On the other side of the tracks and keep going, if you are looking for this place. Not in the cool downtown area like I would like to see. Conical out front tells you where to stop.

Enter pub and find yourself a seat if you can(evenings are busy). Took a spot at the bar and ordered up a sampler set of brews. Golden,Pale,Trippel,IPA,Borbon Stout,Porter and another beligan. Pale better than IPA, Trippel better than Pale, Porter better than Trippel, Stout the best. Overall I thought this was a pretty very good showing for a newish place.

I ordered a pizza, took there word that it was good, I'm a sucker. Maybe next time I will try another dish. I gave food a 2.5 but I think thats a bit unfair since everyone else seemed to enjoy their food.

I really enjoyed the bourbon barrell stout and would have taken some home but at 15 a bomber no thanks.

Visited June 17th, 2007.

Just recently opened, and typical decor for a brewpub. Menu is not extensive, but the fish tacos and sweet potato fries ( included with shrimp appetizer ) were true standouts!

Beer selection is good, with the Trippel and Porter being the best bets, but the IPA, Golden, and Pale Ale lacking in depth and just the basic representation of these styles. The White was dispappointing with too much citrus coming through, and the Stout was "thin".

All in all, a good experience for a new establishment, and although open only 3 weeks, hopefully the beer will improve with time
