Very trendy, lots of beer choices but nothing that really jumps off the menu. The food is pretty tasty, but everything seems a little too uptight. Go during happy hour for some great food deals.

Not worth the trip. The shopping center it’s in is nice enough, but if you get seated outside, forget about clean air or ever seeing your server again. The beer selection is as dismal as this chain can muster.
Great concept, but the execution is a disappointment. Lots o’ beers, but I have often had to resort to my third or fourth choice from the menu before finding one currently tapped. Some of the less popular choices also seem to have been languishing in the cooler for a while. This place is a good pit stop when shopping on Colorado Blvd, but not worth it as a primary destination.
Supposedly 100+ beers on tap, and you can count the number of ones I’d pay money to try on one hand. The largest selection of mediocre beers, not necessarily even swill, but all very commonly found most everywhere else. If you consider going here, you’d better walk the four blocks over to Lucky Baldwin’s first and check out their beerlist. Food was ok, but a bit pricey and the service was decent. I got a pint of Arrogant Bastard for $2.75 because it was happy hour, so that was nice. Otherwise, this place just does not have any rare finds at all, nothing from Craftsman or Alesmith, and the only Stone beers are the IPA and Arrogant Bastard.

A great selection of beers. At least 50 on tap. Their food is good too. Its a little pricey because you’re paying for the "hip and trendy" environment. The servers are not that knowledgeable about the beers- in fact, they suck.
