Small (former church) bar/restaurant (does have an outside patio) with a large, very good selection of craft beers, and a small but really excellent food selection. Service is very good, although lines can be a bit slow. Overall, a great place to go.

First time visiting after being told several times I would love the place. We went for the Kolsch night but the rain caused that to be canceled. We did thoroughly enjoy sitting at the bar and experiencing the different brews offered. We also enjoyed a...More

A group of four of us came here during the Kentucky Derby. It was completely packed, but we managed to get a section of the 12-seater picnic-style table in the loft. The beer selection is incredible, atmosphere is fun and the food is delicious. Staff...More

Beer list so long anyone will find something that fits their liking, food menu very limited unless there was a separate menu. We tried the $14 chicken thigh and pork belly sliders-they were good! Two sliders for $14 is a little pricey but they were...More

Amazing burger and fries and I am pretty critical of the french fries I eat. Assortment of dipping sauces that you can choose from for your fries. One dipping sauce is included with your order but you have to spend the $.50 extra per sauce...More

Very nice beer menu and service. The place seems to cater to more of a hipster crowd. It's a converted church that felt compartmentalized and crowded. Might have missed a piece of it because we only stayed for one. Worth a try.

It is mainly pub fare. I think the menu rotates, but when I went they had fantastic mussels, some burgers, quail, charcuterie etc. Not a traditional dinner menu, but definitely some tasty options to go with the crazy good... More
