This is a great place for top notch local beers, with a friendly knowledgeable staff and laid back atmosphere. We went in the winter and it was clear that the place is probably even better in the... more »
Organized a casual birthday party here on a Saturday in June for two adults. Lots of space and large beer selection. But the staff was rude and getting a beer was slow and unorganized at the bar. Their beer garden only has a couple of tables with umbrellas. At one point I sat a third full glass of beer down and a minute later it was gone. I flagged down the staff member who had taken it and grabbed it out of their collection tray. I understand the need to pick up empty glasses so they can be cleaned and turned over but taking a non-empty glass from a table clearly having a party without saying a word is a bit ridiculous. At one point we started sitting at two picnic tables in the shade, which had been moved there by a previous party that had since left. When the band came at 4:30 to set up for a start time at 7PM they rudely told us to move (guests, paying customers) because they needed the space for running cables. When we asked if we would move in a while (we were well aware they did not start for 2 AND A HALF HOURS!) they made a comment to my wife that they would tell the manager we were the reason the band couldn't start on time. Who threatens something like that? Not wanting to cause a scene, a few of us decided to lift and move the two tables (which, again, we did not put there) to the other side of the stage. Later a staff member came out to collect empty classes (the only time they bothered to come out side) and very rudely accused us of moving the tables and said we should have asked before doing so. Who would we have asked? NO staff ever came outside and the attitude at the bar was they could barely be bothered to pour a drink. He also said the tables were in the way of the outside bar and they "may need to open it". I went inside a few minutes later to get another drink and the bar was slammed twenty deep. If you can't handle the bar inside, why would you open a second bar?
Nice local place downtown. Good amount of seating and a huge selection of beers to choose from. Service was fast and friendly. Would definitely come back and see what a weekend is like.
