    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.

    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!

    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
