Nice restaurant with a good amount of craft beer, sleek interior. Good amount of bar seating and a good amount of dining tables. Draft selection is pretty good, nice variety of mostly local and regional offerings. Food and desserts are great, try the poutine fries! Bar service was friendly. A bit pricey but not too bad. Well worth a stop if you’re in the area.

Really nice place. Nice bar and resturant area. The outside seating is nice as well. Great selection of beers. Some nice rare beers available. The food really steals the show here. Lots of great choices and all excellent. The food is a cut above most brew pubs. The wait staff is always friendly, competent, and knowledgelable. It’s a little pricy but you are getting your moneys worth. A definate must go.

Definitely a must do when in area. Nicholas, the bartender was very helpful with not only their beer genres, but also surrounding area establishments with good craft beer offerings. Really good porters on tap!

A must stop while in the Columbia area. The owners have introduced themselves on a few occasions and they are very helpful and accomodating. The beer selections are great and the food is top flight yto. Add a great atmosphere and you have a winning combination.

Shopping mall exterior gives way to a cozy bar and separate dining area. Sat at the bar with almost everyone else in the place at happy hour and beyond, so service was good at first but slowed a bit when they got deluged in the bar. Draft beer selection is not huge, but very well selected and they have a fairly extensive bottle list as well. Food was excellent and one of the few who should be allowed to call themselves a Gastro Pub. Beers are high quality but a bit overpriced. However, the food pricing is actually a pretty good deal for the quality presented.

Nice gastropub in Columbia. Nothing special from the outside, but the interior is spacious and well designed. Thoughtful beer selection, but a bit on the safe side. Food is the standout here and everything I’ve had was delicious. Good apps also make this place a good choice for a happy hour gathering. Great staff and management with occasional beer dinner events.

Ambiance: In a strip mall, so from the outside it looks like a frackin’ Ruby Tuesday. Inside, decor is awesome, with lots of dark wood, brass, and sweet-ass wallpaper. Service: Pretty darn good. Server noticed me taking notes about the beers and directed me to their beer club. When I signed up for that, Victoria herself came out and chatted me and the wife up; she’s a super nice gal and clearly loves her job. Selection: 24 rotating taps (including Rodenbach Grand Cru and Weihenstephaner Vitus), which include some harder to find items, plus a massive but well-organized bottle list. Top notch. Food: HOLY CRAP BALLS this place has good food. Started with the poutine (duck fat fries, gruyere cheese, duck confit, brown gravy), and my wife almost lost a hand coming between my fork and this platter of heaven on earth. Steak with some BAD-ASS bacon/cheddar/chipotle grits that will punch you in the mouth with awesomeness. Value: You pay for quality, my friends. Everything is slightly upscale, although the beers are relatively reasonable (and offer 12 or 20 oz pours, as well as flights). Appetizer + 2 entrees + dessert + 5 beers + beer club membership = about $160. Overall: Awesome. If you are in Columbia and miss out on this place, you should hate yourself just a little. It’s right down the street from Perfect Pour, for crying out loud. Make an afternoon of it!

Stopped in for the first time for a beer. Selection was very good and I appreciated how they served 12 or 20 oz for many of the beers. I didn’t have the food but will say that it looked good. Service was fine and geared towards a nice restaurant experience. I was surprised about how unfriendly the place felt to have a beer -- hostesses were stiff and unwelcoming and the decor seemed geared more towards high end dining. In whole it works because of the selection, but not a place for simply enjoying good beer.
