The best feature of this place is that they specialize in IPA's. They currently have a whopping five of them online, including a cask version of the Scarlet Fire, which I am enjoying as I post this. Speaking of the Scarlet Fire, it purveys sharp floral bitterness, an excellent take on the West Coast IPA. I pick up grassy notes and somewhat of a lemony finish. I would highly recommend this place, but be sure to eat lunch or dinner before arriving. Its a quasi college bar (adjacent to the U of W campus), and their menu consists of....pizza, pizza, and oh, some pizza.

For what it is, it’s great. Brewpub on a College Ave, usually has a decent selection, some really good special beers too, great food. I really enjoy it. My personal favorite bar on the Ave, I’m always convincing my friends to go here instead of Finn’s.

Pommes frites go great with most any beer. Couple that with great sauces and you cannot go wrong. My lady and I tried all 3 IPA's and the Rye beer on tap and were delighted considering how many smaller breweries skimp on hops and make a sub-par IPA. Staff was quite friendly and outgoing. Got the wrong sauce from what I ordered and still was satisfied. Grabbed a bottle to go for a reasonable price.

I stopped in here for the first time the other day—dragged my wife and daughter along to try out Whiny the Complainer.
First, I was glad I could bring in the family during the day.
It's a large space with nice seating, people on computers, drinking beer, snacking on food.
Several of their own beers on tap, sadly only had time to try one.
Were there during happy hour where pints are $1 off and there's a small happy hour food menu. We had basic nachos and I ruined my palate. Pizza looked to be the main menu item.
Not a bad place to get a couple beers, study, surf the internet, read a book, eat a pizza...all at once. Also didn't feel too old, despite its location—might've been because we were there at 4 o'clock in the afternoon.
