Beer and BBQ

Again I think I'd love this place more if I liked BBQ more. As it is the craft beers are always good to try and the food is nice. The others I go with are bigger BBQ fans and love it more. The only takeaway I found was the live entertainment that happened to be there last time. It isn't... read more

I hesitated with what to rate this. The service was worse then poor. Four of us were seated with only three menus and did not receive a fourth. We waited a very long time for beverages. Once we had been served our food- with three napkins and three forks for five people (a friend joined) we were not checked on... More

This is a nice place to try lots of different local beers and good food. The smoked foods are excellent. A cross between a sports bar, a pub, and a brasserie. Bring an appetite.

Hi Christine thank you for the review of our craft beer taphouse. I am sorry that you found our food to be a 3 out of 5. I hope you come try something off the BBQ menu as that has not won you over, perhaps one of our homemade burgers, some of our fusion tacos or the famous mussels? Many... More

Had an amazing meal and tried a few different pints. Troy and Carly deserve all the praise they get at this pub. It is something that has been earned and not handed to them. You guys rock. Your waitress are very also easy to talk with and are very friendly. Looking forward to many more enjoyable meals.

Great selection of craft beers. The rib appetizer is a small meal well worth trying. Service was as good as can be.

This charming building, nestled at a mountain base just across from the Columbia river serves an interesting variety of craft beers on tap. Famous for their giant wings, I sample the house rub. Plenty of meat, one pound was enough for a meal and quite tasty, I also endured in the poutine which was a very basic poutine served with... More
