Other than being a bit hard to find (basement about 20 feet east of the 1st Empire brewery outside sign we saw), no parking, this place was amazing. Great beer, great service, great gumbalaya, hamburger, chicken wrap, great atmosphere and decoration. Would def. Go back next time in Syracuse.

Great beer, food & music!
Blues Brunch on Sundays (dtown) NEVER disappoints!
Been there too much to mention & will be back, always try to bring someone that hasn't been before.

Lovely atmosphere. Great repurpose of building. Very good food and lots of choices for beer on tap. Neat artwork in a variety of spaces. Negative- crowded and noisy. Hard to carry on a conversation and tables are very close together.

We were really excited to come he having heard so much about the ambience and setting.
We were not disappointed but not enthralled with the Brew selection
3/6 if the brews were fine, our company was great, Meeting some wonderful and interesting folks Kathy & Tim. Too far to travel, despite a lovely sunset! Middle Ages rules

We went to the brewery for a beer and stayed for dinner on a busy Friday night. The beer selection was great, but it was a long wait to get a bartender’s attention. The ambiance was fun, festive, and high energy.

We were waiting for a table and another couple came in and were given a table before us even though we told the hostess we decided to stay, so we had a bit of a wait. We had the nacho fondue for a shared appetizer, but it was pretty forgettable. The burgers we awesome. The gumbo had a film on it, but the blue cornbread was pretty good.

Bottom line: Go for beer, stay for the burger.
