A small shack, down-low ambiance. Kind of looks like a pawn shop from the outside, but the inside is nicer. Decent selection of hand crafted brews, albeit a little small. Didnít have the food. Good service, pretty nice beers all around. Nothing amazing but nothing terrible, either. A cool place to visit if youíre in the area.

Incredibly impressed so far.
Ambiance? Um... almost passed the place, because it seems like it was built in an old Coney. A few TVs, some high tops. Lots of families (kidís menu).
Service? Great. Even the chef came out to ask us what we thought!
Selection? 8 beers plus one blended beer on tap. Food had two good specials and a nicely done menu.
Speak of food...? Impressed as hell, frankly. Really well done food. House-smoked pork, twists on classic bar food (GOOD craft pickles to be fried, pork belly poutine, tacos from Mexican Town?!). No dessert (which would be nice!), but holy crap--the food was fabulous.
Value? Not bad at all, considering food quality. The flights are a good deal, and a half-pint averages $3, with the most expensive full pint being $6.
Overall? Will go back for sure. Interested to see what this place has to offer!

Day 1, was told they would have 6 beers, they drank up the pa-Ninja Chicken throughout the previous two weeks prior to opening day and must not had enough time to get a batch done before hand... Had to wait a while to get a sampler, 6 oz. Pours. The tasting as follows;
Amber Ale- excellent malt, caramel and toast, slight yeasty notes.
Cherry Blonde-bready, banana esters, slight clove, semi-dry, cherry finish reminds me of Sam Adams cherry wheat in level, thus not overpowering.
Velma IPA- this beer has great color, but is closer to a pale ale than an IPA. Grassy and floral, this batch under carbonated, but it is day 1.
Test Batch Stout-The batch they tested their big system on. Light in comparison to the style in color and mouthfeel. Great tasting though.
Angry Beaver Double Brown-Angry? Yes. Tasty? Oh Yeah. Not your mommaís brown ale. Very warming via the 8.7% ABV. sweet finish with a malty roast linger on the pallet.
