Interesting place. Non-descript building and entrance. Interior is cozy with some booths and a small bar at the far end. Everyone knew everyone, but they welcomed me in and were very friendly. They apparently had a falling out with COOP so they no longer offer their beers. In fact, the taps were just common national craft and non-craft brands. They did have a few local beers in cans, so that kept me happy. Food was delicious, small menu, kitchen closes early, but it really hit the spot. Fun place, but not really a craft beer destination at the moment.

Nice enough bar. Good patio setting. Indoors can be awfully smoky. Definitely appeals to the local college crowd, and late nights it’s basically overrun with frat guys. The service is a little slow, but knowledgeable and nice enough. Good beer selection, but nothing jaw-dropping. On a beer note, one word of warning: this place is not for hopheads. The last time I was there, out of dozens of beers on tap and in the coolers, there was exactly one IPA (Avery IPA) available.

I’ve visited this place a few times and generally have a pretty good time here. A good selection of beers on tap and in bottles. The place is generally clean, but can be smoky at times as well. I haven’t tried the food. Bartenders were friendly and helpful if you had questions. Some of the beers are overpriced compared to what you can get them for at other bars. A good place to enjoy a few beers.
