Went there during the day on the Sunday before Christmas so it was a little busy but not crazy.
This location has been a brewpub for many years.
If it weren't for the beer selection, it would be just another one as far as food, layout and atmosphere.
They are obviously going for the Belgian connection and all their own beers are belgian-inspired.
I had Daisy Cutter which was a very drinkable Belgian strong ale, 9% abv. I liked it but prefer Avery's Salvation.
I also tried their Trippel Lutz (Lutz is the brew master) which was forgettable, I'm sorry to say.
One of the great things about the place is that they have a long list of other Belgians plus a good list of local brews.

Lastly, the service was slow even though they seemed to have plenty of wait staff. Plus our guy forgot drinks once.

Bottom line though, is that it is probably the best craft beer spot on the Pearl Street mall, but that's not a very high bar.

Nice little place for a laid back happy hour. Great deal on high quality apps to eat. Olives and almonds were sooo good! They had about 8 house taps and 5 guest taps. Although not a ton to choose from, what they had was good and easy to sample. I liked their Mr. Chain Blue Lightning Imperial IPA and Saison the best. The Citra Session IPA was a pretty good session - a deeper citrus flavor than I would expect from a session. Very well done. Service was good, quick and knowledgeable. All in all a good place to stop at if you're roaming Pearl Street and want a good beer mid-day.

Long, narrow room with some seating out on the sidewalk. They have a nice selection of beer on tap with an interesting variety. The service was good. The food was really good, maybe better than the beer. It's worth a stop if you're on Pearl Street.
