Besides being closed on Monday I can’t think of something bad to say about the place. Excellent tap lineup and a great bottle selection, also. They actually care about the quality of the beer in your glass, which is something not all beer bars tend to do. The food was excellent and if I didn’t like beer I’d go back for just that but i love beer so I’m heading back for another pint. Pretty busy when I was there (following alefest), the live music was very nice and at the proper level to keep conversation going. I love it.
Nice selection and more upscale than I thought it would be. Definitely not the place to go wearing a muscle shirt. (No I wasn’t wearing one). It wasn’t very crowded, which was nice, but I doubt this place would be very comfortable if it was. Good food, good service, and great beer selection.
I just heard about this place a few days ago so decided to try it out. It was much nicer on the inside than I expected. The service was fairly quick and the bartender was knowledgeable and enjoyed talking about the different brews available. Selection is great considering what else is in the area. They had some really hard to find draft beers, such as the Chimay White and Northcoast Scrimshaw Pils. Never seen them on tap before. As mentioned by glkaiser, was overjoyed when I saw Bells Hopslam on the menu, but disappointed when I was told it wasn’t available. A definite necessity within the Dayton area.
If we were grading on a scale to keep in mind the lack of any other good beer bars in this area, this would be a slam dunk 20 overall must hit if in the area.
Several midwest/eastern craft brew gems on tap that I was hoping to find, including Two Hearted, Oberon, Southern Tier Un-Earthly...
Solid selection of US craft and imports.
The fried chicken was freaking awesome. Kitchen and beer service was slow...they f’d up our dinner orders, but they made up for it w/ a good discount. Server and management was nice, and very apologetic about the mixups (Took about an hour to get our food).
They were out of the first 2 beers I ordered Dragon’s Milk and Hop Slam. I just stuck with Two Hearted after that....
Easy to find location on a corner of strip mall. Clean inside with wood bar in the middle and table on the right and left. Patio on the side. Taps on the wall behind bar and coolers on the side. Freindly service with good knowledge of selection of 30 taps on the day I was there. All beers above average drinkable beers. Good food menu and the Fish and Chips lunch was a good portion and very good flavor. I enjoyed the visit.
The staff knows their beers! A bonus! Great selection of crafts and drafts. Look at the board to find the specials. I usually get the naked wings for an appetizer and then go for the ribs a couple of pints later. My wife looks at ABV for her beer choices. Great sample flight selections!
This place is excellent. Its quite during weekdays and has an excellent little diniing area with dark wood tones and gives it an excellent atmosphere, it also has flat screen tv’s around so you can watch a game or two. The bar area could be larger but it works. The bartenders are awesome and they know there beer, and the servers have always been great. The food is delicious and the beer selection is massive and awesome, they are adding flights for sampling and they have a great guide for you to look through and decide on your beverage.
