Good, affordable food (Hot and Sour Soup was amazing), and impressive beer. Unassuming location, so I'm pretty much wild about this place--I'm turned off by places and service that's full of themselves. None of that here, just the real deal. Tons of 5's on here, which might be overdoing it a bit, but it's good.

Atmosphere: Located in a odd little strip mall, its not quite the spot I'd expect to see one of the highest rated multi-taps on the site. Inside there is a bar area and a sprawled out seating area. Decorations are all over and beer related.

Selection and Quality: For all the good things I have heard of people having there, I must have hit on an off night. A large selection of taps but nothing I saw was worth going out of my way for. Good local selection and enough taps to cover all the styles.

Food: large menu. great spring rolls. The entrees weren't overly special in my opinion, but they were definitely unique to a beer bar.

Overall: I was disappointed with the taplist when I was there, but thats definitely not to say I won't be going back. Maybe next time Ill have to plan on going for a tap event or something were they have a better selection

I would probably fly to Vietnam to this food with this beer selection, but I only have to drive to Richmond. Score! We shared spicy squid with lemongrass and beef curry while drinking Cigar City sours. Enough said.
