Rather big bar divided into two. American and Belgian bars. For me the Belgian one wasn’t that interesting so I hit the American one. Nice selection of not-so-common brews, friendly service and rather cozy atmosphere. Not a bad combination.

Stopped in on a Saturday evening before walking around to more of the local breweries. Great selection of beer and best part is they were playing the Backspin channel on XM Radio in the bar.
