Steamworks is a piece of Nostalgia for me. I discovered it when I had just turned 20. I knew absolutely nothing about craft beer, including the fact that it existed. The girl I was with asked for "something wheaty, like a Begian." That sentence in itself confused me, but when I had the witbier it was like a whole new world opened up in front of me.

Flash forward: 2007. The revisit. I tried three of the offerings, the Porter, IPA, and Witbier, and all were adequate if not slightly above average for the style. There is two levels, both spacious and relaxing. The girlfriend and I sat by a window, and did the crossword, read, and were served promptly when our beers emptied. There were about 6-8 beers on tap when we were there, all house offerings, two were seasonals. All we had for food was an order of yam fries, which is hard to screw up, and they didn't. All in all a great place to waste an afternoon with some good beer.

OK, I was surprised how much I ended up enjoying this place. I was expecting total tourist trap mediocre. Their beer is actually very good and the food is tasty as well. We were fortunate to get window seats during the noon hour without waiting, even though the place was very busy.

Huge place with an upstairs and downstairs. Had their Jasmine IPA which was well above average. There are pool tables downstairs. Didn't have any food, but it's a great place to go with a group of friends.
