I love this place. Itís two blocks from the house, the bartenders are awesome, and I always find something Iíve been wanting to try. I even like the simple and non-cluttered decor. Thereís no food there but you are allowed to bring in food from the restaurants in that strip. Thai Basil and Tessioís will even walk the food over to you!

Love this place. Sort of like a mini papago as far as the selection but more of a living room-man cave feel. No food. Nice tap selection. Friendly service. If they donít have the bottle you want you can go next door and oick it out and they will chill it down for you, Interesting concept.

When you consider the adjoining liquor store from which you can pick from, the selection is huge. Cool comfortable place although a bit small. Not there at a peak time so there was plenty of space.

Cool looking bare bones bar with 6 or so bar seats and then some tables and booths. As others have said they will make most beer geeks happy with their craft beer tap selection and they seem to go after kegs not likely found elsewhere. The draft Rogue Old Crusty was dynamite and I donít recall ever seeing that on tap anywhere I have been. I like that they have a much more diverse cooler stored selection than the attached store. I do not know if those can be purchased to go or have to be opened. I had a good experience and had some tasty craft beer to drink. I wouldnít mind making this a weekly or at least monthly stop after work. By the way the beer sampler selection is a great deal too and improving the "value" of this place for me.

Cool little place with a nice selection of taps and a groovy atmosphere. Seems to be a very popular place, as we had a bit of trouble getting a table, then again with this sort of selection I can see why. If this were MY local, Iíd pretty much live here.

Very chill place attached to one of the best bottle shops in the state. They usually have a nice selection on their 24 taps, and offer a flight of four 4oz beers from their tap selection for $8 which is perfect for tickers or those unsure if they like a certain style. Bottle selection is good too but the corking fee is a bit steep. Bartenders are very cool. Overall, nice little neighborhood bar. Eat first, as there is no kitchen.

Walked next door after checking out the bottle shop. Really nice space, a little small but it is what it is. Decent sized bar on the left, tables and some booths on the right. Coolers and bathrooms in the back. Atmosphere was pretty good. It was about half full when I got there and help steady through till I left. Service was pretty good. I didnít have to wait for a beer and he offered some tips for other places in the area. They donít offer food but you can bring your own in and eat it while you have a beer. Selection was solid. They had some really nice beers on draft but I noticed a bottle of Crooked Stave in the cooler I hadnít had yet so I went with that. Prices were pretty good. One or two seemed a little high but most were right on par with their competitors. Overall a nice bar that benefits from the bottle shop next door. I would definitely return if I was visiting the shop next door.
