This place has such a cool feel to it. It is modern and trendy with plenty of space and long wood tables to gather around. I wish there were a few more food options, but the food we had was very good. I tried the oysters on the half shell and the black salt and mignonette were delish. The fish tacos and chicken tacos were yummy with the right spice and flavors.

I love trying locally brewed beers in different cities so I was a little bummed that there were only three that were brewed in house.

Overall a cool local spot. I'll be back

We came here as part of the Paddle for Pints event. The beer was good and the nacho's were excellent! Had only a short time here but managed to sample 4 beers. We liked the two that were actually made by Rare Bird. the Amber and the Whip-or-will (similar to oberon but with a nicer kick)

Ate dinner here with my family. Very comfy wrap around booth held all 7 of us. Very inexpensive food! Very good food (gourmet quality). Good selection of beers and decent cocktail selection. I will be returning.

We had nachos and several different beers. We all ate and loved the nachos with very good tasting pork belly pieces with them. I had a rye IPA and it was very good.

Have been here 3 or 4 times since it opened and haven't been disappointed. Unlike alot of the micro-brews, they actually serve 'other' types of drinks (such as wine or mixed drinks) instead of beer-only, which is a nice touch.

Last time here, we shared a number of appetizers and the food was quite good. Everyone was happy with all the choices.

Location is also good. Within easy walking distance of the downtown core.

Looking for something different with a nice atmosphere, give it a try.
