Stopped by for a lunch of bacon mac and cheese to go with a fine pale ale. The menu had a lot of pastrami, so if that's your thing, you'll like the food. Beers on tap follow the standard numbering system, and most are Northwest-based....More

Perfect place for couples or friends hanging out great selection in beer. My only complaint is don’t go Sunday If you want a meal they take most options off the menu. But durning the week the food is good!

Awesome beer selection; good sandwiches. There could be some improvements in service and flow. There is no table service so beer, food, growlers are all ordered at the counter; plus there is seating at the counter. When we were there, there was one man at...More

Great location and atmosphere and a lot of beers to choose from. The only downfall is the price of beer. I believe the price is too high overall. A pint of beer should be 4 or 5 dollars not 6 as in a number of...More

Tonight we visited because the Deschutes The Abyss 2016 reserve went on tap, stayed for dinner and a Boneyard Notorious triple IPA. Both beers were beyond excellent, top of the MARK. They only serve them both in a 10oz tulip because of the high ABV....More
