Visited with my wife at lunch time December 22. Sat in the bar area at one of the high tables. I love all the somewhat sarcastic beer memorabilia hanging on the walls - arguably the best brewery in the world and they have beer signs for common swill beers like Hamms and Jax everwhere you look.
Started off with a flight of Belgiums all of which were outstanding. My wife is a life long beer hater and she was amazed by the quality as well. As we rated our choices the waiter was giving her a bad time for giving out "B's", but that's high praise from someone who rarely gives any beer better than a "D". Had a very nice plate of meats, cheeses, olives, etc and later on some rather slow arriving pliny bites. Waiter apologized for the wait and actually comped me a pint of Pliny the Elder! People watching is great with a steady stream of locals arriving to get their growlers filled.
Overall a very enjoyable afternoon and relatively inexpensive. The Belgian flight (think it was 10 two oz samples), four pints on tap, a souvenir glass, the meat & cheese tray, the pliny bites, and three bottles of Pliny to go was only $62!
