Stop # 225 on my brewery tour of the world.
This was my second visit to the downtown Great Dane over the course of about five years and I realized I did not submit an initial review. Consider this an updated/initial review.
Visited Thursday in early August around 1:00 in the afternoon. Not much of a crowd and I sat at the bar.
Ordered samples of...
Tri pepper pilsner (three spicy peppers - nice)
Hop jack pale
Czech pils - nice
Beer engine IPA
Firkin scotch ale
I had the seared ahi tuna which was ok for bar standards.
Young female bartender was nice and we chatted a bit about her new interest in sour beers.
As far as brewpubs in historic buildings goes, this one is among the finest I've been to. Very well run with quality beer.
