This place COULD be so cool. Exposed bricks and lotsa beer cans for decor. Ten missionary position taps and several cans--all macro light. And nine bottles of decent beer.

"Only the dark right now," was the bartenders response to what Cans beers do you have on (didn't see a Cans tap handle). So I had that. She handed me a can. I stole a glass from the bar and poured it, the only beer nerd in the place. Light brown. A faint hint of sweet malt aroma and flavor. Very thin. Like watered down Dr. Pepper.

My analysis complete, I drank out of the can, like everyone else in this biker-cum-hipster young crowd place with a fun mix of music. Actually, I don't think I finished it.

I later learned from what I consider to be a reliable source that they just do extract, don't boil, all quite pretend and maybe not even bothering to sanitize stuff. Like I said, this place could be cool, if they cared about beer. However, if you're with non-beer geek friends, go here and order a bottle of somethin', shoot some pool and enjoy the tunes.
