I liked this place and recommend going out of the way for it. It was fairly busy on an ordinary weeknight, yet we were still able to get a nice table and great service. Though not fancy, the bar is a lovely three sided affair, and several tables are lined up differently to get some privacy. People were hanging out outside. The ceiling had unusual beautiful tiling. Some great guest taps, which only enhance the 60s environment of sharing. Their own brews were very good Good bottle selection. I understand the food is pretty good, and superior to the other bars.Music was pretty loud

Visited for lunch on a Thursday. Bigger space with a large U shaped bar with tables all around. Seemed new and well worn at the same time, comfortable space. The place was almost entirely dead when I arrived. Picked up some as lunch progressed. Service was nice and knowledgeable. 11 of their own beers, nice selection of guest taps. They do 5 oz samples of all their beers in mini-nonic pint glasses, which I appreciated. I had the Italian Sausage pizza which was a little sloppy, though the sausage and crust were great. Nice place, would hit it a bunch if I lived nearby.

A cool 2 floor establishment, very nice, warm, woody, with 2 large bars on each floor. The beers tasted were good but the food was stellar (and not too expensive). Had the Crispy Pork Belly sandwich with egg, served with fries, and it was superb. Nice selection of sandwiches,pizza and desserts. If in town, I shall be back.

Very crowded place on a Tuesday evening. Nice selection of very good beers. Maybe this place could be paid a visit again. Close to our accommodation...

Visited here on Dec. 29, 2011. Tremendous spot! About a dozen house brews (which were excellent) and a few other guest taps. Extremely friendly and knowledgable waiter. Flights/samples available at $2/5 oz pour, which is great. Tried the margarita pizza and the cheddar ale soup - both were fantastic. I love this place.

We stopped in for lunch on a Friday afternoon. The space feels big and open, with a rectangular bar in the middle and lots of tables. They had 15 house brews and a guest tap. The beers were good and sample size pours were offered for each. Prices were fair. Most of us ordered burgers for lunch, which were really large and tasty. The staff was very friendly and accommodating of our party of 8. Nothing extraordinary, just a really good all-around brewpub experience.

This place us usually jam packed. Very cool atmosphere, nice tables, very new look. At the back is big glass plane where you can see the brewery. They had 6 of their own brews, 6 or 7 guest taps and probably 30-40 bottles. Their own brews were all pretty good, I got a tasting flight a very good deal. The guest taps were ok, guest bottles were so-so. Decent amount of bottles but a lot of semi macros that Im not a huge fan of, but some trappists too so pretty decent. The service was really good, server was nice, and sorta knowledgeable. He knew a lot about there beer but Id venture to say not a ton about beer in general as he commented he thought our table of 3 BAs were in the beer industry based on tableside conversation. The food was the downside of the place. Bar food galore. A really nice bacon fat popcorn appetizer but everything else was so-so. Great atmosshere for a local brew pub. There brews were really good and I will be going back soon.

Easy to find location with street parking. Went to the bar in the center of building with a rough wood interior and brewing equipment at the back. Got to sample all brews and a glass of water included. Good selection of brews that are average to above. Service is timely and attentive, with good knowledge of beers. Did not have food.

Stopped in with my wife on Saturday around 5:30 and it was almost packed but did not have to wait for table which was a present surprise. 8 house brews were all pretty solid. 7 or so guest taps and 5 different casks. Awesome selection of brews when you think about it. For food we had the Bacon Fat Popcorn which was great, the 4 pieces of Bruschetta which was different but solid, and the Margarita pizza which was average. Tab was only $54 which wasnt to bad for the city. I really like the design of the building. Exposed brick, large front windows that open, huge 360 degree bar, open kitchen. My wife really like this place. Will be back again for sure.
