Technically, I don't think Union should be listed on BA. It is not a destination for beer. They have 4 taps, 3 of which are beer and 1 is cider. Beyond that, a few bottles and cans. Hardly worth a visit, though nice to have the selection available. Food is pretty good. Don't go out of your way to come here for beer though. Kelly's is down the street just a little ways and more worth the effort.

You walk in to this unassuming store front with long wooden picnic style tables a very plain decor with almost a barn earth tones and exposed wood. Bring enough people to chow down with or you will be packed in with a group of locals, which is okay but when it comes to BBQ like this I like to get down.

The pulled pork melted in my mouth, the brisket amazing, ribs were finger licking fall of the bone and the sides were creative and delicious. Everything on the menu sounds great and the bottle list is great, I guess they installed a small tap selection, I was too busy drinking the Saison dupont bottles it just went really well with my meal after a day at the wavepool with friends and family. Not a beer destination but really well done BBQ with much better beer list than you would find at any similar style of restaurant.

Server put up with our large party just fine, and all the food came out promptly...I'm pretty sure we beat the rush by the time we were leaving the place people were lined up out front and standing there watching us eat. I heard they are doing something upstairs above the dining area, I'll have to revisit. Upstairs is called Highland & Harvard it's supposed to be a higher end cocktail bar, but the drinks are available up and downstairs...I love the restaurants popping up throughout this area way too many good options!!!
