Ambiance: In a strip mall, so from the outside it looks like a frackin’ Ruby Tuesday. Inside, decor is awesome, with lots of dark wood, brass, and sweet-ass wallpaper. Service: Pretty darn good. Server noticed me taking notes about the beers and directed me to their beer club. When I signed up for that, Victoria herself came out and chatted me and the wife up; she’s a super nice gal and clearly loves her job. Selection: 24 rotating taps (including Rodenbach Grand Cru and Weihenstephaner Vitus), which include some harder to find items, plus a massive but well-organized bottle list. Top notch. Food: HOLY CRAP BALLS this place has good food. Started with the poutine (duck fat fries, gruyere cheese, duck confit, brown gravy), and my wife almost lost a hand coming between my fork and this platter of heaven on earth. Steak with some BAD-ASS bacon/cheddar/chipotle grits that will punch you in the mouth with awesomeness. Value: You pay for quality, my friends. Everything is slightly upscale, although the beers are relatively reasonable (and offer 12 or 20 oz pours, as well as flights). Appetizer + 2 entrees + dessert + 5 beers + beer club membership = about $160. Overall: Awesome. If you are in Columbia and miss out on this place, you should hate yourself just a little. It’s right down the street from Perfect Pour, for crying out loud. Make an afternoon of it!

Stopped in for the first time for a beer. Selection was very good and I appreciated how they served 12 or 20 oz for many of the beers. I didn’t have the food but will say that it looked good. Service was fine and geared towards a nice restaurant experience. I was surprised about how unfriendly the place felt to have a beer -- hostesses were stiff and unwelcoming and the decor seemed geared more towards high end dining. In whole it works because of the selection, but not a place for simply enjoying good beer.

Pretty close to perfect. Beer selection is amazing and food is great as well. The lobster grilled cheese is a must!

A nice gastropub conveniently located in Columbia. From the outside, it looks like it could be another strip mall parcel, but once inside, you realize you are somewhere different. The owners are serious about their food and beverages. This is a family-owned establishment, with all four contributing daily. I highly recommend the duck fat fries. The beer selection is thoughtful and fresh. There are beer dinners every month with wine dinners thrown in occasionally.

This is a great stop if you want to try a huge selection and talk to some knowledgable folks about beer. The place is a bit on the darker side full of wood and brass. Food is some of the best I have had at a pub, lobster grilled cheese with duck fat fries is a favorite for lunch when I am looking to get away from work. They have an amazing "beer book" full of bottles sorted by country/state. It is actually almost overwhelming with all the choices.

Located in a standalone building in a prefab block I wasn’t expecting much but this place is pretty awesome. Lots of brass and wood on the inside. They have 24 taps plus over 150 bottles a few of them pretty hard to get. They have a nice range of local and national crafts plus a few Brewdogs, Mikellers, and Nogne as well. They also have weekly beer nights on Mondays. The food is fantastic. The portions aren’t large but they’re incredibly flavorful. The prices aren’t cheap but it’s a really cool experience.

Nice place! Really solid tap selection- had barrel aged Ten Fidy the first time I was there. Do lots of brewery events with Stone, Flying Dog, etc. Food is solid. Ambiance is a little strange; they were trying a little too hard for the dark, cozy atmosphere. Still good, very good selection, good food. Definitely check it out.

Loong bar with extra tables, restaurant next door. Service was OK, they were friendly but looked a little stressed on a Sunday afternoon. Food was outstanding. Beer selection was very good, with lots of local stuff plus an occasional rarity. Good prices. Worth going out of your way for.
