    Barrel Head Brewhouse has finally fired up the kettles and made their own house beer. A saison, a black kolsch, and a roggenbier are on offer now. Be sure to check them out. Read more

    Plan your entrance accordingly. A line forms outside on the hour & at the halves. Order a basket of fries to snack on while waiting for your table; they come piping hot w/ spicy mustard.

    Fun spot to grab a tasty cocktail or house made beers. Food is creative and delicious. Great for groups or to catch the game with plenty of TVs.

    Breakfast was awesome! I got the brisket hash skillet and cleaned my plate. I almost wish the portions were bigger! Fun atmosphere.

    Lots of good brews. Poutine wasn't most authentic I've ever had but I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    Good brews, especially nice variety on the darker beers. Pretzel was small but the fries were tasty.

    Cool atmosphere...the torpedo housing the taps is cool. Don't get the trail mix...not very good and too small portion for $5.

    Avoid the cristo sandwiches. Overall good food, but portions aren't large. They are clearly just getting their footing. Will try again in a couple weeks.

    Very sports bar, so can get really loud. The black IPA was good, and the chicken dish was worth getting.

    Unfortunately all of the house beer in their sampler was pretty awful. Felt bad but our waitress was good enough to swap it out for a guest beer. A bit pricey and noisy but waitstaff is friendly.

    Decent selection of craft beers on tap. Do not order the Trail Mix! (It's rather small and very salty.) Should have house brews in 3-4 weeks.

    The craft beers are a hike. They have decent food. It's more of a sports bar

    Great selection of food and liquor. They need to figure out a way to dampen the noise.
