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.

The food menu is rather small, but everything on it is done well.
The atmosphere is a pleasant loudness that a good restaurant/bar should have.
The service is pretty consistently good, and occasionally you will be able to get some professional advice for drink selection.
The beer selection is not only tremendous, it is beautifully organized on the menu so you can quickly find what you are looking for.
The prices are average.
Overall pretty high quality.
