    While there is a great selection of beer - please don't expect decent service. The bar staff is SLOW and not exactly friendly, although they are knowledgeable about their products.

    Don't overlook the beer fridge it's crazy good. Be sure to taste a beer before buying a glass, they won't let you change a beer if you don't like it.
