This is a nice addition to Decatur’s beer scene. Ambiance is big, open, and sort of loud. Pool tables are very plentiful. There were 8 house beers on (I believe) and Terrapin Wake n Bake and some cider. There’s also a good selection of bottled beers, if you don’t like the brewpub’s beers (but I don’t see how that could be).

All of the house beers I had were very good. There's a nice variety of beers ranging from a big, roasty stout, American IPA, Belgian Brown, and even a slightly odd (but mostly good) Gingerbread Pale Ale. All of their beers are served in 12oz, 20oz, or pitcher.

The first time I went, the place was insanely busy and I sat at the bar and watched the bartender work her butt off and keep things flowing pretty well. The second time, the place was not very busy, I sat outside, and received some pretty slow service.

The food we had was ok, but nothing to get excited about.

There's a good sized parking lot that's available for nights and weekends. It's also within very easy walking distance of a MARTA station.

The main thing I missed was the ability to order a flight of smaller servings of their beers - they promised me that would be coming soon though. Let’s hope! Overall, this is a really great brewpub.

Nice pool hall that also brews beer. There is a good size bar area with additional seating near the front windows and on a covered patio on the side. There is a separate pool room as well as additional pool, shuffle board and darts in the main restaurant. When I visited, there were six house brews on tap plus several guest brews and a cask ale. I enjoyed both the Stubborn River Bitter and the 3 Lies Cocoa Imperial Stout. A sampler is now available and they were quick to provide a taste of the cask selection (a hot chili brew was more than I could handle). I didn’t get a chance to sample the food but the menu included several interesting entrees in addition to typical pub fare. There are several parking lots nearby but they were all very full on a Wednesday (cask) night.
