Really a place just to go out and wade through the crowd. Sometimes they might have a few craft beers on tap that you might get quickly if its not too late, fri/sat or when a band is playing. Decent if your seeking live music and a mediocre pint to drink while standing around. Service has really been hit or miss mostly depending on the crowd.

Place looks nice - just donít get it. Alot of nice work done, but layout is wide open. Stage for bands and a big open space. I guess for dancing. So, donít know if itís more club or bar. Pretty good selection of beer. 30 or so taps. Service was a bit "chippy". One of my bartenders was nice, but the two others seemed to act as if they were doing me a favor by serving me.
Overall, decent place.

Big signs pretend itís a craft brew place, but most of the beers we tried were stale, like they didnít sell or the beer lines were never cleaned. Also way overpriced and they donít disclose the prices prior to sale. Basically this is a 27 to 32 something meat market with liquor mostly.

Not sure if I can say anything more than the prior post, could have been much more than it is. Only open Thursday-Sat, all the taps are generic and nothing is unusual for the area. The bartenders are the type of people that thing Guinness is the darkest beer known to man. Other than that...

Ah, the newest place in Tallahassee, so I had to check it out. A disappointment for sure.
The ambiance is a bit... sparse. The main bar area is huge with a big stage and these weird bar-like tables with chairs facing each other, which would be very odd if strangers sat there and werenít facing the stage. Lots of space, but it seems weird and empty, and thereís basically no decor... it just seems... empty.
Service was prompt and friendly, but knew nothing of the beers. My wife ordered a coffee stout and when the waitress brought the beer she said, "Wow - brave girl! Thatís a dark beer!" It only could have been worse if she smacked on gum and twirled her hair on her finger.
Now for the selection. Opening a new place and boasting 38 taps makes for high expectations that were instantly not met. The taps are split into 2 bars. The outer bar has 8 taps and the inner has 30. The night I was there, the main bar only had 29 on tap... not sure what was up with that last tap. The available beers is quite disappointing considering what other bars in town are doing. Several macros, a few "premiums" like Yuengling and Sam Adams, a few typical imports like Heineken and Newcastle, and a few popular craft beers like Oscar Blues Daleís and DFH 60 Minute. They did have a couple of beers from Swamphead in Gainsville, which is cool, but so far their beer hasnít been great - but nice try, I suppose.
As for value, both of our points were $4.50, which is average to slightly high for the area. Other craft beer bars in town boast 3-4 dollar pints daily, so I canít say thereís a draw there.
Overall, stop by if you have some time to kill and want to see some live music. Otherwise definitely go to Proof and/or Fermentation Lounge.
