Out of towner, just visited for a dinner and a few beers one Monday evening. Pretty typical brewpub setup, a little darker than I like. Food was good, a touch pricey. Elaborate belt/pulley system used to power the ceiling fans that I only noticed right before I left. Neat murals and rough 40s Walt Disney style illustrations of their house beers hanging on the brick walls. My waiter wasnít incredibly knowledgable about their beers. They didnít have a paper beer list, and their chalkboard listing wasnít even up to date. Still, Iíd come back again.

Fantastic atmosphere and great service. Good selection of their own brews, but I wasnít a fan of some of the beers.

This is a mediocre brewpub in a below-average beer city (I guess that makes it a pretty decent brewpub in Buffalo). Located in downtown Buffalo, it is a large brewpub/restaurant. There were many beers on tap (maybe 10-12), although half were light beers or fruit beers. The beers are drinkable, but not great. The food menu is standard pub fare, perhaps slightly above average. It is a nice place to relax with a pint, but overall, I was not impressed.

This place is very cool - several levels of patios in the back and tons of space inside. Several bars as well. I had a sampler of their brews which were all pretty decent. The bartender downstairs was friendly and knew a good amount about their brews. Definitely worth a stop if youíre in Buffalo.

1st stop on íBrew tours 2012í(March). Since we got there right when they opened on a Sat. morning, there was no problem parking or getting good service from them. Got a sample tray of 8 beers. Just wish they were more than 2 ounces each. The sandwhiches were good. Got a bomber bottle to go. Just wish they had kept their website updated as to which they had in stock. I saw their imperial stout listed for months that they did not have it.

Came here to beat the heat. Large restaurant with seating on two floors, outdoor balconies. Beer selection on tap eas all their own save labatt blue and labatt light. Service was attentive, but failed on the difference between a pale ale and an ipa. I had two beers, neither were above mediocre. No food thanks. Next

I went to a wedding rehearsal here last November. The placed was packed after a Hockey game and I found myself having more fun with the regular crowd than with the wedding party. Great ambiance, shocking food and excellent Lake Effect Pale Ale.

I have truly mixed feelings about this bar. The sports bar area downstairs is not really my scene, but go one floor up and you get into a belly-up beer bar. I sat at the left-end and had a bunch of beers made on premises. Is the beer amazing? No. But itís not bad either. Itís very serviceable and I like to support a local place making their own product. Once the bar gets into "night club" territory, it gets far less desirable. My party left and came back later at night, and when I was ten steps into the bar, the doorman chased me down and told me there was a $10 cover. (He might have caught me had he been doing his job instead of gladhanding his buddies.) I declined to pay the cover and left. I donít do cover charges, son.
