vibe: 3.5 | quality: 4 | service: 4 | selection: 4 | $$

Visited 10/29/05: A unique, old wedge shaped building a couple blocks NW of Jacobs field. The atmosphere was somewhat generic reminiscent of TGI Fridays, what do you expect for a chain? The brewerana (sp?) was pretty impressive, lots of neat tid bits that surprised me every now and then. Lots of TVs tuned to every NCAA football games.

Quality of brews seemed good. Had Rodenbach on tap (yum), which was very fresh and right on. The beer coolers were front lit with fluorescent so I had the bartender grab back a few deep.

Service was OK. The bartender's knowledge of the beer was lacking, but he was very accommodating with my geeky requests (grabbing by beers from the back of the cooler).

Selection: I didn't actually count the taps (as there were two separate bars, with a few different beers available at each, but the majority of the beers they shared. I would say there was around a couple dozen different beers on tap. The bottled selection was where I explored the most, being there were several beers I couldn't get in Michigan. Pike's IPA, Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout & IPA, Alagash Grand Cru to name a few - solid selection.

Didn't try the food but ate a few baskets of free popcorn with my mates. Menu looked like traditional chain restaurant food though.

Value was decent. $5 for a 12 oz. Rodenbach on tap in its proprietary glass (which I ended up buying for $3, nice little glass) seemed fair enough to me. $3.50 bottles of (most) micros - not bad at all.

Overall a decent place to sit a try a few beers. Decent tap selection and a very decent bottled selection. Check it out when you’re in town.
