The best single beer brewed in the state, the inebriator stout, a Russian Imperial, that was a meal in itself. Not only the locals did not know of this beer, the youngins of the local beer scene know this place as a steak house, not the quality of their offerings. The Inebriator was still served a bit on the cool side, and it was worth hanging out outside until it came to room temperature, further I must have had every patron at the bar buying in. Note this: Happy hour=$2 pints, for a great RIS that was worth the price of admission. And its great incentive to try everything else, not that many other beers on.

Wow. I don't even know where to begin. This is one seriously down-home place - shabby furniture, sawdust on the floor, wait staff in western-wear, a big tank of rattlesnakes in the back, and the walls festooned with business cards and discarded ties from customers. The food? Simple, but adequate. The steaks are good, the salads are old-fashioned iceberg and cheap dressing jobbies. The prices for the steaks are dismayingly high considering the quality, though the other dishes and side dishes didn't seem excessive.

But worst of all, at least from BA perspective, the house-made beer was somewhere between mediocre and awful. I had a Red Ale that had sweet, malty character that would not do credit to a barely experienced extract homebrewer. It was so bad, in fact, that I wouldn't bring myself to try another variety - a first for me, as far as I can recall. I will give it the benefit of the doubt on the other beers, but I won't be going back to try.

Stopped in here on a Saturday night after Christmas and it was not to busy. We were seated immediately. The place has ties hanging from the ceiling(apparently if you wear a tie they cut if off and hang it). Lots of sawdust on the floor and tables were like picnic tables. Country music and some classic rock playing over the speakers. I ordered ribs and steak which was good but nothing superb. My wife ordered the salmon and thats where it wet wrong. As she was eating a bug popped out. Yup, live bug. We sent the food back and had it replaced with something else. Needless to say I was not impressed by that, the beer ranged from average to terrible. This place was really hyped up it ifeel very short in my book.

The drive to this place is easy, minus all the road construction going on in the area. You will see a very touristy building layed out like a small Cowboy village. Upon entering it is an old looking building with a jewelry shop selling southwestern jewelry right past the hostess station. You will also see thousands of business cards and half cut ties adorning the walls. I have seen this place on TV, if you arrive wearing a tie it is cut when you sit down. Who would show up to this place in a suit and tie is beyond me.

We were seated on picnic style tables with loads of sawdust on the floor. All the servers were dressed as cowboys. Service was friendly but very slow at times. There was a single guitarist playing along with some synths and drum machines for the live music.

The beer selection was pretty decent as there was a Blonde, Gold, Pale Ale, Porter, Stout, Hefeweizen, Mandarin Hefe, Red Ale, and Brown Ale. Beers ranged from so-so to good. The Brown ale was definitely off, but others were fresh.

The steaks were good, chicken good, but the ribs and baked beans were average. Very small menu of items to select from.

Is this a place I would recommend to a fellow BA ? Maybe, maybe not. If you have time to try it and you are close give a shot.

You will feel like you are driving into the desert, as the place is kind of out there. But I bet there is some great hiking near by.

Atmosphere - More Western Saloon, kitchy steakhouse feel than a bar or brewpub, as the bar area seats six. One of those Western themed steakhouses that cuts off the tie of anybody that wears one in and nails it to the roof. Wait staff walking around with badges and Coyboy hats on, dressed-up like at law officer from a 50's western.

Service - Friendly, quick, and polite.

Selection - Good with several styles to choose from. I had the Manadarin Hefe and the Festive Ale, their winter seasonal hold over.

Food - Didn't try it, because I wanted a snack before going somewhere else and the smallest thing on the menu would have been a half order of ribs dinner. No appetizers or small sandwiches. Pretty much ribs and steaks.
