Must be the one drinking establishment in Wisconsin that does not open until 4pm. Arrived for happy hour that runs from 4-6. Beers were $3.50 a pint. They had 7 beers on-tap and one repeated on the hand pull. The beers were a little better than average. I enjoyed them more than the previous few reviewers. The selection was not that varied however. Several locals came in and got growler refills and pizza to go. The pizza looked good but I did not try any. I had a pretzel and thought it was very good. The mustard could of used a little more bite though. Service was really good as the waitresses and bartender seemed to be at the top of their game. The building and the surrounding area is not the most handsome, but I would hardly call it a dive. A dive bar is the one down the block to the east. Inside has plenty of beer memorabillia with a huge mural of the Miller girl on the crescent moon on one wall that looked like it had been there for a very long time. Their merchandise looked cool and I was tempted to buy a $15 T-shirt.

In Superior in a BLDG and area that could really be cool with many undeveloped abandoned and some what historic buildings are all around. Its old school inside and thats fine with me , service and food (pizza) is outstanding its dank and musty inside several different rooms had a dozen or so brews on tap which were good the star here is the pizza, this is a place i find myself going to every time im in Duluth, it has a certain charm to it and its beer description and artwork are neat.

Finally made the stop in (has been on my agenda for a couple years now). The place is nothing fancy, but has a nice casual feel to it. One of the first things I noticed was the live music (which they have 7 days/week), so that was cool. There is ample seating - the bar of course, tables/booths in the main bar room as well as along a hallway and another room, and even some tables outdoors.

I ordered a couple pizzas and a flight of seasonal's/one-offs. The pizza was tasty. As for the beers, some were good, others not so much. The best of the flight was a spruce IPA and a BA Barleywine. Most of the offerings included were sours, none of which stood out as anything spectacular.

Overall the service was good and the servers friendly. Nice vibe, the kind of place I could probably hang out all evening and relax. The beer is kind of a mixed bag, but still fun to try them all (which is a pretty solid 15 or so offerings). For sure a fun and worthy stop.

This is in what appears to be an old waterfront bar formerly frequented by longshoremen and sailors. The crowd is now hipper and more diverse but it still has that vibe. they feature 7 house beers, have a classic hand pump and a series of seasonal offerings - 16 tap handles in all. The food is pizza.

Did a sampler and beers were OK to good, tried an appetizer which to was OK and satisfactory for a neighborhood pub, but not a destination for an advanced beer geek. Still worth a stop if in area.
