2010: One last try here, it was pretty dull. Beer list was sort of a "training wheels" approach, with mostly middle of the road stuff. They did add 4 taps, but there are better options in the area (Fizz, Village Tap, Four Moon). Hell, even the pizzeria down the street has Daisy Cutter on tap. 2008:
Stopped in here recently and had an okay experience. There were no taps, just a medium sized bottle list, organized by style, origin, and even by color for the Belgians. The variety was pretty good, though limited. For example, DFH 60 min but no 90 min, Pride and Joy but no Alpha King or Gumballhead. Lots of pale ales. The atmosphere was nice inside, and they had a covered deck patio outside also. The food was very good and of high quality. I would return for dinner sometime if I was going to a show nearby at Schubas, but not for a night of beer drinking.
