Stopped in for the 2nd time yesterday, after visiting a few years ago just after they opened.

Decent space, hardwood floors and black tables / booths. Lots of hipsters & self-important types fill the place, though not packed on an early Friday evening. Servers all dressed in plaid shirts (hipster charicature) .

Promptly greeted by a knowledgeable friendly server at the bar. Comfortable.

Nice balanced selection of varying styles & breweries, both local & afar.

The real turn -off to this place, however, is the pricing. All beers are at least $2 higher than other places. $8 (+ tax) for a pint of Ballast Point IPA? $7.75 for 12 oz of Flower Power? $11 for a Bruery Saison? Pricing is highway robbery.

Had a few tasty beers then left. Had initially planned on eating, but due to the exorbitant pricing here, that's all I could afford.
