    Yay beer samples! Enjoyed the BBQ Chicken Salad, Korean BBQ Pupusa and a Windansea Wheat Hefeweizen. They proactively comped one of our plates that was delayed coming out of the kitchen.

    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
