Excellent beer selection for Chesapeake! By far the best I have found in the area. If you like your beer with flavor and some good food to go with it, stop by here, you are sure to be pleased. Ask for Foster if you want to talk beer, he is the owner and seems to always be game for a chat about some brews.

Typical restaurant in a strip mall vibe. But very nice, clean and open inside. Smallish bar with some really great taps that rotate quickly. They'll kick something and put something brand new on right away after a quick line flush. Definitely don't get the feeling beer sits here long.

Food is great, filling, oily italian pizza shop - great for having with beer.

Ynot Pizza for craft beer? I was shocked at the draft list until I saw the empty bottles on the shelf and found out the manager was a craft beer fan. Bottles of Chocolate Rain and others. And they have the best pepperoni pizza.

This isn't a bad place to go but not one worth checking out unless you happen to be a tourist who for some reason went to Greenbrier mall or a local who...well, is stuck in that area as well (for me, it took longer to drive here than anywhere in VA Beach or Ghent so really no point). The food is alright, at best, but overpriced and quite frankly there are many better pizza places around the 757 than this place. Went on a Friday afternoon at 3PM and the place was empty and still waited a few minutes for a waitress and about 30 for our food. But as far as the beer it's a mixed bag. They only have seven taps, a few regular bottles and a limited bottle selection. Worse, a draft beer was $7 and the limited bottle were between $15 and $25. That being said, if you're going to come here rest assured at least the choices at your disposal are worth the stop. On my visit they had Stone Grapefruit and Go to IPA on tap, as well as Great Divide Yeti (the Espresso aged) and limited bottles included Nectar Imperial Stout and Walker 17th Anniversary. They rotate the taps and guess they get really good, hard to find beers and don't waste time with bottle of stuff at the grocery store next door. So it wasn't a bad experience but as stated just not worth the drive unless you're close and want a snack and a good beer.

Food is delicious, I've had everything from Pizza to Sandwiches to Salads have all been better than average. They always have something exciting on tap, most recently they had Goose Island Night Stalker and Weyerbacher Insanity, but I've had Founders Breakfast Stout there, Stone Enjoy By, Two Hearted, Racer 5 and a host of other stellar beers. Such a great place to have dinner.

It does look as though they have got rid of their extensive bottle selection they once had, I'll keep checking and if that changes I will update this.

Only down side is their prices are a little high on pretty much everything outside of their desserts.

Very knowledgeable and attentive bar tender. 8 taps included Bell's Two Hearted, Founders Centennial, Firestone Double Jack, Weyerbacher Insanity, Allagash White, Williamsburg Alewerks Bourbon Barrel Porter, and 2 I don't recall. Food was good, just not as great as the beer selection - had the chicken stromboli. The best draft beers I've found in Chesapeake.
