Killer gourmet burger place with a decent beer selection. Not a ton of beer choices, but the ones they do have are usually really good. Burgers were outstanding. Place itself is a little cramped, but itís got a really cool vibe. Burgers alone are worth the visit, but you typically wonít be disappointed with the beer choices to help wash the food down. Iíll definitely be back.

The two of us were greeted at the door by Deano, who welcomed us and directed us to Justin and Aaron, who were working the bar. Justin took an interest in us, and, seeing that we wanted to try several local brews, suggested we split bottles and tap pours. They donít have beer flights, so this was a good solution to the "try a lot of brews" approach we wanted. The evening went quickly, I added seven new beers to my ratings, and went away satisfied. A good place, good ambiance, and bartenders who know their stuff.

I stopped here on both a Tuesday and Thursday night, because there is nothing else in the area. Good food, averaging around 10 or 11 dollars a burger, beers are anywhere between 4$ and 10$ a glass (KBS) , Tap list is vastly outdated on their site so youíll just have to try. 10 taps one is usually abita rootbeer, smallish bar and street parking only. Still in SE Georgia this is probably as good as it gets.

Really cool place. A little on the pricey side, but everything is quality. The food was excellent, although the fish and chips is probably big enough for two. The yukon gold whipped potatoes are about as good as mashed potatoes get. The burgers are good enough that you realize why the prices are a little higher than youíd normally expect from a burger joint. Staff was really helpful and friendly without being annoying. It is a fairly small space, although I love the fact they built a loft over the booths to increase capacity without just cramming more tables in. That being said, it is a lot of tight space. Lots of dark work and graffiti along the booths. The beer selection may have actually been no-crap-on-tap. They definitely care about the beer, though. I really like this place. Itís the first bar/restaurant Iíve found in Macon thatís actually worth going to for a beer geek.

Rotating beer selection doesnít have many choices, but a fair selection of styles. The food ( the burgers) are amazing. Never had anything less than an awesome burger. Highly recommended for the food, but donít expect a ton of beer choices.

One of my favorite places to visit in Macon. Their beer selection is very good, and their hamburgers are to die for! The waiters know their craft beer and can give good recommendations. Their beer selection is pretty good with lots of variety.

Had dinner here in late May 2012. Lively bar and grill with about 10 taps - mostly craft and about a dozen craft bottles and the rest macros. They specialize in hamburgers and I had the Black and Blue Burger with battered fries - very good and filling. On tap they had a few 21st Amendments, some Victory, Bellís, Fun, lively crowd. Prices just a tad steep - can of 21st Amendment Monkís Blood was $6.00.
