    The sampler is so cheap that they're basically paying you to taste 18 beers. After the sampler, get seconds of the sweet Belgians, and Pliny. The sours of the sampler will accentuate their sweetness.

    This brewpub is definitely worth a little detour. Take a sampler and find out which of 18 beers you like best. Then have your growler filled with your favorite. Great bites too.

    Consecration (dark sour) is so good. Line to get inside, along with a wait for a table, can be very long. But so worth it...

    "Pliny Bites" is on the menu but somehow isn't a breakfast cereal for the kids of beer-loving parents. (It's a cheese pizza sliced into tiny slices.)

    The best thing about This place is obviously the world-class beer but their prices are a close second. Very reasonably-priced pints and pours. Oh, and eat some Pliny Bites. Yesss.

    I love/hate this place. Beers are fantastic. Staff is arrogant and indifferent. Why not make it easier to order food outside? Well, because they're usually packed, anyway, so who gives a shit?...
