My wife and I stopped into the downstairs Belgian Bar one afternoon for a quick snack and to taste some local beer. it was a Friday afternoon about 2 and the bar was empty except for us and the bartender. The Thirsty Monk local beer was excellent; every bit as good as monastery beers I've had in Europe. The barkeep... More

Had a good sit down at the (ground) floor of the pub. We had nachos with pulled pork and pretzels with beer cheese. The bartender was great and knowledgeable on the beers! A must on the stop list.

Went here on a Wednesday night, the place was dead, BUT, I'm not sure that it's ever busy during the middle of the week. This was no reflection of what I thought of the bar, I thought it was great, tons of craft beer, local craft beer, and just about any kind of beer you can think of. There is... More

I sat at the bar and had a flight of beers. Some amazing beers - had a terrific time. Staff were helpful. There is also a downstairs, which I didn't visit, that I believe has more Belgian-style beers. Their own craft ales were excellent. Good prices too!

Fantastic selection of beers, and taster racks for the indecisive! We didn't eat but really enjoyed the beers, and atmosphere.

There didn't seem to be many people there and very few locals. Upstairs, they had the Americans style beers at the bar (with poor service) but they had the Belgian style beers downstairs (with even worse service). We opted to try the Belgian style beers downstairs and they would only sell us one sampler, instead of two, because they were... More

We were downtown and found this place. Cool dive bar with a friendly staff. We would return the next time were here in town.

They have their own craft beer as well as a huge selection of other craft beers on tap. Two levels give you access to over 50 beers on tap. I tried one of their house beers but was lacking flavor. If you want variety, this is one place to go however.

My husband loves Belgium beer, so this was a must go. We went to the downstairs part. I am not a beer drinker, but the bartender kept giving me beer to try until he found one I loved. He was great! My husband ordered the Buffalo chicken tacos and thoroughly enjoyed them. We had a good experience.
