Chain pub/restaurant with great decor, good location, excellent food, usually good wait crew - and an OK beer selection. Six taps, mostly macro and near craft, but usually have a beer or two that are real craft. First issue is that wait crew do not always have an up to date list. Second issue is most of the wait staff are clearly not beer drinkers or BMC drinkers (same thing) and know nothing about craft - and not sure management does either. Their beer list has Bud, Bud Light, Coors, etc and then Lagunitas or Boulevard. Just the brewery name as if you would order based only on that - and when you ask which specific beer they often give you the puzzled dog look. After all - someone asks for a Budweiser and you bring them a Budweiser. I explain to them that Lagunitas or Boulevard is the brewery name and they may have a dozen or more different beers. Sometimes when I've explained this I get a pitying look like "for god's sake quit being picky and just order". Most are good about it and find out the specifics. This is the fault of management - don't create a list with just the brewery name of a craft beer - and educate the wait staff about how craft beer naming differs from BMC. Sorry about the soap box - still a decent place to go.
