I just noticed Whistle Stop here and thought I would lay down a quick review. I've been here a couple times and only live a few blocks away. First, let me state my disclaimer. In my opinion, this is not a beer-centered bar. I've been before when they have poured Russian River IPA and other great craft brew, but I would not come here if I was looking for great beer. With Hamilton's and others so close by, I don't see the point.

Anyways, I found much of the grand experience(s) average. Just another bar. A bit hip for my Friday/Saturday nights. All kinds of people visit this place and if you're coming to find great beer or help advocate this beverage we all love, just skip and go to Hamilton's.

Again, nothing personal, just not a place I'd go to find a great beer.
