Fun place with many world class beers. Always cool music and nice people to talk to. Great food and a nice atmosphere.

This place is a dive with a lot of character... I like it.

The beer that's on tap is great... but you'll be lucky to try more than 4 of their brews at a time, they just go through it so quick... but there are usually one or two guest taps. I'd obviously like to see a bigger tap list, but the beer is good enough it wont stop me from going back.

Food is good, but simple. I recommend the mother cluker or the cuban, but the menu was different both times I was there, and it will likely be different when you go. You order at a counter, and if it isn't crowded they'll bring you your food... if it's a sh*t show of a release... you need to keep an eye on the time and head back to the counter to get your food.

This place isn't perfect, but that's why I like it... oozing character... and as far as Gary goes, it really isnt in a bad part of town (But don't be surprised if you drive right past it your first time).

Came for a Saturday morning release. Friendly folks everywhere and the staff moved the line through quick.
You must try Bitches Bank and Cone Crusher.

Never mind my not so great review, if you're in the area you should still go to this place if only for the beer, which is crazy good. Service was pretty bad, though the bartender was nice. Don't know about the food because they closed the kitchen early so the cook could drink at the bar (which sucked because I was starving), but the bartender was kind enough to eat a sandwich in front of me that looked pretty good. The vibe is about what you'd expect from the locale. The beer selection is very very limited, but what is there is worth going for. I would drink that beer in a barn or under a tree at a roadside stand.
