    Holy mother of draft and bottle beer lineups. Prepare to empty your wallet craft beer lovers!

  • Stacey H.

    Service is slow and self-seating makes getting a table a strategy game, but you'll put up with it because the food is awesome and the beer selection top-notch.

    Stacey Hanson · August 13, 2014
  • Matt M.

    The beer menu is extensive, focusing mostly on Belgians. If you're looking for something hoppy you're better served elsewhere.

    Huge beer selection

    Tons of beers on tap, including a Firkin pour! What's that, you say? A traditional cask ale that is served at cellar temperature and naturally less carbonated. It brings out different complex flavors

  • Sam G.

    Great panini, upscale pub food and beer selection. Get the Guinness float for desert!

    The fish and chips might be the best I've had. The manager, Kristina, knows her way around all the beers of this great beer destination.

    Top 5 beer pub in America. First come first serve so look for seat openings relentlessly.

    Service is pretty hit or miss - I suggest sitting at the bar and gazing at the bottles :)

    If you like beer, you should go. If you love beer, you have to go. Belgian inspired - over 60 taps and 500 bottles. Oh and the scotch selection isn't bad either!
