Went here for dinner during a business trip. Its a little side bar in a movie theater (with food and beer served during the flick) pretty sweet theater. I just went for dinner; no movie.
Sat at the bar and had awesome service. Bartender and all staff were awesome; on top of it all night, loved beer, and just flat out good people. Nice classy looking bar.. a little too classy for the atmosphere, but better than the opposite. Anyway...nice granite top bar and lots of flip-top bottles on the wall...
Regardless...huge selection; 32 taps I think, and like 8 or so bombers on display; including 4 from the bruery, wayerbacher, pumpking, etc...
drafts include about half locals, others include Brooklyn, bear republic, and a few seasonals. and rarities I actually had a Lost Rhino Faceplant IPA (very common locally I hear), a Bear Republic Racer Café, Boulevard Tank 7, and finished with a Bear Republic tartar!!!
Food is hard for e to review being vegetarian, but the veg burger with avocado and fried egg was that they also had tofu as a "protein option" in their wraps section.
Overall, an awesome place with amazing service! and a superb taplist. You must visit!

Stopped by for HH:

It is a theater, first and foremost, so not quite the craft beer vibe you might look for. That said, the transient clientele was nice, but most people are there for one drink before/after a show.

The level of the beers was decent, a combination of local staples, some seasonal brews, and actually some nice national offerings you wouldn't expect given the location in a theatre.

Service had a bit of a hiccup with some volume, but fell into a flow at a certain point. Very nice, informed servers willing to help.

Grabbed only a couple apps, which were decent, but over-salted. Didn't expect much - basic bar food, and got okay offerings of such.

A pretty good selection of like 30 brews from the area including stouts, porters, and IPAs. With a cycling stock, it forces you to try new beers every now and again. Overall, the beer tastes fresh, and the service and pricing are both good as well.

Visited here on 11/3/2014 for some drinks and dinner. The food was really unexceptional, i had the jerk chicken sandwich was had good spice and not a whole lot more going for it.

The beer selection was good, not great. Some exceptional options out of the 30 or so taps were a 2013 vintage Pumking, Founders Dirty Bastard, Bells Two Hearted. Most of the others were local beers which didn’t really pique my interest.

The place was rather empty on a Monday night, and considering there was a football game happening, I expected more people, and considering the lack of clientele, the service was so so. Lots of bartenders standing around and yapping while i had an empty glass.

Overall, this is a okay spot for some decent beers, in a completely boring area. Don’t expect much and you wont be disappointed
