Court Square has a beer list of about 130. Doesn’t mean they have 130 beers in stock... in fact, it probably means they have maybe half of those. I’ve gone in several times, and not once have I been able to get everything I ordered. Service is so-so. For being a beer-bar, it’s a bit of a no-no for the waitress to tell me she thinks all beer tastes like crap. Food is nothing special... I’d suggest eating elsewhere and going there to see if they actually have a couple beers you’ve never tried. Unfortunately, they give you this little 6-oz mug to pour your beer into. Ugh.

Parking isn’t the easiest, but there are a good number of parallel parking spots just around the corner. Very small bar that sits only a handful of people. Draft selection is also pretty small, usually containing one cider (Potter’s Craft more than likely), a classic German hefe, and a traditional bitters. The bottle menu is much more extensive, and you can generally find some gems, even if they’re not limited or special. The food is pretty good. Service is as well. I don’t go here frequently, but I’m definitely due for another visit.

Decent selection of beer at not unreasonable prices. Staff are very good in my experience, perhaps it helps that I am a sit at the bar and engage with people kind of person. Food is always good and I enjoy going there.

Based on my last visit about 1.5 years ago. Lengthly beer list but the first three I ordered were not in stock (nor were they on my previous visit about 6 months prior). The interior is brightly light, which doesn’t work to advantage. Food is overpriced and so-so. Go to Millers or some place instead.

Truely enjoyed this place 3.50 for a beer is very good. Many places will charge much more than that. The bartender was able to give in depth advice even to the history of IPAs. How many places do that? A little warm in the bar but it was ok. Will definately be a bar to go back to. DIdnt try the food so cant rate that.

Ambience is cozy, but confused. Beer list is lengthy, but the barkeep (the only one working) was unsure about what they actually had. Everything they do have is overpriced. Absolutely no draft beers for some reason (even though they have about 8 taps). The beers we did get were very old and stale, not the kinds of styles you want to age. Glassware was inappropriate for pretty much any style. Service was at times pushy and at other times seemed like they didn’t want their conversation interrupted. I avoided the food because I have heard it’s atrocius. Skip this place.
