I've stopped in here a few times while waiting for a train back to the burbs. The inside is large with an open layout, seems kind of like a converted warehouse. There's a large bar on the wall to your right as you walk in - that's where I've seated myself during my visits. The bartenders have always been quick to take my order and answer questions about the large selection of beer that's been available during my visits, even taking the time to ask questions about favourite styles, make suggestions, and provide small samples. Friendly and quick service is always appreciated, particularly when you're a slave to the train schedule. As mentioned the beer selection has always been large during my visits, probably on the order of 15+ taps. There have usually been multiple choices for a given style, particularly stouts, IPAs and pale ales. I'll continue to stop in here due to both the convenient location and the selection/service.

A decent place to eat and drink for a franchised brewpub. My first disappointment was when choosing the beers for my flight of four, they were out of two of the beers I wanted to try. No big deal, though, since their selection was rather extensive. My second was when I was told that they had nothing on cask that month (the server didn't know for what reason).
