    Their food is pretty good, my fav is the falafel tabouli plate. But above food, they have great beer and amazing bartenders that make really good cocktails even though it's a brewery :)

    Now owned by Anheuser Busch. Go somewhere independently owned. Not some sell out owned by a conglomerate bent on owning every craft brewer to dumb down craft beer.

    So...it used to be a reasonable place to visit and expect great service/a great atmosphere. As of late, it sucks. If you want a corner bar with shit ass attitude and lame ass service, come here.

    The Great Pumpkin Ale is good but Mortis Sour Persimmon Ale is probably the best beer I've had in my life. So, get that.

    Beer is good, food not so much. The 'Steak Frites' costs $15 and is mostly fat and is not a decent cut of meat
