Friendly prompt service at the bar, cold beer, fair price. Nice to have a option to sit outside. Would try it again.

The beers were all very well made, and spanned the spectrum of styles. The ghettoblaster 15pack is a screaming deal for $15 (especially if you enjoy lower gravity flavourful English style ales).

I love this place! It is small and cramped at times, but comfortable. They have a good selection of beer and their food is amazing! They have a small upper deck that is nice to sit on when nice outside!

I don't know how they operate with such a small kitchen but the food is awesome. The beers are always plentiful and reasonably priced. Great spot to stop in at in the Midtown area just across from Shinola.

While shopping in the area, decided to stop in for the first time to get a pizza and try the beer. I ended up trying the Elixer-think fruity adult punch drink in a bottle. Also tried a couple flavors of the sodas between the three...More
