This place has a large bar and dining are with large spacious rooms for both activities. It was nice and cozy inside though. Cool beer inspired decorations include 100s of beer bottle lineing some of the walls. There was also some music inspired artwork that was very nice.
I tried their st. Charles porter and I loved it so much I got a grolwer of it too go. They had 6 taps available with the porter, a pale ale, a kolsch, a brown ale an irish stout and a marris otter pale ale. I only tried the one because I had a long drive ahead after that. The beer was excellent though.
Service was equally great and attentive and they even let me walk through the brewery which was small but very interesting and I could smell something fermenting. Overall this place is an awesome addition to a town with a good nightlife.
Oh I almost forgot. I enjoyed the food as well. I had the chicken entree with the black beans and rice pilaf.

They don't have much on the website, so I don't know much about the place, but I believe that homebrew author Dave Miller is involved somehow. Located in an old brick building, it is fairly unassuming from the outside. As we pulled up a whole busload of Japanese tourists was decamping. Upon entering from the bright southern sun outdoors, it is shockingly dark and almost cave-like. Brewing equipment lies to the left of the entrance, roped off. A bar is straight ahead, with restaurant seating scattered in a few different areas from there. This is a surprisingly large space, and even has what looks like an old library or den area past the bar. There is a large bottle collection up high along the walls of much of the brewpub space, but located almost too high to really see details of.
The beers ranged from a less-than-stellar Octoberfest to a pretty well balanced IPA and a smooth porter. We managed to share the crispy and fresh-made soft pretzels so soak up some of the beer. Overall the place reminded me of one of those late 80's or early 90's brewpubs that mostly went out of business back in the day.

Had dinner and a couple beers here. In the end, the food was better than the beer. APA tasted downright soapy and the others were fine. Not bad, and also not very special.
Typical Microbrew location that seemed to be more corporate in nature. To me, if you are in the area and are not into eating local food... go here. Do not go out of your way to visit this location.
Just didn't see a lot of unique character... Could have been a Bennigan's, Chili's or Ruby Tuesday's.
When I set out to write this, my intention wasn't to pan the place. Upon re-reading this, looks like I might have. But this is what I was thinking when I ponder my visit.

We had picked up a six pack of Adam Bomb at Craft Brewed early in the week and really enjoyed it. Thought we'd stop in and see what else the place had to offer. Uh, sadly the answer was not much.
The place has the feel of a clubby old steakhouse or Italian joint, rather dark and poorly lit. A u-shaped bar on the left of the entry holds about 15 patrons with a dining room on the right. The place has some potential with a makeover with the open space and high ceilings but for now, kind of meh.
Beer selection was rather disappointing too. Four house beers, two specials, a decent rich brown ale and a hoppy pale. Nothing really stood out.
Service was the highlight. The bartender was very nice, gave us the benefit of the American Craft Beer Week special pricing without us knowing about it.
Could be a worthwhile stop but, sadly, isn't.
