We walked here, and easy reach from the mall, but there is also a bit of street parking and some pay lots. The place is large, with a long bar that runs the length. We did flights, reasonably priced. The beer was OK, but nothing to write home about. Friendly staff. Didnít try the food.

May 2006: Decent locale on the town square. Good food, especially the salad ... and a nice list of brews that overall were delicious.

This place was rocking on a Friday night before a home game, though we managed two seats at the bar. The interior is nicely done and seems to be a renovated old building, retaining some of its old charm. The bar service was very good and efficient. There were 7 or so house beers on, and the 3 I had were solid. I ate no food, but intend to stop in again and will try out the menu.

Nice atmosphere though it can get really crowded at times. It doesnít open until 4 or 5, which sucks when a bunch of us get off of work at 3:30 and want a pint or two. On site brews range from bland and boring to excellent. Iíve only had the tostada, but it was excellent. Sampler for $6. Parking gets crowded, but there is a pay lot directly across the street that is 50 cents an hour or free after 6PM.

Bizarrely empty during my 11pm visit on a Friday night. Maybe the townies went into hiding? Anyway, the layoutís pretty cavernous. Plenty of places to sit and relax. The barís probably 50 feet long. On the plus side, South Street offered plenty of their house beers. Unfortunately, none of them were particularly impressive. Prices were acceptable, though certainly not cheap. The service was friendly, kind. This is the kind of place to accumulate ticks at then visit sporadically.

I like this place. Iíve dropped in three times when passing through Charlottesville and had a good time on each occasion. It is in a downtown location in a nice old building. There are booths to sit at if you prefer that but Iíve always hung out at the bar and quickly been pulled into conversation with friendly locals. Twice I ended up not doing the more thorough survey of Charlottesville I had intended because of the convivial company in here. On one occasion service was a little slow because there was only one person serving who, as it is a very long bar, didnít always spot customers that needed a refiil if they were some distance away. Decent enough brewpub food. Six or seven of their own beers on tap, often with one on cask, and a guest or two. There are printed sheets telling you something about the beers. Beer quality is solid, if unspectacular. Sometimes has low key live music but Iím not sure of the schedule.

Nice art in the warehouse-like restaurant, the service was solid from the waitstaff, but the kitchen didnít do so well. And the food really wasnít that good. Meanwhile, the beer is decidedly mediocre.

Last stop on the 2008 Brews Cruise. I had their Satay with Tuna and it was delicious. Service was really slow, but it was a Saturday night so thatís to be expected. The headbrewer was awesome and gave a great tour. I actually learned a lot and he gave us HUGE samples of all his beers. Satanís Pony was my favorite beer they had on tap.

Got there at 5 on a Thursday, was pretty dead (a few people at the bar). Got seated and treated by nice staff.

Ambiance and atmosphere is about right, very good looking inside. Along with the bar and a bunch of booths/tables, there are a few lounge areas that look like theyíd be great places to lounge and chill with some friends. Small pay lot (before 6) is across the street, but also what appears to be a huge parking garage a block away.

Food was better than I expected, very tasty.

Located near the downtown mall and just in front of train tracks .... parked in a pay lot across the street ..... nice ambiance old brick building with wooden ceilings ... old basement tavern feel ... bar filled with young working adults .... nice seating area and the food was good ..... brews were average not a bad place to stop in
