It certainly has a chain restaurant feel. But the food and service was very good and the beer selection is almost overwhelming.

went here on a Monday night and place was half full - then around 8pm it was jamming! Totally surprised to see such a vibrant and strong scene in AL on a Monday, but folks were having a good time, and there was a great lineup of core and one-off beers from folks all over. Staff was friendly and well-trained. Very inspired to see the craft beer scene take hold all over now...

This Wob is bright and airy. Large terrace at the side entrance.

The bar is along the wall and it seats maybe 15. There are lots of tables both large and small, so groups are no problem. There is also a small raised stage

I counted 44 beers on tap plus a big selection of bottles which are clearly displayed in the glass front coolers. Selection is decent . I would like to see a few more PA/IPA on tap.

There are lots of tvs turned to sports. Classic rock in the background.

The food menu isn't large, but it has some decent appetizers and sandwiches.

Service was decent & free with samples.
