In the last few years I have been to Relic a number of times and find that the on-tap selection will always give you something worth making the trip no matter how far you came. I happen to be roughly .1 miles away and I still leave w a growler or two or 3 and a couple bottles every visit. I find that Relic's beer fills a niche especially for foodies and beer geeks and without charging an arm and a leg for something unique. Mark likes to incorporate lots of elements in his beers (earl grey tea, brettanomyces, lavender, cherries to name a few things he's put into his beers) and makes a lot of styles you will not find elsewhere. From saisons to porters lagers to ipas and everything in between he always keeps it interesting. Some of the beers seem to be staples like the Queen Annes Revenge Porter (so friggin good) and some more experimental like the Cygnet Strong Ale w/ loads of Centennial Hops (again so friggin good) but thats the beauty of a Nano brewery done right IMHO. Always a good mix of beers and usually something new or even something different to try. The staff is always friendly and the brewer/owner is usually on hand to talk about everything beer and food related that you could talk about. Its always a great time. I would agree w what others mentioned that some seating would be stellar and probably help to keep people around for the duration of the open hours. If you like food or wine or beer or art or just a good time this place is a must visit.
