    We've become semi-regulars because darling husband is a major beer afficianado. Beer selection is outstanding -- 18 taps + bottles from all over the world and some very rare finds. Food isn't bad at all...great homemade chorizo platter is one of the more interesting offerings beyond the to be expected chicken and ribs. Portions are huge & features a kiddie menu. We tend to hang at the bar and have dinner there to avoid the louder crush in the back. Nice outdoor seating in summer, too.

      We've been there a few times. The carolina pulled pork is the best. They each come with two side dishes. And if you can't find a rare beer your looking for there I don't know where you'd find it. The beer list is bigger than the menu.
      And the owner is a nice guy too. You order an odd beer and he'll come over and tell you a whole story about it. Pretty interesting!

        Once about two years ago. It was pretty good. Not the best barbecue but definitely slow smoked and very decent. It's been too long for me to remember the specifics of the meal but we always have ribs so we must have found them to be tasty. Only reason we haven't been back is the distance from where we live.

          The BBQ is good. They have tons of beer. The side dishes and the service are poor at best.
