3.05/5  rDev -10.8%
vibe: 2.5 | quality: 3 | service: 3 | selection: 3 | food: 4

Atmosphere: Somewhat small, and usually packed. Backroom for non-smokers and the front for the others. If you're a smoker, no booths for you. Usually quite busy and loud, and not someplace you're going to be able to carry a conversation, especially during weekend nights. They open up the back patio during the summers.

Quality: I have been frequenting this brewpub since it's opening, and I'd have to say (even though I'm acquaintances with the brewmeister), that as of recently the beers have taken a hit in quality. Of note, the stout (which used to be excellent) is no longer on nitro-tap as of this review. See the brew reviews for more detail.

Service: Usually pretty good. The wait staff is not very knowledgable about the beer, however.

Selection: Usually 5 staple brews on tap with 2 seasonals.

Food: Excellent. Do try the cherry-smoked sausage in Red Ale sauerkraut with sweet potatoes. Prices are decent (from $8-15) for dinner and less for lunch.
