Vast selection of beer, probably the best in the area. I am a wing guy and the wings are up to my standards. Can’t say i’ve had anything else on the menu though. Definitely come here if you love beer.

If you are looking to try beers from all over the world, this is the place to go. They had 17 beers on tap but over 360 different bottles in their "cellar". Most of the trappist ales were available here. The beer menu is extensive, well organized, and easy to follow. Another thing that impressed me was that each beer was served in the appropriate type glass. The only negative was that all of the beer was cold. They really should keep some of it at "cellar" temperature. Our server, John, was outstanding and knowledgable, especially about the beers. His recommendations were on point and we loved drinking some of what he suggested based on our likings. We sat outside and ate "pub food" that was tasty, well-prepared, and reasonably priced. On Sunday’s, a reggae band plays wonderful music to listen to while you dine and drink. I had the opportunity to speak with Tom, the owner, on my way out. He was very knowledgable and friendly. I highly recommend this place to all beer connoisseurs. I will be back again many times over.

Even though this establishment is really out of the way, it’s one that must be visited. The beer selection alone is worthy. When I stopped by, finally for the fist time, I was greeted with Sierra Nevada Anniversary, two Founders beers, Spatan and a couple of Belgians. The bottle selection is even more impressive. The service from the bartenders was top-notch. They were friendly, knowlegable and didn’t rush you. They even recommended a few selections for me to enjoy. I didn’t eat on this fist visit, but the food that passed by me looked very delicious. Even on a Sunday they had a live band playing some Island-inspirated music. I had a great time, if only for two hours. I’d love to visit here again. UPDATE: This is now one of my go-to places for beer, and for food! I loved the place so much that I had to take my wife, and she even loved it. Now she’s asking to go back every now and again. I have to update my rating on just the food. Obviously the beer is the biggest draw, but the food ain’t bad either! Get the wings! If you love hot and spicy stuff, order the wings. They are absoutely top-notch! I had the C-13 wings, the hottest they make. I love hot food and can take a great amount of spiciness, but these had me in tears and sweating. And they were incredibly delicious! The crab quesadillas are awesome too. Now, don’t just go to drink; go to eat, as well!
Very good selection of bottled beers (but no Ukrainian beers which is what I was specifically looking for). While I’ve heard about the poor service, we sat at the bar and got great service and lots of knowledgable suggestions from the bartender. They need to turn up the music a little bit once the older folks have left after dinner and its the drinkers left at the establishment.

This place is in the middle of nowhere. However the beer selection is really nice. They definitely have the best beer selection in the area. But it is in the middle of nowhere. So, decent place, but I won’t be making the long trip to get here. Oh yeah, and they don’t take credit cards.
We are lucky enough to live close. A few years ago the waitstaff was a mix of blue plate waitresses and beer geeks. Now they all lean heavily to the beer geek side. Tom can answer pretty much any beer question you toss him, and keeps the place well stocked. The food is good but after a few years of going there we are hoping that some new menu items will show up. (The specials are normally very good). Take cash and plan on spending a while, once you see the tap and bottle list, you will want to stay a while.
