A friend and I went there and there was a wait to get in. Being the new hot spot in town we waited 20 minutes to get in to the bar. The wait for a table was over a hour. Got to the bar and saw they had tons and tons of beer. My friend and I got up to the bar and where going to sample some new brews we have never tasted. After another thirty minutes of waiting to order, the bar tender did not even acknowledge us. So we said screw this place and we went across the street to Shakespeare's. Too bad, I really want to like this place but way too busy to enjoy it. I should rate it lower. But they have the best selection of beers in Kalamazoo just be prepared to wait and wait and wait.

While cool in theory, the changing beer prices are actually pretty annoying. I don't like anything which makes me want to wait to order a beer. Food was good, tasty sandwich and exceptionally good friends. Service was weirdly friendly (my waitress's hard core eye contact and smile is still freaking me out a bit). That said, the beer selection was good enough that I'd definitely go back (and it's not like Kzoo is hurting for options).
