Hipster Heaven.

Or at least it was, about 5 years ago or so. Why? Because the place has character. Housed in a bowling alley (and bowling, by the way, has become cool again too), this place has a lot of charm. When you're at the bar, you will most likely have to sit at one of the little tables alongside the windows or sit at the bar. There is a lot of soft, dramatic lighting and wood paneling.

The service is great. Every time I've been here I've had a friendly server who was very accomodating.

The tap lines are pretty impressive (especially for a bowling alley). There are at least 20 different beers on tap, and most of the time, you can get at least one or two rarities. All of the time, they support local domestic microbreweries, and it's almost certain you will find Summit, James Page, Bell's, etc... in addition to some smaller breweries as well. There are also some Belgian style beers in bottles.

Although the selection is not that impressive, it is constantly rotating. Every couple of months, a couple new beers will rotate through.

Definitely give this place a shot. You'll be charmed by it.

This is an old 1940's bowling alley and the newest bowling balls probably date from the 1950s. Until 1993 when the current owner took over they served 3.2 beer and bar pizza. She recreated it with a bistro type kitchen not much bigger than a coat closet, a decent menu and a craft beer list. Their list has slipped over the past year but they still offer up a reasonable selection of local and regional craft beer on tap. Food is decent, atmosphere good.
