I stopped in for a quick beer this evening and was glad to see a variety of beers on tap. Very friendly staff. Fun and relaxed atmosphere. The paw paw sour, Humidity Pale Ale, and Working Man's Lunch chocolate brown ales were all good beers.

I was visiting my daughter in Durham and stopped in for a beer. OK, I stopped in several times. Very fun local brewery, tasty brew, friendly and knowledgeable barpersons. I just kept coming back, don'tcha know. Ping-pong, darts, games, beer. Somebody stop me.

If you like beer this is a great place. Friendly bartender and fabulous beer. Ping pong, some fun maps on the wall and indoor and outdoor seating make it a relaxing place to have a cold one (or three).
