A small bar with some darn good taps, including some that are very special. The prices are very decent. The bar service is quite good, the table service doesn’t offer so much. The food is pretty simple, but there is a lot of stuff on the menu and everything I’ve had is good.

Located in downtown Crozet, this has the feel of a neighborhood bar/restaurant, and seeing as they are open late-ish and
have live music, I imagine this amounts to the sum total of nightlife in Crozet. Around 2:30 on a Sunday afternoon and the
place was not full but was still active. The bartender was exceptionally friendly and helpful. The food is American cuisine
and I had buffalo wings which were good. Prices are solid. Parking is OK, I can imagine it getting full quickly but there
may be more parking behind the building I don’t know about. There are 9 taps with one macro (Miller Lite). The beer has a
distinctly local focus... I believe an Avery beer was the only one from a brewery that wasn’t in Virginia or a bordering
state. I had a Williamsburg Alewerks Caledonia. They have two Starr Hill taps, which I’m not thrilled about, but this is
the closest beer bar to the brewery so I certainly understand. They have some bottles, but they selection is anemic craft
beer wise... Guinness, Newcastle, Session Black, a couple Starr Hill and some macros. I liked this place and I will be
back, since I’ve moved pretty close to it.
