Wow! That's all I can say.
This place is nothing special in terms of atmosphere, but my kind of place. they have recently upgraded their beer offerings DRAMATICALLY! Very pleasant bar area...large. I had lunch here on a Friday and the bar was pretty crowded.

They claim to now have 25 beers on draft...I had a 5 beer 7 oz sampler of Ithaca Cascazilla, Terrapin Hopsecutioner, Merry Monk's Ale, Evil Genius Pure Evil and Brawler Pugilist. Pretty impressive breadth of offering...and they also have today Reverhosrse Belgian Freeze, Rogue Double Chocoate Stout, Humdinger Pils, etc.

After the sampler, I switched to the Teiver Horse Belgian Freeze to have with lunch. Great beer. Had a house salad, and a special of the day, smoked mozzarella and roasted red pepper ravioli. Food was very good.

This is a new find!

SSG has an excellent selection with a good mix of local brews, bigger name craft beers, and interesting one offs/special beers on draft. Taps are constantly rotating, so even regulars will have something new to try each time. They claim to have the largest tap selection in the county which may very well be the case. Prices per pint are reasonable given the breadth of selection. I was told recently they no longer do sampler flights, but if you ask for a sample the bartenders are accommodating. Staff is very attentive and friendly. The food is great. If you want bang for your buck you can't go wrong with all you can eat wings or prime rib special. I haven't found another place in the area with this combination of beers, food, and friendliness. Great place.

I had been to this place years ago with someone I used to work with, that was long before their new beer list which I discovered on so I knew I had to check it out again.
The place opens at 11am during week days which I like because then places are quieter.
I give them credit, it's a neighborhood joint that is in a town with not too much else to offer(sorry) and to have a beer list like theirs is making a statement.
Had lunch the second time in, it was OK and the beer prices are on par with other craft draft establishments. Both times there I had a beer that was suppose to be in a 10oz mug(8% and over)given to me in a pint glass, so that is a plus too.
I'm giving the atmosphere rating a perfect because of the bar staff and if you check out their pictures on their website site remember this, those pictures don't do them justice.
