I took my day off of work to finally visit this bastion of craft beer and classic gaming. The idea of drinking excellent beer and playing the games of my youth was a guarantee for a good time. Please don't suggest Dave and Busters as an alternative. They serve BMC at DnB, and there are too many kids around during the day.

At this location there were 23 beer taps, one cider tap, and a cask hand pull. There was an excellent selection. I could have ordered anything and been happy/hoppy. I was glad to say that there wasn't any BMC's in sight. The liquor selection was pretty simple, but you really aren't on this website for hard alcohol. I like that they had hard alcohol by Rogue (nice touch).

The menu was pretty limited. Each option is pretty original. I went with a bratwurst sandwich with pretzels. But, dessert was toast with nutella and crumbled bacon. It was amazing.

They have about 30 arcade cabinets. There were all of the old favorites from the 80's to the early 90's. Every game was only one quarter. There were shelfs next to the cabinets for your beer.

I recommend visiting. I had a really good time there today.

A wide variety of great beers, excellent tap rotation, with the added benefit of classic video games at 25 cents a game. Their food is unique and delicious to include an amazing Cuban sand which, grilled cheese, Nutella bacon, and a Mac and cheese sandwhich. If you can catch an event night here I highly recommend. Absolutely love it here.

Very Hipster but not too loud. My girlfriend and I are always taken care of here and the bartenders are great to talk to about beer. Very knowledgeable and really appreciate that we care about beer and are not there to just get drunk.

Good time and some cool older games if you are into that type of thing!
