Started with Root Beer. I found it too sweet . Then switched to Leffe Brun a better choice. Mussels next very good. Then a half rack of ribs which were very lean and done well. Will definitely return.

ETtravelerdrh The Not your fathers alcoholic Rootbeer is very sweet but If you let it sit on ice for a bit it really is delicious. The Guinness and Dr Pepper rack of ribs are excellent. Glad you enjoyed your experience.
