Comments: Great place for trying local beers on tap plus perusing an extensive selection that focuses on US craft beer but has quite the array of imports with some previously unknown French ciders catching my eye the most. About half of the selection is refrigerated including beers you are most like to buy in 6-packs on the regular. Bizarre, expensive, large format singles sit on wire shelves. Great place to look through a large selection if you are seeking out rarities, but also a great stop for daily beer. Prices I thought were a tad more reasonable than what Iíve been used to in the past living in DC, LA, and San Diego. Fun discovery, thanks Ian.

Finally managed to stop in at the new joint, and was impressed with its capaciousness (two floors!), its sleek setting (at least compared to the O.G. Samís), and the even more extensive tap-list. Fine patio deck on the second floor is a great place to enjoy a pint of something killer and fresh. Familiar faces here = great service. And oh yes, the same ridonkulous bottle selection. Top notch!
