Vibe upfront is very upscale and super classy. I almost felt underdressed for the occasion. Luckily they have a beer garden out back for plebeians like myself. The front area is a super fancy upscale bar with fine dining. Middle area is a patio that feels a little more chill but still classy. In the very back is a tent with a bar that contains 3 dozen taps, sports on tv and they serve brats. Something for everyone.

From the beer to the food, everything was quality. Served in the right glasses, and the food was tasty and well made.

Service was good, nothing amazing but good.

Selection for beer was outstanding. I was able to get Surly Darkness for the first time since they'd had a Surly takeover the night before. They had a lot of other great stuff on tap. Lots of great hoppy beers, deep dark beers, earthy beers and even some ciders.

I had the brats, which were awesome. Supposedly they serve some really upscale stuff too, if the brats are any indication then its probably amazing.

Great atmosphere, beer, food, and bourbon.

Terrible service.
The Stuffed Jalapenos are stuffed with peanut butter, although it does not say that anywhere on the menu. The General Manager also has a peanut allergy, but decided it still does not need to be listed. No "*contains allergen" or anything. Having my friend go to the Emergency Room really put a damper on my bachelor party.

But the icing on the cake: When we informed the waitress that our friend was gone because he was at the hospital because he ate peanut butter, she said, "Oh, you should have told me."

Hopefully they decide to change the menu to contain info about the most common food allergen. If not, this will definitely be happening again soon.

This place is amazing. I ate at the beer garden tonight. Darkness on tap along with a ton of other rarer great beers. Food was reasonably priced and delicious. Darkness for 7$ per 10oz!? Sign me up. Made reservations at the main restaurant. I can't imagine it would disappoint.

This is a James Beard award nominated restaurant featuring the kinds of food - pork, sausages. ribs, mussels - you want to eat with beer and a beer list worthy of the food. Their 30 some taps include local favorites, and regional and national craft brews. They back that with a stable of bottled imports. It's a friendly place. We usually end up sharing food with the people next to us.

Talk about a gem of a restaurant. Dig great beer? Check! Dig great wine? Check! Looking for speciality mixed drinks, or high end spirits? Check! Great food? Check--in spades. Atmosphere? Mix of business casual and casual--there's an outdoor "beer garden" with an outdoor bar that is very relaxed, and indoor seating with an indoor bar for a more business casual (but still not so business casual that you'd be out of place in shorts and a t-shirt, despite some folks wearing business suits) vibe. Open aired kitchen is in plain view from the open dining room, with lots of solid, modern wooden furniture throughout. Really great place.

During my visit, taps included multiple Surly (Cocoa Bender, Furious, Bitter Brewer, Hell), a Fulton, an Indeed, a few Odell's, two Bells, two Founders, Victory Prima Pils, Ballast Point Grunion, 3 regular Sierras, an Ommegang, and the entire SN Beer Camp offerings. Could have done without the Beer Camp lineup myself, but I guess some folks prob dig seeing them all on at once. No matter--the other local/regional options were more than satisfactory.

Truly a gem of a joint. Not cheap (most pints in the $6.50-8 range, and entrees ranging from $15 to $50, with many smaller options available (in the $7-$20 ballpark), but high quality.
