Foursquare Tips

  • Beers, burger and schnitzel were all delicious. Get them with root chips and grab a beer flight.
  • Cherry Amaro Ale clocks in at 8.2% abv & tastes like a good Manhattan!
  • I hear that future beer is delicious!
  • Happy hour for little beer. All fine
  • Great beer!
  • awesome beers that they brew
  • Cool music and great beers. Burger was good but the salmon portion was tiny!
  • Great rotating selection of locally brewed beer using botanicals. And the food is really great also. Get the spicy popcorn and sweet potato bar snacks, and dark hot chocolate with salted mallow-yum!
  • Beware: burgers come with lots of Pickles. Pickles are cucumbers soaked in evil juice. Feel free to get them out of there or tell them to hold them to truly enjoy an amazing burger.
  • This place has killer food and cocktails.
  • Favorite beer is the Snoochie Booches. A solid New England style IPA which means the clarity is unfiltered so it looks more like OJ and taste more citrusy than your standard bitter IPA's.
  • Great place for a beer and savory snacks/meals. Get the Ritz crackers and cheese
  • i like the light inside, and how it's not a cave
  • Wifi password: rootroot
  • a really cool space to hang out, great beers!
  • Pork schnitzel
  • We got a few small plates and everything was delicious. Beers were all solid and even my non-beer drinking friend had 2 flights. We also tried a cocktail which was amazing as well.
  • Craft beer, Burgers, Brunch!
  • The beer is unique, but still so good. Chili popcorn is small portion but great for snacking. The "Lonely Wolf" is one of the best cocktails I've ever had.
  • A quality brew pub in East/Ukranian Village. Beers range from light/refreshing to to dark/complex. Ask for tasters to find the right beer to whet your palette. And deep fried gardeneria!
