Was Thoroughly Impressed With The Number Of Tap Lines AT this Establishment. Beer Prices Weren't To Bad But The Food Prices Were A Little High For The Quality. The Service Left A Little To Be Desired...And It Wasnt Overly Busy When We Were There, Like 2 Waitresses To 5 Tables With A Runner (Would've Expected A Little Better Service Given The Circumstance)

Finally made it in when the other cool beer spots were packed. Plenty of room here. Lots of tables and a horseshoe bar that could be good for people watching, had there been people there. Dim light, lots of wood, and tasteful tap handles behind the bar with magnets labeling each. Personally, I like the crazy, creative handles, but not a big deal. Great beer list with a focus on draft beer--the bartender said 2nd most in the state. The list leans heavily toward offerings from within the state, so that should help ensure freshness. Unfortunately, out of the half dozen that we tried to order, 2 were out, so they could be better prepared for a Friday night. Service was attentive when needed. The bartender had that confidence and enthusiasm that servers sometimes have, but at least he seemed knowledgeable enough. Had some burgers that were decent (a little more seasoning wouldn't hurt), and the fries came with flavored mayo. Prices seemed a bit high, especially for the area. Overall, it's a good place to find a great beer selection, but the atmosphere feels a little corporate. Could be a stellar spot if there was a little more character.
