From the outside it doesn't look like much, but it has a nice cozy feel. The bar can get very crowded and it can get hard to get a beer. Theres a few small tables around, but the cool part is the upstairs. More chairs, and a few big fluffy couches. They also have a balcony on the 2nd floor, with park style bench tables. They also have another serving station on the top, but with a small tap selection.

All the beers I have had there have been good, no flaws or dirty lines. They do have a nice selection, but its very disappointing when the beer you want is sold out. Food also looks unimpressive. Saw some very plain cheese plates, and bare sandwiches.
It is a very good bar, but come early and don't expect to get good food here. There's a lot of ample parking nearby so no parking woes here.

Fantastic place. Great old pub feel. Wood, wood, wood, wood. Taps, copper, beer garden and an upstairs lounge style laid back area. It's a great place. I don't smoke cigars, but they have them. The ladies behind the bar were great. Christine and Whitney... Thanks.

This place is absolutely a craft beer lover's dream come true. The atmosphere is amazing, dark lighting, dark lacquered wood, warm and lively company downstairs and quieter more relaxed atmosphere upstairs with armchairs and couches. The outside area with the overlooking loft effectively gives you 4 different locations you can sit down and drink at and I find myself moving around from beer to beer. The staff is SO knowledgeable and friendly, they will gladly let you sample any beer you like or help you choose a brew based on what you like. The selection is amazing, I've always been extremely impressed with what they have to offer, both on tap and in bottles. The food I gave a medium rating simply because they only really serve a small numbers of snack / appetizer items, its just not a food kind of bar. HIGHLY recommend this one to anyone in the area!!!!
