Come here semi often after grad seminars, the atmosphere is upscale dive, collegiate, and brewpub rolled into one. The decor reflects a nostalgic sensibility, empty beer bottles of varying quality (macro and micro) line the upper wall ledge- I think I even saw a New Glarus Belgian Red bottle. Service can be spotty, depending on the relative position within the academic quarter, day of visit (Wednesday vs Friday), and time of day. People who work here seem very friendly albeit busy, but that is t counted against them. Food is ordered at a separate window and is charged on a separate tab. Taps are varied, they reflect the style de jour. On tap the most recent visit- bond, pale, coal porter, saison, IPA, oatmeal stout, RIS, lager. 22oz bottles are also available for sale, and types are dependent on what has been bottled recently by the staff. Food is good, above average pub fare, but no fried food. I recommend the pulled pork sandwich or the cascade. Pizzas are good as well.
Great place to do lunch or early dinner; average tab for a meal and 4 drinks- $22.

Prices are OK. Food is fine (not great, not bad). Beer is good to quite good. Service...there isn't service. They have a counter you can walk to for food orders, and you can walk to the bar for drinks. Which is fine.
We tried every beer they had on tap; several solid IPAs and their nice wheatwine, as well as a couple pales and a porter. I don't make it here often just because it's off my beaten path.

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.
