A tiny front that is easy to miss this place gets bigger as you get further and even has an outdoor area. It is dive bar ish with some great craft beer. Very local, it didn’t take long to strike up conversations with the staff and people at the bar. Selection seems to be well curated and prices are good. This is not for everyone, but definitely a great place for me.
This is my favorite spot to hang out and have a beer. Not overly crowded and a well thought out tap selection Bottles of things that sell out elsewhere hang around just a bit longer here (fine by me :) ) Burc is always friendly and always tells it like it is.A few TVs and lots of board games for entertainment. Don’t have food but they allow you to bring or order your own. All the other customers tend to be super friendly. Check the place out. Cheers
I’m lucky to have this place so close to home. Always has great beer on tap as well as a great selection of bottles. I have known these guys for bringing in something special as well from time to time, that you can’t really find anywhere else. Their website is never updated, which is a little upsetting to me, so I typically have to go in and be pleasantly surprised with the selections they have. Maybe that’s a good thing, I don’t know. Though I feel like I would be in more often if I was easier notified of the stuff they bring in. This isn’t a review of their website though so I will leave this out. Friendly, knowledgeable staff every time, and they also have table soccer and a bunch of games to keep you entertained if the beer isn’t quite enough. Overall a fun place. I’ll keep going back.
Glad to have this shop on the North end. Solid bottle selection, especially after the expansion. Nice, busy bar with a small but well curated selection of taps. Always something I want to try when I pass through. Staff is great and there is a loyal local crew who hangs out here. Not sure it is worth a trip up here just for this joint if you’re just visiting town, but if you’re in the North end this is a wonderful spot.
Used to stop at this place here and there when it first opened as it was on my work commute. It has evolved over time for the better. Added draft, changed owner, moved to a larger spot, added more draft...and now I stop in regularly. Draft list isn’t the largest but it is very well thought out and changes daily. Always a nitro, cider, lager and a couple of hoppy beers mixed in with other great options. Great place to find bottles that are usually gone in a day at other places. The service is great and worth a stop if in the area.
13 taps with some very nice things rotating through. Outdoor seating on lovely Lake City Way. Plenty of happy regulars. Burc is great. Occasional cribbage and retro-gaming nights.
For bottles, it’s hard to discern much of an organizational scheme, and the price isn’t always obvious. For whatever reason, prices on bottles tend to run a few percent higher than other bottle shops in town.
Growler special on Monday. Website frequently updated with current tap list, and facebook frequently updated with current specials, events, and recent arrivals.
definitely the best bottle shop and beer bar in the area. Burc, the regular barkeep, is easily one of the most friendly and knowledgeable beer geeks in town. with an awesome selection of rotating drafts and one of the best bottle selections around, this is my default option for craft beer.
