Well-lighted and yet cozy, nice long bar, plenty of seating. Food is good - burgers are on the small side, but they will stick to your ribs. Beer is what you're there for anyway, and their brews range from OK to excellent. Do ask for a taster - you'll love how they serve it! If you can, take a crowler home. Servers are alert and efficient, but friendly and welcoming. A must if you live in or near Durham, and recommended if you are visiting.

02-27-2013 - A busy, noisy clean place. The burgers are too small in size for the price plus cheese is a dollar extra. I had a beer sampler and the aromas were difficult to detect, but they were good tasting beers. This is a place worth stopping at.

I came here for lunch on 27.10.2015. Only had a burger, which was outstanding. Unfortunately I could not taste the beers. The ambiance of the brewhouse and the restaurant were mediocre. I heard the beers are quite good. Will come back.

Burgers looked good. Didn’t eat. Beers not as much. Flight was inexpensive enough.

Visited on National Hamburger Day. Only the US could have something like that. Looks like this place used to be an old fountain/pharmacy sort of thing. Medium sized countertop bar to the left. Open space. Brewhouse visible behind glass. Order food from the kitchen straight ahead. Or order food from the bar, which is what I did. Burgers are small but filling and very creative. My veggie burger was a polenta burger with tasty toppings and sauce, first time I’ve seen that. Lots of students drinking massive towers of beer. Everyone else had pints. They have pre-filled crowlers of a small selection of their beers, and growlers of almost everything. Friendly staff. Worth a stop.

Ate and drank here a couple of times while in town on business. Sat at the bar for a while and then in the little back alcove to watch the World Cup, and service was good in both areas. While it’s more of a hipster/family burger joint that collided with a small brewery, that’s completely fine with me. It’s really unpretentious, they locally source many products and the beef is grass-fed. I even sampled some locally produced dog-food made from the spent grain, and it was pretty tasty. However what irritated me is the "artisanal burgers" that are "cooked to order". Both times I couldn’t order a medium-rare burger. Both times, they insisted that it MUST BE either rare or medium, but not medium-rare. WTF? If I prefer half-bloody burgers to full bloody or burnt, what’s the big deal burger artiste? I can get a m-r burger at any number of places that charge less and they taste better than yours. But now I’ll simmer down from my burger rant and get to the most important thing, since this is ratebeer. The overall saving grace for this place rating is the beer. The 4 beers I had were pretty good overall and they seem to have a decent rotating variety, based on 2 visits 3 weeks apart. The service tried to do as best they could, and prices were reasonable. The duck fat fries were greasy, floppy and a bit tasteless compared to other places where I’ve indulged, but the two different burgers I had were decent, if unmemorable.

Had a great time here last night, closing the place down. Barley wine was solid, as was the porter. Pale ale, IPA and amber were ok, but the you go there for the food and interesting atmosphere. Burger was very good.
