    Ask for draft combos not on the list... i.e. A mix of a seasonal like DFH Aprihop and 90 minute or the Chicory Stout and 60 minute. DFH Bliss!

    Sat at the bar for happy hour. Had great service from Joshua, but watched the female bartender drink from 2 beers before sending them with the server. Neither she or the server seemed to care at all..

    It's an Ale House! Drink! Don't occupy that bar stool drinking non-alcoholic drink -- like what I just heard: "Can I get a mojito without the alcohol, please?"

    If you like hoppy beers, this is the place for you. If you don't, there's not much to choose from. Food is great! Alehouse mac and cheese with blackened cajun chicken. Order it! You won't be sorry.
