Location was in a not so very nice part of town. Website was misleading when we went for a sandwich and beer at 9pm. Staff were indifferent. Better place to see live music and enjoy a drink.

First, the food and beer are great! But this is not a quick stop- we have a very long day of traveling and spent 1 1/2 hours here- mostly waiting for pizzas to cook. The owners were super-nice and apologetic. We had two misrepresentations with TripAdvisor: 1. If you use the map- it takes you to the wrong location and... More

There is always a great selection of beers on the board. The food is good. They have an assortment of sandwiches and munchies (nothing fried). I would recommend the pizzas. Just know this is a brewery first; food second.

Not for the food, although it is pretty good too! This is my favorite spot to go for beer! I definitely recommend it to tourists/visitors.

Wonderful atmosphere. This is the place to go to if you want good cold craft beer. The bartender was attentive and knowledgeable. A fun place.

It is one of the best places for fine local beers. They brew on site, and have a wide range of beers, bitter, ales, stouts. I'm happier taking friends in to the place now they have improved the bar upstairs rather than using the basement where it was a bit of a 'drinking den' (friendly all the same). Join the... More

Friendly and cute bartenders. Beer and pretzels were really good. Nothing special about the pizza. Thought there might be a live band but it was trivia night. Good fun!
