This is an attractive restaurant / bar located in the Arden Fair mall. Beer is not brewed on the premises, but there are 9 taps at the bar dispensing their standard beers and at least one seasonal. There are also about 20 pretty good guest beers and tap and a small assortment of bottled beers. The food is good but not great, and they specialize in pizza. The barkeep is very helpful and friendly. It is a well-designed location with many indoor tables and a few in the patio. A good stop.

Usually 6 standards on tap, a couple of "specials" on tap, and a few Belgians on tap. They have a Begian bottled ale list. The American standard Belgians. The house brews were v. gd, decent, mediocre. Depends on your taste. The burger was decent, and the blackened chicken was most excellent. Kind of like the Ram Brewery chain up North.

This place is located in a very quickly growing commercial development with plenty of stop signs, roads, concrete islands, and traffic congestion. Getting here is a pain in the ass. Large stainless steel coated doors greet you, followed by a large, spacious, banquet-hall type restaurant. The bar is to your left. Decor has a weird, upscale attempt with some cheesey chandaliers present over some tables and raised circular booth seating for some. There is a faux brick wall motif on the inside with some contemporary abstract like art, which clashes with the tacky company beer logos and signs. They have about 8-9 of their own beers on tap, with Guinness and Lindemans as guest taps along with a cider, I believe. They also have a nice selection of bottles (Kwak, Duvel, Gulden Draak, Chimay, Lindemanís, Dupont, Westmaille, Orval, Scaldis, Petrus, and Delerium) I had a pineapple pizza, which was definitely tasty. Chicago style, whic is very similar to Pizzaria Uno to those on the East coast.---Re-Rate----Just went back to this location for the first time in several years. They now have 20 guest taps (mostly common micros/imports). They also have a decent bottle list, with about 20 beers, including Orval, Cuvee Rene, Westmaille, Chimays, Petrus, Saison Dupont.
