Stopped in for a beer while in town and can at least say I ticked a new beer... The atmosphere was nice, but service was disinterested, and when I asked to taste a beer, I got (and I kid you not) less than 1/4 oz (and it was a regularly distributed IPA). The selection is good and the pricing is par for the course. Itís a very disinterested corporate climate, and the only thing good about the place is the beer.
UPDATE: Iíve been back several times now, and service has gotten exponentially better. As such, while Iím not going to completely discount my initial experience, Iím going to weight my experiences and increase accordingly.

PROS: Very clean layout, lots of seating (lots of tables, bench seats, barstools, and additional seating in the back), great regional focus, especially with beer produced in town or within an hours drive. Good, diverse bottle selection, and generally well priced taps. Very competent service, and very friendly. Small samples were available for free before making an order decision. CONS: A little tooooooo slick in terms of ambiance and employee uniforms- reminded me of Buffalo Wild Wings/Hooters in the worst way- let those girls wear their own clothes! A little out of character for a "progressive" town. Some bottles seemed pretty high (12.5 and up for beers that might be half that in Louisville) and some taps were upwards of 10 bucks a pop. Moinette Bruin isnít that much at the most expensive bars in Louisville. 10 bucks gets you pours of Cantillon Gueuze at Holy Grale when itís there. Anyway, rant over in that respect. I suspect that (at least) one beer I was sold was in rather poor shape. Beers were only poured in one size (the appropriate glass for the beer), except for a predetermined flight. I hate predetermined flights. Charge me a couple bucks extra for my dirty glasses. I like appropriate glasses as much as the next guy, but no freedom to choose on flights? Bummer. OVERALL: Up and down for me, obviously. Iíd go back, and itís a good spot in some ways, but thereís a few easy fixes here that could make this place really great. Went in early July, so street parking was available in the area. No food, but close to some good eats; very close to Scholar House, which I found reasonable and tasty, especially with burger sales in the summer, and nice house made salads and cole slaw. Iíve only been to Bloomington twice, so I canít say much else but that Upland is definitely worth a visit for food and beer as well; my non beer-drinker wife happily eats there.

This new introduction to the Bloomington scene is a welcome addition. Unlike Yogiís, which has a great selection but questionable service, this place offers good service at a slightly higher price. The selection tends to be mostly local beers though they sometimes do tap takeovers (like Stone). Parking is fairly easy to find near the square as well. Check this place out when you are in town - just avoid big nights like home basketball games.

Relatively new, entirely craft focused bar. Ambiance is modern and clean with lots, probably too many, TVs. Frequently has live music at night. Service is for the most part good; seems well staffed but can get bogged down on crowded weekend nights. Selection is excellent - lots of Midwestern standards like Bellís, Founders, Upland, Three Floyds, etc. but also a good selection of one-offs from regional breweries. No food but you can get delivery from nearby restaurants. Prices are on the higher-end for Bloomington but not unreasonable compared to any major city. If youíre looking for craft beer in Bloomington this should be your first stop.
