Nice little place located on Preston Road near the intersection with State Highway 121. Features a very nice tap selection and occasionally has hard-to-find, rare beers on tap. Also has tap nights where you keep the brewery’s glass. Food is above average for bar food and the menu is fairly extensive. Prices are about the same as other beer-centric bars. Definitely one of the better beer bars in the Metroplex and the best in Plano.

One of my favorite area bars for many reasons. Their food is fresh and made from scratch - they have one of the top 5 burgers in the area in my opinion. The owner and most of the staff are friendly and quite knowledgable and they usually have a nice selection of top notch brews on tap. Check out their periodic beer pairing dinners for a real treat!
Easy place to get too off of 121...Nice, easy dim lite easy going atmosphere with friendly bar folk. only open a year and have a very nice selection of draft and bottled beer. I really love the fact they push the Texas brews, great happy hour pricing....The food is good as well.....I noticed some dart boards in the back as well, I like that.....I will certainly visit this place again!

Strip center bar that is very well decorated on the interior. Upscale and very dark with lots of wood. Nice tap and bottle beer list, with a wide variety of micros and imports with Texas drafts on special. Nothing really uncommon that I could see. Service was good but the tables between the bar and booths are really shaky-my table and the table next to me had beer spilled by just barely touching the table. Food was good-my partner had a nice salad and I had a humongous cheese plate. Reasonable pricing. Good stop for far north D/FW.

Have now been many times. Food is so good my wife doesn’t mind going to a bar. VERY loud (but I am old).
Service is good and generally attentive. Big selection with several new things on tap
Very good bratwurst.
Could we pad the booths?
03/13 updated - PAD the damn booths. still loud; bumped up food; one of best hamburgers I ever had; still great brats. broad selection of beers with seasonal rotation.
Visited on a Monday night with bu11zeye and angrypirate06. Shopping mall pub. Plenty of parking. Very clean inside, a bit of an upscale feel to it (for a "pub"). Not very crowded (which I like). Relaxed atmosphere. Full bar. Good selection of Texas beers and decent beers overall. I feel like they don’t exactly know what they are serving as I got a full PINT of Bigfoot for $5. Didn’t try the food, but it looked and smelled good. Would stop by if I was in the area.
I work in the area and was just looking for an after work alternative to the Legacy Shops area, and I think I found it. Good beer selection, and even better food. Holy grail batman, the burgers were amazing. I am not a seafood guy, but my buddy said the fish was great, also. I am not a beer nerd (see expert) and neither was my waitress, but she was very helpful, and let us sample quit a few beers. I will be back!
