Come here for the food. The beer selection, while unique, is limited. As of the date of this review, they currently had eight selections of beer on tap (Peroni lager, Bell's two-hearted, Miller lite, New Belgium Fat Tire, and Sierra Nevada pale ale, Lost Rhino Blonde Ale) along with ten different beers from the bottle (a few bottles of bells, New Belgium 1554, Weihenstephaner Hefeweisbier, Sierra Nevada Celebration and Flying Dog K9 Cruiser to name a few).

The available beer selection pairs best with vegetable based pizzas, and the few stouts they had, like Bell's Kalamazoo Stout didn't really go with anything. Also any beer you purchase on-tap, or in bottle, comes served with a Conical pint shaped glass. Didn't seem like they were really focused on beer presentation. Not necessarily a beer destination.

Not sure how this is a beer destination, but definitely go there for the food. Its very, very good.

Check their website for the latest beer selection.

Nice setting for an informal quality pizza with some nice brews.

The spot is located a bit far from two metro stops in Wisconsin Avenue, and the setting for what it is feels actually a bit neighborly. With a nice informal sense one needs to place the food order, choose drinks, pick them up after paying and wait on the table for the food to be delivered. It sort of works nicely. The place is rather family friendly and the food quality with good beer options.

While nothing otherworldly, they offer about 5 or 6 fresh taps of quality brews, with one or two truly local choices. In addition among the bottles, and a couple of perfunctory macro choices, there are a handful of worthy craft choices. So, all in all, the experience beer wise works well. Not a destination per se but worthy.

Uncomplicated food feels quality, with very well reputed pizzas available whole or by the slice, and a nice selection of appetizers and other pasta related dishes. Their antipasto mix felt delicious... Gelatto and other hefty desserts are also available. A bit of a drag if there is a queue again but it sort of runs pretty fast...

They also do deliveries if one is lucky to be within the catchment area. Not my case, but since I'm actually not far from a nice walk I will probably revisit again.
