Small and seedy, with a horseshoe bar and a few tables, TVs, etc. They allow SMOKING here, one of the few places around that still gets away with this. I don't really mind, but just FYI. Service is okay. Beer selection isn't out of this world, but they have a good standard tap list, and every once in a while something extra special will pop up...saw BCBCS'14 on tap once, for example. Food is basic snack/pub-grub stuff: apps like wings, fries, some bigger items like roast beef, fish&chips. I haven't sampled any.

Perhaps a good pit stop to hang at if you're waiting for Forest & Main to open, but otherwise not a great bar.

Place is rather small. Plenty of bar space but that is the majority of the seating. A few tables around the perimeter and a few chairs along the wall with a table-top running along with just enough room for a pint.

With that being said I was rather surprised by the selection of beers. I was expecting this place to be mainly BMC with a few local suspects. But on tap was Sierra Nevada Celebration and Rodenbach Grand Cru. (just to name a few) In fact there was only one BMC on tap and still plenty of craft bottle selections that should please everyone.

Didn't try any food as it looked like normal bar food and the list wasn't extensive. (also didn't see anyone eating either...)

They also do growler fills.

Pros : Fine selection of beers.

Cons: Small, they allow smoking, beer is too cold.
