Been really anxious to check this place out. It seemed to be in the same vein as tired hands so to speak. From their style selection (being saison focused) right down to cartoonish artwork. This place reminds me of tired hands in quite a few ways.

The place is tiny. Luckily they had seating outside to distract me from the feeling inside like I was at a college house/frat party. The beer selection was split with 3-4 brittish inspired brews and 4-5 belgian. I made the mistake of ordering a beer based off the written descriptions...seriously, whomever describes their beers is quite the creative exaggerator. The mild dark saison was not good and trying to put down a full glass of it was not enjoyable. I followed that up with a cask ipa that was pretty awesome. Having had 1 really good and 1 pretty poor beer, I decided to try a sampler of the rest of the belgian beers that were available.

This place seemingly has a wild fascination with using local microbes to ferment some of their beer. While that might appeal to some and sound super rad on paper, those beers I sampled felt quite flawed with notes of plastic, bandaids, cream corn and mineral/metallic notes.

Unless you have been here already and are familiar with their selection, I would highly suggest sampling prior to throwing down 6-7 bucks for 16-20oz. I was really hungry and looked at their menu and decided this place wasnt for me. $16 for a burger better be a fantastic burger. Sorry, but after having the beers my confidence in this place was not enough to take the chance. Call me cheap or that I made the wrong choice, thats fine. I would not go out of my way to visit this place again.
