Mentor warned me that this place would be "somewhat crunchy." Ha! Man, let not bohemianism deter me from anything, especially beer.

The space was, at base, a storefront, longer than wide, with lots of fabric work and colorful painting on the walls. The best was the painted hops vines running the length of the exposed ducting in the overhead. Booths lined the right side, headed aft, with standard tables in the center and a long bench with tables fronting it on the left side. The kitchen was three-quarters of the way aft with a passageway to the left leading to the lavatories and the brewhouse, behind glass. The chalkboard with the day's offering listed looked like a mosaic. Very artistic!

I had a sampler that included a java porter; English IPA; American IPA; Jah Mon Ginger (!); a light Golden Ale; and a double IPA. My pick? The ginger beer, mais oui! It really was all good and enough to entice me to come back. In fact, it made me realize that I should visit the Mountain and Pacific states more often.

A: More of a restaurant feel than a brewery.
Q: Their beers are bipolar. Either on the low end or very good.
S: Service was pretty slow. While we had some food, we were also sampling beer. Took them about 10 minutes to bring the beer out. Not sure why.
Sel: More than 10 beers on tap. The Java Porter was the stand out.
O: Not sure how they handle the samplers. It's on the menu but it seemed to confuse the waiter. Then they said if you just want to try a taste you can do that (looked like 1 oz). I was more than willing to pay for the sampler as I was there to sample. So after one flight the next 'flight' came out as 1 oz tastes. Oddly the waiter charged me the price of a full flight. I had told them I was willing to pay for the samples, but I didn't mean bring me tasters and charge me for full size samplers. It was odd.
