If you like craft beer, awesome variety. Suggest the Uncommon Stout as the best (caffeine) and Undercurrent IPA. Great staff but note that service outdoors can be a bit slow. We like it slow outdoors though.

Our server was very polite and helpful, even though he had his hands full waiting on several customers. Also, the beer is outstanding and the appetizer we had was awesome!

Several different types of beers. All I tried were very good. The meat loaf sandwich was excellent as were the garlic mashed potatoes. Management works hard to maintain a convivial atmosphere. I will go back.

We only came for drinks and we loved it. The Sweet Potato Ale was a perfect spiced beer for the fall season. Our server was fantastic, friendly with great timing. If I lived in the area I suspect this would become my go-to place for going out.

My wife and I visited here on Friday night of Labor Day weekend. I loved the beers and the food was quite tasty. It is in a very cool area with plenty of parking. Staff was experienced and knew their beers. The building is older and they have kept that look. A younger crowd, especially after 9 PM which was... More

With seasonal, locally sourced beer this is a great stop on your way through town. The food is what you would expect from a brewery but the service is always friendly. There is outdoor seating. The jalapeño beer is a favorite with a burger.

Stopped here on a weeknight while visiting the Quad city area. They offer a great selection of hand crafted beer and a creative menu. My spouse had the Uncommon Stout and I had the Blonde - both very good as well as our food. The wait staff was friendly and attentive - we would highly recommend.

Thank CatzandMike
