Beer: Savor 2011 Brickskeller
No SAVOR report as I didnt attend this year but you may see follow ups posted here: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/769224.
And by reopening of the Brickskeller Im assuming you mean The Bier Baron? Ive been there a few times since the change over and Im happily pleased with it so far. They now have taps upstairs AND downstairs which is key because up till now downstairs was bottle only. And they are doing their best to list what they have in stock rather than print out a massive menu which becomes obsolete in a few days and that was probably the number one complaint about The Brick. Still wouldnt go there to eat dinner specifically but the food is fine if you want to go out to a place for its beer primarily. Will never understand people who rip the place because the food isnt gourmet... Thats just not the point of this place.
