I used to have a high rating for this place, until I paid over $100 to attend the Pipeworks pairing. For the cost of $100, I got 1 oyster, one half of a beet, a small bag of chips, a chocolate, a pork rind, and (NOT KIDDING) I licked a flower off of a monocle. If you have a beer event during dinner (7PM-11PM) and say youíre serving food, then SERVE FOOD. None of this comes even close to what the head waiter was instructing his servers to do...They were walking around with open 750s, holding them like champagne bottles, and pouring beers ON TOP of other beers. They were mixing beers. WTF. $100?!?!?!?!?!? Our group of friends left and walked to Haymarket so we could order some food. WOW.
This is a really fun place to visit. Once. With a group of people. Willing to spend probably $75 each on appetizers and cocktails. Many of the cocktails are over $20. They are delicious and itís just as much about the contraptions and presentation as it is about the alcohol. I am rating this on Ratebeer because we ordered all 10 of the Evil Twin Aviary series, and our server was absolutely outstanding with his beer knowledge. As the previous reviewer said, please order cocktails here rather than beer, at least to start the night. We ordered the 10 evil twin collabs for a table of 5 after already having 2 cocktails each.

One of the best places around for cocktails and a bite. For beer they have 10 Evil Twin beers that are each from a different barrel. Iíve had them all, select a couple but no need to spring for them all. Donít come her for beer.

Okay, Iíll bite. Having been here, they do have a limited but well curated bottle menu. This is, however, a cocktail lounge. The place starts and basically stops at cocktails. If you go here, please donít look for beer and get a cocktail.
