    Fair share of craft brews as well as some of their own. Their summer beer - Lime Cucumber Ale was incredibly refreshing.

    It's rated well and the crowds are testimony. Get there early, but sit at communal tables for best experience.

    This place can really get packed! But if you can find a seat, please order the crack fries. Yes, they're overly-hyped, however, they are very good.

    Amazing beer selection. Bummed the Crack fries were so salty they burned my mouth since they are so highly rated - but the pretzel nuggets were great and the house beer cheese sauce was really good.
