Been twice for beer. A lot of great choices. Had food this time. The menu reads like items are beer battered and made there. All of our items were frozen items, not made fresh...chicken straps, onion rings, the coleslaw is flavorless and they forgot the cheese in the beer cheese soup. Service was slow. Portions small. Go for the beer... More

This is a great place to stop and have a beer and or something to eat. They brew their own beer and always have some new ones to try. Quite a variety also. Check out their web site for the latest list. The food is much better than regular bar food. I usually go for lunch and they have lunch... More

This is my husband's number one choice as he loves the beer. I'm not a beer drinker but enjoy the food. It's like a local bar, very comfortable and friendly staff! We even have a kegerator now so we can purchase their beer for home.

Regular Hangout on the weekends. A lot of beer options. Menu is on the small side but should be able to find something you would like. Sandwiches burgers cetera. Service can be spotty at times. You have to have a lot of patience.

All the beers are home made and good to go. The food is just your run of the mill but is cooked with care and taste good. The staff is nice and friendly, looks like all the hippie drug dealer staff from years past are gone. The only down fall is the bathrooms are nasty and smell bad. I would... More

I'm guessing this place stays in business from concert goers and it's interesting beers. The food was average, sorta. I'll start with the positive: prices were reasonable, our waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable about the beers. Try the jalapeño beer - couldn't drink a whole glass but what a fun flavor! Everyone's food was eh. Nothing seemed homemade or... More
