    I'm not one for fruit beers, but I'll sometimes combine a fruit beer and a dark, like a raspberry stout. A raspberry brown is commonly called an "Artie" and can be good when you want bitter & sweet.

    I've had better on the Gulf Coast, but the beer boiled peel and eat shrimp is among the best I've had in the Midwest!

    More of a restaurant than a brewery. Beers are solid and food is good and reasonably priced.

    Whenever I see a wheat beer on tap I usually grab one. I got this honey wheat. I must say it's pretty freaking tasty!

    If they have either on tap, try the India Black Ale or the (Life Without) Parole Porter. Two of my favorites!

    The sweet potato fries are really good! Ask for them dry (without brown sugar).

    Don't order pretzels. You can them at SAMs club cheaper. Beer is good and so is the pizza.

    Okay, appetizer was great, but ribs were tough and not very good. Reuben sandwich was good, but not great. Meal to cost value was not great. Service gets a B-, she did the minimum expected.

    Don't order Bud Light when you come here. At least sample the house brews. Going to a brewpub for Bud Light is like going to a whorehouse to hear the piano player!
