I have been to the brewpub at least a dozen times. The beers are absolutely world class, and they usually have something special avalable. The atmosphere is a nice mix of old style bar, lots of wood, and some brewing equipment to add to the ambience.

The food has always been good, especially their pretzel appetizer with dips...phenomenal! Pretty much all you need to have with your beers.

The service has always been lackluster. Many times they are out of certain items, and the servers seem unapologetic and not very eager to offer suggestions. The service is not bad, but I expect good service when spending this kind of money. The place is by no means expensive, but it sure is not cheap.

Overall, this is a must visit for any beer fan that has the opportunity. The gift shop is a nice touch as well, and they usually have great deals on beer and glassware.

GLBC! So happy that I live near this place. I love their beers and the pub exclusives are always top-notch. They put out some experimental beers in their pub; there are generally 2-3 available at all times. They host some cool events throughout the year - movie nights, beer releases, beer school, etc. Service is good, food is above-average.
