Made a quick stop for a beer on our way from Bell's to Dark Horse in preparation for 4 Elf 2012.
The bar and restaurant were fairly busy. Most of the tables were occupied. It had a pizza type smell in the dining room. Appears to me to be an older place, with a long bar that kind of slithers the length of the dining room, with booths behind and small tables behind it. They have about 8-10 beers on tap. The bar is a formica counter top, maybe something you'd see in a trailer or mobile home from 1978 or so.
They did not have the BBBW or BB Imperial Stout in bottles, which was part of the reason why we stopped, hoping to score a couple bottles of each. We had a quick beer on tap, and decided to press on. The bartender wasn't unfriendly, but you could tell he was busy and didn't really pay us any attention, until we started talking about the bottles of BA stuff they didn't have. He explained to us they were having some label issues, but they had the XV and 15 for sale...I had heard of the beers, but hadn't been able to try them, so we bought two of each, and he threw in a glass for us being beer geeks and travelling from the U.P. to stop at their place. I appreciated that.
Overall, it was a great experience. I'd like to go back sometime and chill out and have some lunch, but the first stop was positive enough for me to stop and try some food and enjoy this place again.
