3.6/5 rDev -9.1%
A new and modern brewpub and restaurant on the north side of town which, according to its menu, tries to bring a bit of the Pacific Northwest to Texas. Nothing earth-shattering about it but, overall, not a bad place.
The restaurant is really more the star here than the beers with the menu selections sometimes experimental but always great (oh! those garlic fries). Atmosphere is brewpub modern, lots of wood and exposed steel with the brew tanks visible behind the bar. Full bar service, also, and what appears to be a quite extensive wine selection.
Beers are typical styles -- not experimental like Bitter End -- and are good but not terribly memorable. Five taps and a rotating offering, their Octoberfest was pretty good. Growlers available, no outside brands, which I respect in a brewpub. Worthy of repeat visits.
