Bar styles itself as a lounge and neighborhood bar, a characterization that I agree with. The building is quite cool, an old grocery store with beams and old brickwork prominently displayed. Mix of decor almost lends to a ski lodge type feel. Dimly lit and good music playing at a reasonable volume. Lots of space inside and some setups of couches and armchair give it a fairly relaxed vibe.

Despite the somewhat small selection of on-taps, I found the choice to be fairly impressive with a good mix of styles and breweries represented including Founders. Behind the bar is a long cooler with somewhere around 175 beers by my estimate, again the choice is beer is quite good with only the imports lacking a bit.

I like this place, would definitely go back again. Only downer is that there is at least one bar in town with a better selection and the prices at Satellite seemed to be a buck or two higher than similar establishments. Seems like a good bar to bring a date to.

this place is right in my air barn looking bar with lots of comfy seating and awesome beer. service is almost perfect every time i go on there but there is the occasional slow bartender, that is to come with a high traffic place with a massive bar inside. the beer selection is much better than expected and the bands they book on the weekends are great. really like the location of this place, off the beaten path, just hope this place doesn't get too big...home run guys! good job!
