Oh wow, what a beer bar.
On the small side, no a/c, and overall very unpretentious, this place is pretty much exactly what I hope to find in a beer bar.
Incredible selection of over 60 taps and not a dog in the bunch. I was lucky and although I visited during one of their periodic 'mini-fests' (this was an IPA fest were all of the taps had been switched over to IPA's), it was a Sunday afternoon and I didn't have trouble finding a place to sit. I chose the bar where the service was wonderful and got to talk with a few of the 'regulars', giving the place a 'Cheers" type feel.
Typical bar type food menu which I didn't try but I heard that the Fish 'n Chips are a specialty and to die for.
Besides serving beer in pints, they also serve it in 7 oz 'tasters' (a Chimay goblet) for $2 ea. If you plan on sampling a number of beers, I find this is the way to go.
The small bar area has 3 large TV's showing sports, only about 8 stools at the bar, and a half dozen or more small tables for gathering. There is also an ample outdoor eating patio where you can smoke if so inclined.
Bring change with you for the parking meters for street parking or use the public parking garage a half block farther down.
