We we're so happy to find this brew pub.. and our waitress was a genius when it came to chosing brews... there were dozens on tap (and more in bottles and cans...) yummmmm. The food was good too!

We had the stuffed strawberry French toast, apple walnut waffle with caramel and the hash browns. All were exceptional. Service was good. Pub type atmosphere. Near the Richmond Ballet which was within walking distance for our matinee performance.
