    Beer selection is excellent although I wish there were more Belgian styles on tap. Just personal preference. Plenty of rare-ish beers though and large local draft selection.

    Wow! This place has an overwhelming beer selection and variety of wines and liquors. If you can't find a drink you like, you probably have excessively high standards, my friend. Foods pretty good too.

    Awesome beer list. They have improved communicating outages. Great food - I had the spinach brie salad with steak. Very good. As seen in other tips the waiter had no clue about beer, mixing styles etc

    The local cider is amazing. Our server was terrific, though the front of house were less than friendly. The food (we had burgers/frites) was super.

    This is the worst beer bar I have ever been to. Uneducated staff, except for a few bartenders(Dave). The food always sucks. Why do I keep coming here?

    Let's see ...plates for appetizers were dirty. This is the second time where the "beer menu " was worthless because kegs ran out. Not sure I'm coming back here, unless they get their shit together.

    If you're into beer glasses, just ask the waiter for the selection. They have a bunch from local microbreweries and they'll sell them for around $3 each. On Tuesdays ("Steal the Glass" night), you can

    The beer menu is huge and awesome. It includes over 300 beers, a lot of them from local breweries. Stick with the small glasses, try a bunch of them and don't forget an appetizer (or share an entree).

    You have to try the sausage and cheese plate. It comes with a giant pretzel and the best Bavarian mustard ever. Pair with a smokey rauchbier and its heaven, but goes well with any of their many select

    Go to Cap Ale and get the stuffed pretzel, but ask for garlic mayo instead of dill mayo. Dip your fries in the garlic mayo and experience love. Pair with a dogfish head 60 minute IPA.
