    Um...this menu design seems kinda racist to me. Why is the caricature for "dark" beers the only one holding a gun? In other news, free WiFi (no wi-Fi password) here, but few outlets.

    Black bean vegan chili for the win! Excellent brews, small menu but everything is good! Cozy atmosphere, outside sitting. They host Bear with a Scientist every month. Service is not always the best.

    The "Ham" Burger made w/ ground pork is delicious and the constantly rotating lineup of locally made beers will keep you checking back. If you're a veggie, don't worry, they have a great menu for you

    Brisket was smoked so good I didn't bother with the sauce. Baked beans were incredible. The smoked cole slaw was not to my liking but may just be me. Service was attentive and friendly.

    Great beers on tap with additional Bombers and Cans for sale. Burgers are amazing. ..gouda grits were awesome. ..food was a little slow to come out but worth the wait.

    Bo & Luke BBQ sauce was gross. Cole slaw was not good. Green beans were OK, tasted like they were from a can. Pulled pork was OK, but cold to Luke warm when they brought it out. Service was great.

    Nothing at our table was worth finishing. The chips seemed stale and cold. The Monte Cristo was barely a grilled cheese and the sprout burger had a wierd taste and texture.

    SLOW service. Puckery beer. $9 Nachos feed 1. Forgot sauce on beer chicken entree. The only thing going for them is the location. All hail BBC.
