Came over to check this place out after having dinner and a flight over at BJ's. Two of the cooler things here: The total black painted/wood bar area, very traditional looking. The other cool thing: Some super retro Wolfpack stuff. I tell you what: While most of Reno are fair weather fans, and even then, carry a lot of resentment towards a university because they can't get a meager job and didn't make it through college, its nice to see a place like this be proud to display some awesome and irreplacable history.

Quality is decent, we shared an Arrogant Bastard ale. The place appeals to more traditional type English beer drinkers based on the selection. Other than ABA, not really anything hoppy (well that and SNPA) on the tap list, I believe 20-24 taps, some local stuff from the High Sierra Brewery, would be nice to see some 50/50, Silver Peak, even BJ's from next door up in here.

Service was friendly and helpful. Restaurant looks cool, food smelled good, hostess was this cute lil shorty.

This place has some promise on the South End of Reno. To make it even better, they should get some of the bottles like Craft pulls in via Shelton Bros and reach out to the other (and better) local breweries. They have the infrastructure, employees and location, now, to just stock it with some gems.
