I didn't add this to the site, but I am the first to review it! Stopped in for lunch after checking out their website and seeing a decent tap list listed. Nice fireplace outside greets you as you walk in. The place was packed out at lunchtime, but the bar area was surprisingly vacant. I sat at the bar. The inside of the place is pretty cool-looking. I like the decor and setup. It's a double-decker, which is also a nice feature. The bartendress was helpful and friendly. We talked beer some. She knew more than some, which was nice. I ordered the Philly Cheesesteak with fries. Everything was excellent, but the fries were sparse. Could stand to throw a few more of those on the plate. Their tap list was pretty decent. Lots of locals represented: Lone Rider, Big Boss, Duck-Rabbit, Highland, Foothills, etc. Also carried some from New Belgium, Starr Hill and some others. Had a good bottle selection, but I didn't catch many of them. All I know is they had some Stone, so that sits well with me. All-in-all, this is a cool place and nice addition to the ever-growing beer scene of GSO.
[*Note: The bartendress told me that the bar hosts brewery tours for free. They take a van/bus to various local breweries and tour and taste. They recently visited Duck-Rabbit and will soon be visiting Highland. That's a really cool feature. For one thing, it should keep the people working the bar informed about the local brews and styles.]

Stopped in after the Summertime Brews Fest. The reserve beer list is as good as you'll find in a restaurant in the area and their draught selection was outstanding. Had a few pints of Big Oak which is extremely difficult to find since it is a local brew that is produced in very limited quantities once a year. They also give you the option to build your own flight to sample a variety of 4 different draught selections without having to commit to a full pint, which is a fantastic option to have.
Once I got through the beer menu I decided to order the Shrimp & Grits and it was probably the best I've ever had. With the help of a knowledgeable staff member I enjoyed a pint of Heavy Seas Loose Cannon IPA with my meal, which paired perfectly with the hop character of the beer and the mild spiciness of the dish.
Overall this place has a great atmosphere, wonderful craft beer selection (draught & bottle). The food & service was outstanding. This will be a definite dining stop for me the next time I am in Greensboro.

Stopped by for lunch Friday, July 22, 2011. The draft selections were mostly good. The bottle and reserve list were exceptional. I am looking forward to going back when I can sit outside on the patio enjoying the fire pit. This might have the best restaurant selection of beers in Greensboro. Good everyday selections and specialty brews. Had a decadent Duck Rabbit Russian Imperial Stout after a refreshing Heavy Seas Loose Cannon. Would be great to bring a few friends and work my way through their extensive reserve beer list.
By the way, the burger was great, wood grilled ads great flavor. Great value on all items. The server was very friendly and knowledgable about the food, and excited about the beers.

Stopped by Darryls last weekend on my way to the Summertime Beer Festival and was blown away by what I discovered. The draft list was strong and the specialty bottle selection was very impressive. I can't recall seeing such limited release bottles in on spot in a while.
The staff was friendly and knowledgable and seemed very gracious of our visit. The food menu is, of course, fun and delicious. I appreciated the scores and pairings noted with the beer.
Allagash Curieux and ribs- what a combo!!
