Some Important Information
With over 150 domestic, imported, and microbrewed beers, there is certainly no shortage to choose from. The menu includes brewed ciders and flavoured brews, among others.
Cigars are available. There's even a menu for them.
There are blues bands playing most weekends.
Wonderful service. So wonderful that if you don't argue, you can occasionally get free beer.
Tile walls with the names of certain club members. Interesting to read, at least. If you try hard enough, you can get your name on a tile. The various clubs include 'The Brewmaster's Club' and 'The Deck Club'.
The entire common room is ringed with empty bottles and cans of different types of beer. They are located on shelves above the head and are fun to look at.
Lots of people on weekends and a deck for use in the summer.

At the time of writing, prices range from $3.00 for most beers, up to as high as $12.00 for 25 oz. bottle of La Chouffe. Most beers are under $6.00, even the rare and special beers. It is not the cheapest place to go and drink, but likely one of the more enjoyable.
