Man. What a cool place. Great atmosphere. Plenty of beer choices. Bacon wrapped pretzel bites,in maple syrup, are an absolute must have. Bourbon room is cool also.

Only complaint is that the service at the bar was a little slow at noon on a Tuesday. The food was delicious, prices were fair, and then we went and threw axes in the same building upstairs. Very friendly and great service.
