We picked this brewpub because it was a few blocks away from Janell's brother's house.  It is actually a somewhat upscale restaurant in addition to being a brewery.  It was very full on a Thursday night, which is a testament to its popularity.  Jason ordered the sample platter, and Janell picked the Oktoberfest.  The beers themselves were quite average with nothing really standing out.  Nothing was bad, either.  The food, however, was very good (and the prices reflected that). 

The one thing that this brewery had that we haven't seen before is the serving vessels.  At least we didn't know what we were looking at if other places had these.  Rather than putting the beer in kegs and serving it that way, the large serving vessel tanks were plumbed directly to the bar.  This is a very cool feature!  I'm surprised more place don't do this, and if they do, why i hadn't noticed before!

Overall, this is a very nice place with very average beer.
