I've been coming here for years. Great beer selection, awesome staff, and always a good crowd. Food is nothing to shout about, but its fresh and at a good price. Always a good vibe in this place.

Come grab a beer from their extensive beer list that will leave your taste buds drunk with flavor. Finish it off with one of their excellent burgers, and relax in an atmosphere that makes you feel like you're friends with everyone in the bar. Awesome place to hang out!

OK I'll admit I'm not a fan of hipsters and was very worried about stepping in here. But this place rocks. The beers are a nice wide selection of various craft beers and to be honest the burgers were amazing. I thought with the blue printed menu that things would be a little low end.... Wrong these burgers are super delicious and the staff is really friendly. The staff knows their beer well and can steer you on the right direction. The taps hanging from the ceiling are cool and really add to the overall enjoyment. Well worth the time and experience. Thank you to the waitress who steered me to that amazingly caramel after toned esb !!! Now just get nee my sour and I'll be happier ;)

Great local pub. Outstanding selection of US craft beers, micros you may never have heard of. Staff knows their beer. Taps rotate on a quite regular basis - no worries about old kegs here! Kitchen is limited (no deep fryer here) but Really good burgers, soups change day to day ( I dig the carrot kielbasa, and tomato Gorgonzola...). Local flavor is strong, in a good way - always easy to strike up a conversation at the bar..... Outside seats in good weather. They have special nights which focus on a brewery, or on a style of beer (the IPA fest is great)..my favorite is " honey the Parkway ruined Thanksgiving".... Overall a wonderful local pub with great beers and good pub fare....
