Anyone been yet? This seems like Chowhound stomping grounds.
It is in the location of the former Rasha's which moved in after Kelly's Burgers closed.
Also open late-night. Food is served till 1am and bar closes at 2am.
They probably store the bottled beer correctly and not on the wall, but they do have 100 different bottles.
The website which says one goal is beer education mentions the newsletter "will highlight a certain style of beer or a certain brewery. We will also announce any upcoming events, like our monthly Meet the Brewer Night"
The menu includes a giant pretzel with stone-ground mustard and cheddar ale sauce. There seem to be a nice selection of dishes that would make vegetarians happy.
There's a pot pie of the day and someone on Yelp mentioned that one day it was a lobster pot pie.
Seems like from Yelp they are still working on some service, a few menu and environmental issues. I guess it was cold in there one night ... someone said they could see their dining companions breath.
Popular items seem to be, for the most part, the fries, burgers (beef or veggie) and chocolate cake. Not so much, the fruit cobbler. However, someone liked the cobbler a lot the night the fruit was persimmon.
A number of people seemed impressed that they carried St. Bernardus Abt 12. They allow tastes of the draft beers before buying.
There are suggested beer pairings with all the menu items. For example ...
Molten Chocolate Lava Cake with raspberry puree
Beer Pairing: St. Louis Framboise is the only choice
The Monk's Kettle
