Dan would like to offer up a 4-star. The beer selection was good, a mix between recognizable and regional brews. Lots of tv's for game nights. I only went with the grilled cheese and tomato soup (it was a chilly night and a long work day) and Dan had the chicken sandwich. Both were good and plenty hearty. We are... More

One of my must stop locations when I am anywhere near North Charlotte or Concord area. Excellent service and the craft beer selections are one of the best in the area. Absolutely love the homemade pretzel appetizer. When I get a salad to go with it, I don't feel as bad. Salad selection is really good too.

I have spent many times over the years, drinking all the delicious beers that are offered here. Its always a nice vibe whether I am with friends or by myself.

The food and great, and they have like 300 beers on tap, which is nice. But I have to tell you my favorite thing is the pretzels! They are big and soft traditional style pretzels with a butter coating and sprinkled with salt. I get them with a side of queso, they go great with a beer, btw.

I got a 12"pizza and my partner got a burger called "The Duke". Both were very fresh and tasty. We also got chips and queso as our appetizer. The chips were a bit thick, but the tastiness of the queso more than made up for it. And as thick and creamy as the queso was, it was probably good that... More

I love this place. I always have a great time when I go here and get to try yummy beers. I'm a sour fiend and they have plenty on tap. I also had a chocolate cherry stout. Nobody else liked it but I loved it. The food is good too. I definitely recommend it and join their beer club.

We attended a private party in their back room hosted by a friend. We had the BEST service. Two servers assisted our area and were very prompt and friendly. It was a great experience and would recommend to anyone wanting a private space for a party.
