the coleslaw was slightly overdressed it did hit the spot.

Beers on hand at the time of our visit:
Old 76
Sucker Blonde
Willowughby's scottish
Wassick White
Bucks Honey wheat
Belgian White
Nut Brown- Which was a very good beer, and I'm not a nut brown fan.

Best part of this place is the tasting flights. You get a large laminated sheet with about ten of their beers pictured and it makes it easy to try most of their lineup in one sitting. They have a bar that you can visit but the experience is better if you stay for a meal. Food is pretty decent. Lots of merchandise available but much of it was for seasonal beers that they were not producing at the moment, so i didnt really want to buy stuff for something that i wasnt able to try.
