As I understand it, this is a chain that specializes in serving craft beer and this location is only recently opened. I swung by while on the Dale Mabry in Tampa. I like the feel and the decor pretty well, though it's not my favorite. It's very modern, which is nice, and the bar is nice if a little understated. While I don't mind one here and there, I just don't think anyone needs quite so many TVs in a bar. The tap list is one a huge chalkboard on one side of the room, which is cool. It's clean for sure, very tidy. The space isn't perfectly utilized, but it's fairly open. It's not a food place, per se, so I didn't try what little was offered. Service seems to be spotty, depending on the particular waitress and how busy it is. Bartenders seem reliable and knowledgeable, though. There were something like 60 taps and a whole lot of bottle offerings to boot. They seemed to make it a point to only offer craft, too. I would definitely recommend this place in the afternoon. I hear it gets rowdy at night, but I can't see it getting too crazy just based on who the clientele would be and their setup.
