Came here with Kzoobrew while visiting Michigan for the CBS release.

Went in at I believe around six o’clock and got a couple seats at the bar. It was about half full, but filled up during our stay. A very innovative and neat idea on how the bar works. The “beer exchange” is directly related to what people are ordering and changes every fifteen minutes and every now and then there is a “crash” where you can get beers for cheaper.

There was a decent selection there. I was DD for the night so I only got a FBS but it was fantastic as always. The bartender was great. We all were BS’in with her the whole night. We were right by the kitchen so I was also able to bug a few of the waitresses who were pretty cute and were good fun.

The quality was nice too. Located in a nice looking building, and the place itself looked brand new. The night was an enjoyable experience and I will for sure be back here in the future.
