The Ale House has a decent selection of brews although they focus upon their own brews and offer a larger selection of bottled beers, especially 22 oz varieties than drafts from other brewers. I've been quite a few times and the food has been mostly excellent as far as entrees and sandwiches were concerned, although the duck confit grilled cheese was fairly bland. Parking can be a PITA but valet service is available.. Waits can extend to an hour on busy nights but the staff is very pleasant. Samples are not available any longer but 5oz tasters can be purchased. The acoustics are amazing, even on the most crowded nights, normal conversations are easily held without raising voices making the experience most pleasant.
