Foursquare Tips

  • Order a round of balanced Barrier Brewing Company brews if theres one on tap. Theyre one of our #100best dishes and drinks of 2011.
  • The most flattering men's bathroom mirror ever.
  • Dont eat the peanuts if you have a nut allergy.
  • We are no longer cash-only! We are now accepting credit cards!
  • This bar does some great grilled cheese sandwiches on Bien Cuit bread.
  • Soupy deliciousness! Indonesian cauliflower (with vegan faux gras toast on the side).
  • Wow is this baby central. Like a day care with coffee.
  • Northeast Egg Sandwich and Apple Ginger soda: brunch that's well above bar food standards. The sarnie comes with crunchy, spicy green bean pickles that are pretty spectacular.
  • From a Sixpoint Craft Ales alum comes this cool spot with a great selection of local beers in an awesome space with high ceilings, picnic tables, and a biergarten kind of vibe.
  • Wifi password 2015 "drinklocal"
  • Huge space. Good beers on tap. Small menu, but good. Inspired me to start pairing grilled cheese and mushroom barley soup.
  • One of the few cafes that plays consistently good tunes and at a volume where you can still hear yourself think, perfect when it's already a great free Wi-Fi work space!
  • It shouldn't take 10+ minutes to get one beer. The bartenders are slow and yes, I can see all the health code violations right in front of me as you prepare the food. At least they serve Singlecut...
  • Get a Beer Float (Sixpoint Otis stout with Steve's vanilla bean ice cream)
  • This place has a great vibe - beer hall and amazing coversation.
  • If you're in the back bathroom and want to go about your business in peace keep absolutely still, it's vision is based on movement.
  • Chilli pickles. Delicious! Advice (speaking from experience): do not eat at same time as smoked almonds and ginger kombucha. Kinda extreme for a quiet afternoon!
  • I know what beer I like, but here I always ask their advice. Awesome, ever changing selection, with opinionated bartenders that aren't shy about choosing for you.
  • Give Justin Scarborough a kiss
