First time in Ft. Worth, so I made it into the top rated beer bar in Ft. Worth.

Atmosphere - It's a pretty large place with a good amount of booths, adequate seating at the bar, and some additional tables both in the back and in a side room. It's a clean, comfortable place to eat and drink.

Quality - They serve both quality beer and quality food.

Service - Both nights I stopped in I sat in different places. The bartender was conversational and helpful about the menu. The waitress was also the same way, so I didn't prefer either location as it was a positive experience in both.

Selection - They have a good 25-30 or so drafts nicely sectioned into beer style, and they have a pretty good bottle selection as well. It'd be pretty hard for you not to find something you'd like, plus they had just finished a barleywine tap takeover, so they had a great selection of that style when I was here.

Food - I ate the 2nd night I was here, and I greatly enjoyed the food. They offered up a very good variety of mostly standard bar food, and numerous dishes had a fairly unique twist on it. I would definitely eat here again.

Value - Good value.

Overall this was a great experience. I had good beers, good food, and was impressed with the service. Recommended!

Great service and good food. I liked the fact that they had a build your own flight sampler, that's always good in my books. Unfortunately, they did not have very many local beers on tap and for the sampler, the beers had to be on draft. The beer menu seemed kind of cheap and didn't really provide a good definition of the beers, so you really need your beers when you go in here. They were out of some of the beers that I ordered, so I had to choose others. It was a good place to visit, but not a place that I would go to all the time.

Went for the beer selection and stayed for the beer selection. Within walking distance to downtown, so we didn't have to drive. The selection was great with only one of my selections "out of stock". My service was good and watching the bar tender, he knew his job. My food was ok, but could have been influenced by the beer. Just a nice place to have a few beers on a hot day.

i liked the old location, but the new one is growing on me

the patio at the new location really is what makes it though

service is pretty good but sometimes dependent on the waitress you get. some are extremely knowledgeable on the beers while some have no clue

food is pretty good, but not phenomenal

beer selection is great can be overly pricey for some of the large formats
