well. i'm glad i went. one of those places i prolly have been dreaming of since i was a wee lad. like that barbie jeep i wanted. but then you get it, a 30 something 190 pound man in a pink plastic jeep is as fun as an arcade with a bunch of grand beer.

nothing wrong with the grand beer, mind you. nothing at all wrong there. don't rightly recall how many taps but i looked at the list for about 15 minutes before i could decide. the barkeep let me try a few before i got to my final choice. so service was good, too (although their dog tried to bite me, it was a very small dog though).

but there was something off putting to me about high quality beer bar inside a former garage (service station) with a bunch of vintage video games about. maybe i'm getting old.

the beer is good and if you dig asteroids this is yer joint.

Came here once just for the video games. Just as well, because in my hour and a half I don't think I spoke to anyone who worked here.

The video games are worth a separate review, but they're the real draw.

Glancing up occasionally at the beer list it seemed great, lots of weird, offbeat choices. Too bad I never got the inclination to approach what seemed like chilly staff.

I'd go back here if I was with a group.

The selection is fantastic here. I never tried the cocktails or food (do they really serve food? Maybe, but I never noticed.) But the beers are great, for a decent price. And of course the retro games and atmosphere are fun. Just beware of how crowded it gets on weekends.
