We arrived here on a recommendation for TGIF when the Flames are playing. Tough to get a seat but Tyler McC went above and beyond the call of duty to help us get a table for two on the bar level. Did you say 100+ domestic and import beers on tap?! A San Fran's Rogue Dead Man's ale on tap to start was fresh and tasty. Interested in the sport of people watching? Here's a great venue; mostly a younger Friday yuppie crowd but nobody feels unwelcome; you can start a conversation with almost anyone. The half-order beer-can chicken with mashed spuds was meal enough for hungry men; moreover, it was delicious. Overall, a good craft brewery with an extraordinary beer selection and a strong supporting kitchen.

This place is a dream come true for anyone that likes beer. With 100 beers on tap, you get a great selection with a lot of variety. If you are not sure what you want when you first get there, i would suggest the beer sampler. it allows you to try a few different kinds and find out which one you like before you jump into a full pint. The food is right on par with the beer selection. Here you will find home cooked huge portions of food. i would suggest the Fish Tacos and Mac and Cheese. But from the looks of the plates going past me, I don't think you could make a mistake with anything on the menu. The service is great and the place has a great atmosphere for anything from work party to night out to watch the game. Definitely try it out if you are in the downtown area.

Went on a sat night (jan 26) - Craft is a happening place for sure! Watched the flames game on ine of mny well positioned tv's? Kayla, our server, was unreal! Always there just when you needed her! She did not make us feel guilty one bit for holding two tables until our friends showed up for my sisters bday despite the fact there was already limited seating by 6pm due the flames game most likely. The music was a great mix and at the end of the night people were dancing in between the tables! (No dance floor). To cap the night off the manager let us order a quick basket of food just as the kitchen was closing...he snuck the order in...our party had a fab time! The food was terrific too! This will be a go-to spot for a while! Also, the age of the crowd was mixed which was nice...22-45

Well spaced tables and high ceilings allow for easy conversation which when backed up with a fantastic seclection of beers and good reasonably priced food make for a great time. Service was excellent.

What a great way to spend New Year's Day. We went with 10 of us and each person enjoyed the best ever buffet. One of our guests stated loudly and clearly that it was the best prime rib he had ever eaten. This immediately prompted 6 others to go and get more food. There was something for everyone. It gave you an opportunity to try different foods and fish. Everything was good. The dessert table was a hit. Check it out next year. I believe they also have a few buffets through the year. Next I'm trying their beer pairing. I hear amazing things, but have been unable to go.
