3.4/5  rDev -10.5%

A nice place to hang out for an evening. It's an old gas station they have turned into a brew pub, so points there.

Service was adequate, out waitress got distracted by the table of guys next to us and hung out with them a while making us wait.

There is a lot of selection in terms of styles, so many they couldn't really do a sample, there had to be about 15+ styles going. I took a peak at the brewing area, and they seem to be running small batches, maybe 15 gallon runs. I still worry about freshness with so many things running, but didn't note any problems on the beers I tasted.

Food I had was pretty good. I needed some green chile and their chile fries were tasty even if they caused my doctor some heartburn.

Beers were bland I'm sorry to say. They all seemed aimed toward the masses. I'd recommend to the brewers to take some risks.

Bottom line: Decent tap lineup, mediocre brewed beer, typical bar food, and a nice atmosphere.

1. Taps: They have a wall full of taps behind the bar area, which is nice. Less nice is they don't have a list so you have to constantly ask the bartender to clarify (unless you're some kind of tap savant, I guess). I didn't even know they had taps until I'd been 4-5 times, because they only give you a list of the beers they brew and it's a big place so you're not always in eyeshot of the bar.

2. Brewed beer: When you sit down they give you a list of their brewed beer, arranged by color from lightest to darkest. Of the 18 or so on the list, I've probably tried 10 and haven't been impressed with any of them. I keep thinking I'll find a style they do well, but I've been disappointed each time.

3. Food: Typical bar fare. Burgers, fries, wings, sandwiches, etc. I think they have a salad or two if you want something lighter.

4. Atmosphere: This is why I've been back so many times. They have a large outdoor area that fills up quickly in the summer, in addition to their large inside seating area. Lots of long tables to accommodate groups (most of the times I've been there have been for work going-aways) so you can cram in a lot of people. Service is generally good except when they're super busy.

Overall it's not bad but I generally only go there when someone at work is leaving.
