    The Amber Waves Ale and Prohibition Porter were pretty good for their Signature Brews but the Seasonal Brews have all of their Strongest Beers including the Triple-Double, Fuel Stout and RyePA!!

    If you're in the bar area, place all orders for food/drink at the bar . Staff was super nice! Got tasters of reg beers and their seasonals!

    Please don't come here and bitch about the food. It's solid bar food, get a little drunk before you have it. Pumpkinator is a good seasonal. Pretty good beers all around with a cool atmosphere.

    Seasonals are always awesome, crisp, and cheap at happy hour. If you sit at the bar ask for the free pretzels with special sauuuuus they won't just give them willingly if the place is packed.

    You'll have a slightly better chance at getting more attentive service at the bar than sitting at a table, but not exponentially. Overall, food and beer gets a B- but service gets a D.

    One of the best places to meet someone after work and if you want pretzel and beer you can ask for it!

    Sitting outside has its disadvantages I guess. Our waiter took extremely long with everything. The kolsch beer is good. Nice and crisp.

    Thursdays the 4 main beers are only $2 until 9pm. Worth it for the Porter. Bartenders are usually pretty bad, though. Lots of turnover.

    They don't let you get a sampler with more than one seasonal beer. I've already tried the core beers; let me try all the seasonals!

    $2 Drafts every Thursday. I recommend the kölsch. And the free pretzels with dip.

    Thursday is free pretzel night with an awesome horseradish dip. Four beers are $2 each-great deal!

    Be adventurous! Open your mind and try a beer you wouldn't usually have. You might find a new favorite!

    After waiting at the bar for 5 minutes unacknowledged during a slow brunch and the bartender walking past me twice I hoofed it across the street to Carlyle where the service is exemplary. No one cared

    They fill growlers here! $12 for one of the standard brews, a bit more for the seasonals/specials.

    The ahi tuna is not great at all. If you want a good ahi tuna starter, check out a DuClaw's up in MD.

    Pretzels were awesome but the crab cakes were disappointing.

    Mediocre food and beer, but at least the Kolsch is refreshing on a hot day.
