Great selection of beers and ciders

We had lunch there today. The choice of beers and ciders was amazing. The food is hearty but not exceptional. The service was great.

Went on a Sunday, when it was Texas Pint Night. Almost all Texas Pints were $3.00 each. My English friend was impressed with the price and says you'd never see anything like this back home. We went back on a Monday thinking that it was $3.00 Texas pint night again (we got our days mixed up), only to find that... More

Lots and lots of tasty beer! I tried the Maredson 10 Triple Belgium 10% beer and loved it. Also, got the hunger farmer, which is high quality cheeses and meats and etc as side taste dish, which was great. Prices are reasonable and staff are knowledgeable and friendly. They can definitely help you choose beer that you like because there... More

Good place for light dinner before a baseball game. The beer selection was wonderful. And, at 5:30, the IPA's were $4. WOW. Had the Grilled cheese and the Hippie Hollow. Both were very good and reasonable for downtown. No wonder they have been in business for 15 Years. Will return next ballgame.

The hubby and I stopped in after a game to get a bite and a couple of beers. The beer menu is quite extensive and sure to please. We ordered a couple appetizers, he got the wings and I got the tots. The wings were tasty as were the loaded tots; however, they were luke warm. It was almost like... More

Lots of beer selections! Noisy, but that's normal for a popular place like this. Service was excellent, and everyone knew a lot about the beers that they offered. The waitresses were friendly. Here's the topper! I spilled my beer, and they refilled it, free of charge. Good bar food selection as well

The reason we went here was for the amount of beers they have to offer, although I'm not a beer connoisseur, a colleague of mine is and he was more than pleased. Me too, you can get a lot of different beers here and of course something to eat. The service was very good and the staff is very polite.... More

I admit I am not really a beer drinker, except for a stout when visiting Ireland or the UK during the autumn and winter months, however this place rocks for various ciders as well. They have game night when the bar tender acts like Alec Tribec and young college age guys and gals shout out answers to trivia. The menu... More
