Great place for a beer with always a new selection. I have been going for 12 months. Only issue, they can’t seem to keep good help. Turnover way to high. Effects the Ambiance "- the mood, character, quality, tone, atmosphere, etc., particularly of an environment". I guess they rotate staff like their beers.
Great place. They get almost every beer that comes into Ohio. Hundreds of bottles and a rotating tap list that is always awesome. As far as food goes, they don’t serve food but you can bring your own if you want and they have a food truck at most of their tasting events. Staff is friendly and very knowledgeable. Give it a try.
As far as selection of beer goes, it is great. They have a solid bottle selection featuring some of the greats from every beer style. There draft list is always full of everything from a local favorite (peanut butter cup porter) to some not-so-easy to get such as the current I want, but can not have all the time-- Three Floyds.
Now, here is where it gets bad. I have been here 5 times since they started draft service. Three out of five I had the unfortunate luck of dealing with the rudest, most dull, and arrogant bar tender ever. I tried to spark a simple conversation, asking about the taste of a beer on draft and he nearly treated me as if I killed his grandmother. He mumbled out an answer and then began to talk to his friend who was a patron at the bar. I can get over this, BUT, each time I was there I tipped him 40% of the check average (I am a fellow bartender and always appreciate a bigger than expected tip).
HE NEVER EVEN SAID THANK YOU!
This happened the firs time, so I thought maybe he was busy and forgot. The second time he failed to produce one speck of gratitude toward my generosity. So, just on principle, I again, one last time tipped him and he failed to thank me. I’m sorry my friend, but when you rely on people to tip you for a living, you must show gratitude with a simple "thank you". Is it that hard?
Very disappointed with the staff at this place. I will never again step foot in the establishment when this snuffy, thick framed glasses kid is working ever. Not again, not ever. I hate to go on a rant, but I am furious about it because I enjoy this place, but just can’t continue to give business to a person such as him.
Good luck if you decide to go there to enjoy a beer and talk to a reasonable bartender.
Neat little tasting room and good bottle shop, but a step behind Lizardville in price and tap selection, and service. Some good taps on, but you have to find them yourself as list badly out of date. Most beers sold are refrigerated, and few six packs broken up.
The best beer bar in north east Ohio if you are in the Kent area. They carry plenty of rares and the selection changes weekly. If you are trying to have a beer you have never had before whether you are an experienced craft beer drinker or a newbie than this is the spot. I go here once a week and have never had a bad experience.
