I used to like this place, until the other day when the owner was bartending. Walked in and ordered a cask Cane & Ebel. Hand him a 20, change left on the bar. The pint was served with over 1" head of foam. Next I had a Hopsoulution for $7...after a $2 tip, all I had left was $4...so that first pint was $7 too...waay too pricey, especially since it wasn't a full pint to begin with. Not planning to return with this sort of pricing structure...

In the past i've enjoyed my time here, they make good burgers and sandwiches. There's usually colorful characters at the bar. It's dingy and dark, but homey. A bluegrass band plays on a given night, and the music is usually good. They have the exclusive Rogue tap, but the rest of the selection is just ok in my opinion. If the cask costs $2 more than other places, i'll be more inclined to patronize other places that don't gouge, and actually serve a full pint.
