This rating covers several visits I made to this place over many years. Just before the first time I came here, I was at a friend's place getting ready for a weekend bash that was to come to pass in about 4 hours when his roommate returned from the brewery with the keg. He told us there was some sort of anniversary celebration, and that Bell's was pouring free beer for a couple hours. We were out the driveway before he finished his sentence. That trip spawned my fondness for this beer, and I try to introduce my favorite varieties to friends whenever I frequently move. Every time I have gone there, the number of beers on tap has ranged from 6-12, and I have been there on some quiet nights, eccentric night in Dec 2000 which was off the hook, and eccentric night a couple years later which was disappointingly tame. I enjoyed the mink soup, the caviar, and the roast pheasant...not something you typically find in beer bars. The service is good, and the vibe is pleasant, whether the place is nearly empty, or at borderline- fire-marshal's-maximum-capacity. Although the beer is my favorite part of this place, I have been here on some crazy nights that I barely, but fondly remember, and will never forget.
