Tried a flight of both the flagship beers and the seasonal beers. They do the aged/high alcohol beers very well. It was a nice place to stop for live music and dinner on a Friday evening.

We enjoyed our lunch here today. We enjoyed a Club sandwich that was piled with meat. The potato salad was also a great alternative to fries. Also enjoyed a BBQ chicken flatbread. The Nitro Dark ESB was nice and smooth.

The Imperial Stout was interesting, but in general, their beers are not that impressive. i have the beet salad (good, but would have benefits from a roll or something to go along with it). The club sandwich was filling.
