Housed in two different store fronts just off of the main Church Street Market, the interior is fairly unassuming with the brick walls, wood bar and tables with minimal decor on the walls. The brick oven and prep kitchen are exposed in the main dinning room, while the front (right hand side) room houses a decently sized bar with some long tables in the rear and small tables in the front with a decent sized standing table towards the bar, filled mostly with those waiting for tables. Crowd is lively during dinner in both the bar and restaurant.
The brews are ample and cover many styles for a brewpub, none were overly ambitious with many being lower in gravity than the style dictates, but not quite "Zero". A few guest selections from local brewers keep the mix interesting.
The star is the food. Despite the small menu, they have some of the most delicious flatbreads around. Definitely go for the minimalist options, as they really allow the locally sourced and high end ingredients to shine. We sampled three varieties of flatbreads during our visit. Service was quite impersonal but adequate.
Overall, come for the food and you won't be disappointed. Throw in the beer and you have a fantastic destination.

This was stop #9 for my wife and I on a 9-day East Coast pub crawl and a family visit. The brewery is located in a storefront setting in the busy downtown area. It appears that there is an outdoor eating area in an open space next to the building. (We visited the pub on the day that they closed the street in front in order to have a 10th Anniversary celebration, and the place was packed inside, on the patio and in the street.)
We stopped here to try their beers, and we also ordered a snack to go along. There were 14 beers available, but since this brewery did not offer a sampler flight we did our best to evaluate their beers by ordering 4 pints. Each of them was brewed to style, and each had characteristics that exceeded the style slightly so that overall we scored our 4 beers at a B-minus grade. The Conehead Wheat IPA was the notable one of our selections.
The pizzas that we saw being delivered to adjacent tables looked and smelled good, and our bread sticks that we ate were very tasty. However, this review does not include a score for this category.
The descriptions of many of the other beers sounded tempting, and we would have enjoyed tasting them is samplers were available. But we know our limits, and it had been a long day. We’ll come back here to try some of the other beers if we’re ever back this way again.
