Been here a couple of times and enjoyed it. Very hip ambiance that can double as a nice date place or a relaxed place to grab a brew. Small but decent selection of beer. Good food. More of a food place that happens to have some palatable beer. Service has always been efficient and not fussy (one server geeked out on beer with me, so that was a plus). Prices are average for what it is. Have been a couple of times on a Friday night without a wait (yay).

Stopped by here with maniac and MaltDawg. Older building. Nice ambience. Kinda small, but high ceilings, couches and a massive brass "chandelier" add to a nice vibe. Parking doesn’t exist. Nice looking menu, and some reasonable prices, but the mac and cheese and fried chicken I got were both under-seasoned. 6 taps all with good stuff. Maybe a little pricy ($8 for Founders Breakfast, $6 for a local brown ale that is generally cheap), but their happy hour, which they call "social hour" knocks all draft beer to $3.50. 20-30 bottles, some macros and some more common craft beers. Service was inattentive. Not sure I want to visit again, but it was a decent stop.
