    Red Trolley is my favorite. Goes really well with the BBQ Chicken salad.

    They will let you sample whatever you want and often have special seasonal brews. Get a growler to go home with - fresh from the tap!

    Skip the chicken pinwheel style app (rollo loco?)... It's bland. Pale ale was good, though

    Sit at the bar and taste a lot of beers. Ask about the cask. Food is good, too, if you aren't in the mood for Mexican at puesto next door.

    I think the Fullsuit is a seasonal, however I would drink it all the time if I could. Try it if you like coffee and oaky red wines. All the beer was good
