This is the other place that was a go to pre-Friar Tuckís. very good range of micros, as well as your standard BMC fair for the frat guys. Prices are reasonable. Offers plenty of choice in a not so bad area.

From outside the place, and based on the sign and the fact that itís in a college town, most beer folk would probably pass this place by, but if youíre in town, stop in.

Iíve been here a million times because they keep good beers around and because it just so happens to be literally a few steps from my fianceeís apartment.

The ambiance is fine. Itís bright, clean, and full of goofy shit that mainly appeals to a college crowd. There are frequent give-aways like kegerators, fridges, etc.

The service is fair to bad. Unless youíre getting a keg, nobody really knows what theyíre selling you. If you go during the day and catch the manager, youíre in good shape. Go at night and the brah and blondes working wonít be able to tell you where the Expedition Stout is because itís not by the Skol Vodka.

The selection is pretty good for the area, the location, etc. They carry tons of Bellís, Three Floyds, Ommegang, Schlafly, and I could go on. They have a lot, and they focus a fair amount on keeping good craft beer in stock. It was one of the first places I saw Hopslam after Bellís finally recontracted Illinois.

The value is pretty average. They arenít screwing you, but you wonít get any great deals.

Overall, definitely stop by for a bomber or good six pack if youíre in the area. Youíll be pleasantly surprised.
