First off, this is a biker bar. That said, I came straight from work in corporate business casual dress and everyone was very friendly and the staff very helpful.
Tap list was impressive, more than I would expect. They had about 20 taps, no macro that I saw, with about 8 devoted to IPAs or pale ales (Peeper, Sculpin, DFH 90 min). Definitely enough selection that I had a tough time figuring out what to get because there were plenty of good choices. My gose and pale ale came in a shaker pint, but my brett IPA came in a flute-y tulip.
The food was good - not outstanding, but above average. Curly fries were delicious, and the hot wings were decent. I will return some time to check out more of the tap list and probably try a burger.

Excellent wings, they have ruined me for any other wings. Tons of flavors to choose from, half price on Mondays. Great burgers too. Excellent beer list. A bit pricey on the beer but worth it. Servers at times have no idea what they are serving, nor what size glass it is supposed to be in.
Small place and hard to get into in the evenings. Sometimes hard at lunch too. Good problem for them to have.

Have stopped here a couple times now and have come away impressed every time. They have increased their taps to 20 and all are micro brews. Arrogant Bastard, Half Full, and Sebago are just some of them and they change all the time as the owner is on his game. They recently had Southern Tier Pumpking and of course in February it was nice for that change from my stouts.

The staff is great and nice but what I love the most is the multiple flavors of wings they have. I had a great time pairing a lunch of wings with the beers on tap. I would recommend this place for anyone going through the area for some good food and great tap selection. It is a little place so it can get a little crowded at times but it is definitely worth it.
