A mediocre neighborhood brewpub. A selection of several taps, all of which are drinkable, some are better. The bar service is always pretty good, sometimes faster. The food is good. They also have live music sometimes. If youíre going to go here, do it on Tuesdays.

(Midwest í12 backlog) Visited 14/09/2012. Pretty big place, slowly half-filled for happy hour. Located downtown, an easy stroll from the UVA campus. Nice, slightly clinical big bar area, with glass wall opening up onto fermentors. About 10 own offerings on tap, 1.25/4oz samples and good happz hour pint prices. Beers are in the upper mid range of brewpub bland, clean with potential. Tasty snacks, e.g. well done nachos. Friendly down-to-earth barmaid.

We walked here, and easy reach from the mall, but there is also a bit of street parking and some pay lots. The place is large, with a long bar that runs the length. We did flights, reasonably priced. The beer was OK, but nothing to write home about. Friendly staff. Didnít try the food.

Bizarrely empty during my 11pm visit on a Friday night. Maybe the townies went into hiding? Anyway, the layoutís pretty cavernous. Plenty of places to sit and relax. The barís probably 50 feet long. On the plus side, South Street offered plenty of their house beers. Unfortunately, none of them were particularly impressive. Prices were acceptable, though certainly not cheap. The service was friendly, kind. This is the kind of place to accumulate ticks at then visit sporadically.

I enjoyed a meal and several beers at the brewpub in the Spring of 2013. It had a nice, modern ambiance with plenty of open space, and the service was friendly and reliable. They had a respectable selection of their own brews, but nothing spectacular. The food was quite good and complimented the beer nicely. It had a fair and reasonable value, and was an enjoyable experience overall.

all of their beers that we tried were "ok", but none really stood out. we tried the hefeweizen, pilsner, belgian golden, i.p.a. and porter. all were serviceable, but not outstanding.

Stopped in here for a last beer before heading back to Richmond yesterday. I remember liking the beer here more before we started exploring craft more.This place had the best ambiance of all the places we visited, nice and cozy and with a little character. The service was speedy and friendly and she seemed to know her stuff/love beer. Nice selection of their own brews. Good prices ($3.5 every day until 6:30pm) but I didnít like their brew quite as well as the other places we visited. Too full to sample the menu, but what we saw going to other tables at least looked good.

Went on a Saturday night, and the place was too crowded for my tastes. Unfortunately that was the only night I could make it. Got a sample of all the brews they make, no board was offered, but the bartender was nice enough for a saturday night. My friends helped carry the 4oz taster glasses from the crowded bar to a neat little area with couches and a coffee table. All the brews I tried were pretty run of the mill, nothing too interesting or exciting. Fine, but Iíd like to see a bit of creativity at brewpubs. I was very excited for this, but overall, I was underwhelmed

So, I used to frequent this place years back, and I used to like it a lot more than I do now. Not to say that itís not good, but I feel like the brewers used to use a lot more creativity in developing their brews, and that they seem to play it safe now. The food is generally excellent, and the ambiance is great when they arenít so busy that there is only standing room.

Great selection. The staff knows beer... commence to beer snobbery when you go.
