A: The location was very cool, an old building with a really interesting bar, very old wood work. I would have liked to explore a bit more to see the brewing side of things and the other floors, but we were sat next to the original brewing equipment and a scale which was entertaining.
Q: Quality of everything was above average, proper glassware for the beers were given. No problems with ordering. solid.
S: There was about an hour and a half wait on a Saturday evening (kind of expected it would be busy) so after putting our name on the list and awaiting a call we checked out the gift shop and bought a few things (a sweet English style pint glass and a tulip). With 30 mins left we grabbed our first beer at the bar, only a short wait and with my AHA membership they they bought my first pint! Finally after the beers were gone our table was ready. The waitress was friendly and helpful, but a tad slow (not her fault just a busy night) In all the service we received was above average.
S/F: The selection of beers was solid, I got a German Alt (the cellar dweller), a Cali Common (Gold Rush) and the Dortmunder Gold, while the lady had an Elliot Ness and a Nosferatu (all fresh as expected). The food selection was mixed with traditional pub fare (Burgers, sandwiches, pizza) but also had a few interesting entries that I'd go back for (ribs, fish fry, etc). I ended up going with an amazing Old Word Burger with their homemade BBQ sauce and haystack fries on top and a pretzel bun (Stellar, but hard to eat it was so large)
V: Counting the free beer I got with my AHA We didn't spend more than $50 which is an awesome deal
