The food is really good, the service is good (I don't go there during crowded hours), and the beer selection is kind of a joke. about 100 taps and maybe 5 I'd like to order. You can tell they just buy a high quantity of less than par craft beer as most of their customers are new to the craft scene so they get away with it.

The standard by which all other restaurants are judged with respect to Craft beer selection. They have lots of taps and bottles. They constantly rotate out new selections for their Beer Knurds (the people who try different beers every time and when they get to 100 they get a plate on the wall).
As a craft beer advocate, I am glad that this location exists to help expose those new to the craft beer world about the variety of options.
The menu is limited to bar foods plus some German influenced items (pretzels and sausages). I would prefer to have more of a 50/50 bar/restaurant mix. This place is definitely a bar first and restaurant second. The servers are typically beautiful women with moderate to high beer knowledge in short skirts.
