Went here on a Saturday night. Place wasnt overly crowded, alot of ppl in the outside section of the restaurant. The one downside of this place was that there was no music at all to be found, on a saturday night after the dinner crowd, so we didnt stay here that long. They had about 20 beers on tap, about 5 seasonal summer beers. Had a pitcher of hop devil for $13, which i thought was a pretty reasonable price. They also have a pretty extensive bottle selection, belgiums, celebrator, dogfish, a few that i remember seeing. I heard the food here is good, but did not have a chance to eat here.

Very laid back atmosphere, at least on a Monday afternoon, seemed like it would be a pretty cool place on the evenings as well. All beers were in top shape served in the correct glassware by a friendly but not overly knowledgable waitress. Selection was impressive for a college town pub that seems to specialize in food more than beer. This place is known for their Strombolies and they were fantastic!! I had the pulled pork and loved it. Not very expensive, nothing fancy but right up my alley and if/ when I am in the area again I will go there. A big thanks goes out to Uncle-Cousin Leo for taking us here!

Atm - Casual / family friendly atmosphere located in a college town. Décor is well lit and rustic with above average beer logo paraphernalia adorning the walls. It's much more of a restaurant than a bar which means the college crowd is sitting more often than dropping shots of redbull and vodka. That said, the young crowd helps keep the atmosphere jovial and the beer fresh, as their consumption helps SYF kick kegs at an above average rate.

Qual - I've been to SYF twice now, both times with groups of 6 people, and every beer we've ordered was served in the proper glassware. Tap beers tasted like they came from well manicured lines, and the bottles had survived their life in storage to arrive in solid condition.

Serv - Bartenders had an above average, but underwhelming, knowledge of the beers. The servers really didn't know much about the beer at all, but given the high turn over of the college-age work force and the fact that SYF is really more known for its food than its beer I wasn't terribly disappointed.

Sel (tap) - SYF's taps are a dichotomy of choice: bog-standard American adjuncts and other big-house brews vs tougher to find craft brews. With about 12-15 lines on any given night depending on what's kicked (like I said before, they burn through beer here), that means you really only have 5-7 exceptional craft choices. This doesn't really bother me though, as they're basically subsidizing the better choices on the lighter palates of the average college student. And what better way to introduce young people of drinking age to the world of craft beer than to have a tap of Miller right next to Mikkellers (Monk's Brew and Black Hole to be specific, as of my last visit).

Sel (bottle) - SYF's bottle selection is decent, maybe 80+ bottles. The beer menu comes in a little booklet where the selections are organized by style, and each style is accompanied by a few sentences to help educate beer newcomers. Very nice touch. The descriptions were pretty standard and I only caught 2 beers that seemed to be miss-categorized, but they weren't sinfully out of place. The bottle mix had a lot of the "standard" craft brews and a sprinkling of big-brew craft-wannabes, but there was also a great selection of tougher to find stuff.

Food - I've only had the Strombolies, but they're freak'n fantastic! Lets be clear, it's not the four seasons, it's not a high-end gastro pub, it's a pretty standard bar/restaurant, but man is the Stromboli is good : ) I highly recommend the build-your-own. I had mine with home-made pulled pork, home-made chipotle hot sauce, hot peppers, brie and ricotta.

$ - The beer is possibly the most reasonably priced beer I have ever seen at a bar. They hold true to set % markup over wholesale instead of the more standard tiered flat rate system, which means beers cost $4.52 or $5.17 instead of $5, and every beer is priced differently. The cost of food is also a steal.
