“Came for the beer, stayed for the beer”
Reviewed 14 March 2013

We like beer, a lot. We try to sample as many different kinds of local beer as we can when we travel. We even track it on an app. Anyway, Google told us about the good ratings at this place so we had to try it. It was a Friday night and it wasn't too busy yet so we grabbed a booth near the bar and ordered a flight.

Top to bottom, they have some of the best beer we've had. Sure, there were one or two that were "just okay" but there were a few that really knocked our socks off. I'm a little sad that we don't live in the area and that we really don't make it back to ATL more often.

If you like well done microbrew, this is a must stop.

“Great Jazz Jam Session, but hard to see the band”
Reviewed 26 February 2013 via mobile

I attended on a Tuesday evening for their Jazz Jam Session from 9 pm - 12:30am. The various artists were great with wonderful jazz and singing. However, it was hard to see the band. they had tall and short tables, so it blocked your view along with people standing and we supposeably had good seats. Food and drinks were reasonably priced although I didn't eat, I did have a beer for $3.75. The location and atmosphere was great. It is large with several pool tables and seating areas. I would return and I recommend you check out this spot.

“fun place, good beer, mediocre food”
Reviewed 19 February 2013

It's a great place to meet friends, play darts, shoot pool, drink their locally made beer but let's be honnest here, the food is horrible. I really fon't go there for the food and i don't care how bad it is, as long as i am having fun. the staff is very friendly, especially the girl with pink hair and a small dead animal on her shoulder :) she is very cool and friendly and gets our drinks right away.

“Great burger!”
Reviewed 31 January 2013

Had a really good "hot" burger with onion rings. We also had the fried green beans with sauce (out of this world!!) All of it was very, very good. Enjoyed my visit.
