This place is a bit unusual. It's more of a dining club than a brewpub.

The outside of the building is rather unassuming, but the interior is nice & clean. The food is excellent, and compares with Chicago in prices (read: a little pricey).

The beers were very well executed, and where in-style.

I would say that the brewery portion is second to the restaurant, but they are still doing a great job at brewing.

The majority of the people in the place are locals, which is OK as they are very friendly in that neck of the woods.

Definitely recommended if you are driving by.
