Slightly odd looking interior, with a mix of blue-collar warehouse and hipster/preppy coffee-shop. Overall very nice, though; while on the small side, there are plenty of spots to which you can retreat to have your own private conversation.

The beer selection is far and away the best in the area. A large selection of IPAs and DIPAs on tap; seasonals; stouts; et al. Something in excess of 20 taps, and a cask they change out weekly. Small but decent bottle selection. Most offerings are American craft, although they do get some craft imports.

The food is the funny part: they only offer pretzels. But oh, they're good! They have all kinds of pretzels, stuffed pretzels, and pretzel sandwiches. They also have a single soup option that is always fantastic.

Prices are very good: you pay what you'd expect for quality craft beer, and the pretzels are very inexpensive.

Edit: they have a beautiful - but very small - outside area, shaded by trees with a view of the river.

I try to come here every week; by far the best craft beer bar anywhere near.
