vibe: 4.5 | quality: 4 | service: 4.25 | selection: 4.75 | $$$

Atmosphere: Bar stools predominate the entire place, with some booths around the walls. Behind the bar is a semi-private area that can be rented out for parties and whatnot. Large TVs behind the bars, so you don't always have to see them if you don't want. There's also a stage behind the bar too, where local musicians roll in on occasion.

Quality: Fresh beers served in the proper glassware every time. Pours range from 12oz to 16oz.

Service: Friendly wait staff, though not always the most educated on the beer they're serving. Bar tenders can generally shoot the shit about anything on tap or in the large coolers behind the bar containing hundreds of bottles of different beers organized by country and style.

Selection: Huge wall of taps of a variety of styles, all craft (even to the point that they rarely serve Sierra Nevada, Sam Adams, New Belgium, or other "macro" craft options). Plenty of taps form local Indiana breweries, including FFF whenever they can get it. Some beers seem to fly (especially Zombie Dust when they have it), while others seem to take much longer to disappear. Everyone will like at least one beer on tap. If not, there are hundreds of bottles also available for purchase.

Food: They have a food menu now, but I never tried anything from it.

Value: Expensive bar for Bloomington, IN. Most pours are well over $5, with an average price likely over $6. Come here for a beer or two in celebration, but don't plan to spend the night unless you're loaded.
