I stopped by this joint last Sunday thinking that I would be able to get a tour. Wrong. The place was freaking packed. I went to the store and got a couple bottles and was going to leave when I seen the bloated tour group leaving. That cleared the bar out so I could actually get a seat. I hate busy places because the service is usually lacking.

It is a walk up and order bar which I don't mind because that way I didn't have to wait on a server. I got a pint of rye stout to start out with then got a 6 beer sampler. There were 5 beers on tap that are not available in bottles. All were stouts.

They Eccentric Cafe is not a big place. I did not check out the patio since it was over 90 degrees outside. They had some stained glass windows and a loft seating area. I ordered tempeh tacos and pretzel rods. There are a lot of vegetarian options. I am not a vegetarian, but I do like to try new things. The tacos were surprisingly good to this carnivore.

It wasn't a bad place, but I wasn't impressed. I love their beer, but there is just nothing special about the pub.
