I noticed this place had been added over a year ago, but was only recently in the area to give it a try. From the website, I wasn't expecting much but it turned out to be a pretty good beer place.

The building itself is located on a manmade island in the marina, overlooking boats and Lake Michigan in a way that emulates the east coast better than most in the midwest. It was on the second floor, with old breweriana history photos lining the walls along the stairs. A deck patio door and maitre 'd station are at the top of the stairs, with the bar straight ahead, and a dining area further back with lots of large windows. The vibe is sort of a family oriented boathouse lodge, with a nice view of the lake. The inside bar was fairly ho-hum and typical, next time i'd sit outside.

At the bar I was the only patron, but was assured by the host a bartender would be there. After 5 minutes or so, someone came along and eventually poured a beer. At first glance, the drafts didn't seem that great, but there were a few hidden gems, like Big Bad Baptist, Public Craft, and Founders Double Trouble. Being the dog days of August, I went with a Yokel first. The bottle list had mostly craft staples, when I asked about Door County beers, the bartender AJ offered some off the menu bottles, which was cool. This guy was friendly and great to talk to about the local scene, music, and beer.

Food was decent, I had a brisket sandwich that was pretty juicy and a good size. There were BBQ and seafood options, as well as the usual burgers/sandwiches/pub appetizers.

Overall this place was surprisingly decent, and definitely a welcome addition for Racine which seems to lack good beer bars, aside from Toad Hall, and Pepi's (i've heard).
