This is a definite dive bar with a cool vibe. 30 beers on draft, with about 10 or so Monkey Paw beers. Big wooden bar, dark walls, several TVs, and a bunch of tables are surrounded with nic nacs and creative blackboard art.

I only had a few Monkey Paw beers, and each one was very good and represented the styles well. Service was friendly with a bit of attitude which fit the place. If you are here, have the cheesesteaks - they actually have Amoroso bread from Philly to add to the authenticity, along with the cheeze wiz. The cheesesteak was the best I ever had outside of Philly - and they could rival some of Philly's best.

Bottom line - a must stop for any serious beer and cheesesteak lover.

Looks more like a rock n roll bar than a brewery, but staff was very helpful and knowledgeable on the beers available. Great collaborations and tasty food as well.
