Stopped in over the past weekend while out for The Big Chill. Place was pretty busy but we were able to get seats at the bar on the second floor. Bar is located in the Ann Arbor with is pretty much crime free and has plenty of parking on streets or nearby garages. They have tables out front or on the patio in the roof. I didnt have any food but it looked great. I had the diabolical IPA. As all bars in town there is no smoking allowed so that was a plus.

Stopped in here twice over the weekend. Saturday night was packed as you might expect, so we spent our time upstairs where the second bar wasn't as crowded.

On the swanky Main St. strip, the JP café fits right in without being too pretentious. The decor was classic with dark wood paneling on the lower part of the walls, wood floors, tin ceilings. Lots of framed photos, also assorted larger artworks from the JP labels. Some brewing equipment was on display, but it looked more vintage than in use. On the flight of stairs to the 2nd level, there was a super tall wooden light fixture that looked almost like a barrel that had been stretched vertically from either end. Framed on the opposite wall was a classic "Pabst lady" ad that had to be over a century old.

Beers were good, though seemed "lighter" on draft than their bottled counterparts. For example, Maracaibo was more like a Belgian Dark with only a hint of tartness, not the spicy, sour brown I remember the last time I had a bottle. There was a blended porter on cask (downstairs), "Bog Monster" I think, that had cranberries added. Bam seemed lighter and less funky than I remember also. There were 2 Baudelaire series bottles available in addition to the regular lineup. The Eyo/iO red Saison was really nice, didn't try the tripel. There seemed to be less JP available on draft than I would have liked, only 3-4 options, and a few North Peak beers.

The food really looked great, slightly upscale but still affordable. This was a comfortable place that i'd return to in the future. Not sure if it was smoke-free, but it seemed like it.
