This location is very similar to the other ones in the area. The rooms are very big with really long bars that have an ice zone embedded in the them and when theyíre anywhere close to full they can Be very loud indeed. They have a ton of taps and bottles with a good representation of local stuff and some newest/latest and some rarities to add in the mix. The service tends to be solid though you occasionally encounter a bartender who realy knows their stuff. The prices are reasonable, the food is good, and its too bad one of these isnít closer to where I live.

Went here expecting a lot because of the number of beers on tap. I was kinda disappointed though because basically all the beers on tap were things that I could have picked up at my local beer store. Maybe I went at a bad time.

Have only made the trek out here a few times for events but was pleased. Itís newer and nicer than the other locations and I havenít had as many instances of "weíre out of that" here (though could just be because donít go as often). Food, service, etc... all fine. Met the beer buyer here (while out at another beer establishment) and was pleased to find out she is actually a beer geek!

Not wildly impressed to be honest. It started with asking for a sample of the Victory Headwaters on cask, and being given a sample of Starr Hill Cryptical and being told that it was, in fact the pale ale - because pale ale and stout are so easy to mistake. This was then followed by my first two beers chosen not being available. My burger was decent, but the price is out of all proportion with the food on the plate. Service was ok, but no more so than that.

Very knowledgeable staff and wide variety of beers. They change them every so often so new beers are a plenty.

Great beer selection. Poor service, and very expensive. I love the place, and its probably better than the downtown location, but the service often shoddy at best.

Came here for the first time for the 2nd annual Virginia Beer Festival. so most of my time was spent outside though I did get a good look inside. Kinda tough to get to and pretty much in the middle of nowhere, but parking is ample.. if they can accomodate all of us at the festival they can accomodate anyone. The inside is nice with lots of seating (some patio seating as well it looked like). Very large place. Nice long bar with the taps actually on the bar and the big cooler of bottles behind. Fairly typical cap ale setup. Prices are decent. People were all very nice and our waitress was working VERY hard but was nice the whole time anyway. Low marks on the food... not only was it not the regular menu, but, though tasty, two in our party both became ill, one of them being myself. Probably a one time thing, but still very lame. Still a good stop if youíre in the Midlo area.
