This place was only a few minutes away from our hotel and was kinda near the downtown area. Pretty easy to get too, but the parking was pretty limited to side streets. Nice open veranda, and the inside was very large with high ceilings. We decided to sit at the bar. Our waitress was very friendly, as was the gentleman from Ohio who sat next to us. The tap selection was huge, having probably 25 taps of their own brews and maybe 5 more of some staples. I absolutely loved their Scottish ale...probably one of the best I've ever had. Huge malt body, perfect carbonation, well balanced sweetness finished off with a smoky peatiness. Loved it. The Belgian Pale was sour and quite off. The Apricot Pale Ale was pretty refreshing and tasted well brewed. The Imperial stout was thin bodied for the style and wasn't imperial by any stretch of the imagination, although it was tasty(It was 8.0% ABV). The hefe-weizen was pretty good, but poured out like as cloudy as glue. We sent it back...way too yeasty. We had the green chile cheese fries which were OK, but not as exceptional as the bartender would have us believe. The wings were very good, but a little hot for my taste coupled with the fries. Service was very good, but the prices were a little goofy. I paid $2.75 for each "1/2 pint", but these pours were 6oz, at tops. Kinda a rip-off. They don't have a sampler tray, but they will provide limited free samples, which equates to a champagne glass with a 1/2 ounce sip of beer. Even at happy hour, the beer was $3.75 a pint, which is regular price at every other brewpub I've been to. We had 5 "1/2 pints", 2 pints, an order of wings (about 8-9), and fries and it came to $31 before tip, which is pretty ridiculous, IMO. As I was going to the restrooms, I got a look at the brewery. They had some bins of malt nearby, so with the approval of a staff member, I grabbed and handful of crystal 40 to chew on. Mmmm. Still, the beer was great, and I would go here at happy hour to have a few pints.
