Been here a couple times. Went on Friday night and was disappointed. 10 or 12 taps, practically all of them were ale, pale ale, IPA, DIPA. One cider, one saison I think. Zero stouts or porters. Pet peeve when I got to a bar and...More
Have been here before and decided to give it a second chance. We love the location, people and the vibe, unfortunately the beers are just poor in taste. The four of us tried all their offerings and none were anything we would try again....
