I really liked the feel of this place. The building it's in used to be a bank, and the decor (and pretty much everything) reflects this. They did a great job refurbishing it, and the whole place has a nice, classy feel to it, and it even gives off the vibe of an old speakeasy. There's a small bar that seats about 6 people, and plenty of dining space.
As far as beer goes, the selection wasn't great, and the beer itself was pretty basic stuff. But give them time...they did just open, and they're just getting started. There were four on tap when I visited--Belgian blonde, hefe, stout, ESB; all ok, but nothing great--but it looks like they have a capacity to have a lot more on draught. Seems like they'd have a few guest taps on to keep things interesting, but we'll see what the future holds. If they actually produce enough to keep 10 or more of their own beers on, then power to them.
Service was fine. They seem to have a lot of employees, so I'm guessing the place gets busy. The owner was there, and both he and he bartenders have a good knowledge or their products. There was also someone getting a tour, so it's good that the people there know the history of their establishment as well as being educated in the brewing process.
The food menu is pretty small, but they have some interesting items on it. The main item is flatbread pizza, but there are also some smaller bites, and "folds," which are basically pizza turnovers with more "craft-like" ingredients. Tasty stuff, and in good quantity. Prices were decent on everything.
I'd say this place is off to a good start, and I will definitely be keeping an eye on them to see how they progress. I don't get to the area enough to visit often, but I will definitely be going back when I can.

Nice looking reclaimed bank a lot of old woodwork. Bright tanks right behind bar and kettle just off to the side...feels like you're in the middle of the action. the menu was pricey and I was a bit disappointed that you could not get a plain old burger. The beer was tasty...and thats what really counts.
