06.11.2008. A nice brewpub with a good selection of beers. We were in a hurry to get to the airport and desided to grab a burger and a beer. The vaitress had all the time in the world and was realy slow. But, the beer and the burger was nice!
Quite large for a brewpub. Nice patio with tables outside (more or less because it’s inside a mall or something). Friendly staff but not very knowledgeable about the beers. The food was great and way too much. Quite some beers on tap. Bit posh place but in this case ok. I don’t like all the TV screens but that’s standard in the USA as far as I’ve seen.
your typical brew bar, reminds me of a TGIF, Ruby Tuesdays, or a Applebees. there was a ball game on at the time and the video was in HD, while the audio was in analog, so you got the 10-20 seconds delay from the sound to the picture.
service was okay, the server wanted to make sure she got a tip, "you don’t want any change back, right?" and seemed to be a little pushy on wanting us to eat.
selection was only their brews, about 8 of them, and they did not offer a sampling of any.
overall was not that impressed, and the beer was average at best.
Located near the center of downtown in an uninspiring shopping center. Typical Rock Bottom. Standard, but decent food. Average Their standard line up beers were average, but they had a few above average seasonals. They also had a cask version of their red ale. Nice patio seating. Service was good.
Popped in for some sampling at 10pm on a Wednesday night ... not too busy. Sat at the bar and got a sampler. Wait staff was polite enough but not what I’d call attentive. Beers were fine, but nothing really spectacular. You’re better off with a few other establishments if on a time crunch. I probably wouldn’t have gone here (still not been to the Pittsburgh location), except it was only a 15 minute walk from my hotel and I didn’t feel more adventurous at that point. Highlight of the visit ... sat next to a guy at the bar who was in Seattle for the first time, up from L.A. on a conference. Turns out he was originally from Williamsport PA and his brother-in-law was the lawyer who did our house closing. Freaky.
They were out of the IPA when I stopped in. The beers are OK, but far from outstanding. The lunchtime crowd was thin, so the service was great. The one and only time that I’ve gotten a BBQ’d pork sandwich with coleslaw as an ingredient in the sandwich. What’s up with that? Pretty good after I scraped the mayo-laden cabbage off.
Big place that was packed to the rafters when I was in. Some loud (not too loud) clubby type of music. I only grabbed the IPA, which was excellent. The food looked good, but I didn’t have any. I might enjoy this place in the afternoon, but at night it isn’t my scene.
