We arrived to an unforseen wonderfulness. Monday night is all-night happy hour. And we were immediately teleported to a very happy land indeed, a land where all beers were only $2.00 each and even our meals were reduced in price.
The atmosphere can't be beat for a brew pub. Staff was super friendly and attentive without being pushy. They would just glide by so you could stop them if needed, and occasionally check in on us. Very good bbq, and on occasion a whiff of hickory smoke would enter the bar area. Since the bar was otherwise smokeless, I assumed that they were just opening a window, door or vent and bringing in the smoke to remind us that they really were smoking it all there. Pretty cool though since it wasn't enough to actually make us smell like the bbq, or to interfere with the food and beer.
The beer was very good. The vanilla porter was very vanilla, but I still really liked it.
The oatmeal stout was a very rich choco-coffee thing which was exceedingly enjoyable.
The 471 IPA smells big, pretty balanced (in the way an IPA is balanced). Lots of stuff going on but a singular bitter note stands out for the length of the drink. A very good double IPA. I suppose I should have grabbed some to go.
Well, I guess I will have to stop back next time. Nice!
