Cool bar. Good selection and variety of taps; import/domestic, local/national, with some nice out of the ordinary and rare taps. A number of bottles available as well, although the only one I asked fore happened to be unavailable... Was there at non-peak hours so service was prompt. Long bar with a good amount of seating. Worth a stop if you’re in the area.

First visit on a week night, nearly full for dinner. Found entrance in the back of the building. Really great tap list, lots of beers I can’t usually get. Comfortable place, narrow with a long bar, decent food. Good service,

NIce variety on tap and bottle...staff allows samples of most beers. Service rated low because someone in my party had a very restrictive diet..and it took multiple explinations to get food ordered right. Get the calamari....nice.

A surprising place with nice food and drinks. A Skinny space but they do a good job of using it with a long bar and tables. Service is good with nice recommendations. Selection is surprising for being up this way with a few nice things on tap. Food has been good on both my visits. Prices are not bad either.

I go here quite often. It is kind of small, but that is the only negative that I can find. It has a great atmosphere of old wallpaper and pictures, as well as strands of lights everywhere. And no tvs! There is always about 30 premium beers on tap and the selection, which constantly changes. There is often very rare or unique selections brought in. The staff is extremely knowledgeable. They know everything about what they have to offer. The food is very good. Quite simply, there is no other place like this in the area. I strongly recommend checking this place out if you’re around.

Been here a couple of times. Sat at the bar both times.
This place is a bit small - like a long rectangle that you’re oddly required to enter from the back side. Atmosphere is an odd mix of the local richie-riches and beer geeks.
Nice selection of beer with lots of rotating taps. Nice to see they had both regional breweries (like FFF, Bell’s, and Great Lakes) and locals (like Half Acre and Tighthead). Everything served in the proper glasses.
Ate lunch this time around and while it was better than average, it really wasn’t anything special. Had a burger (supposedly grass-fed beef) and while it was good, it had to have been previously frozen. Wife had a muffaletta which was overly salty and lacked the requisite olive dressing. If I lived in the area I’d come more often, but couldn’t see making a special trip.
