Diner Reviews
  • "My fiance and I went to this bar specifically because he is a beer aficionado. Beer Authority has such an impressive beer menu that we ended up dining here twice :)"

  • "My husband is a beer aficionado, so we decided to give this a try for a before show supper. Location is great. Do NOT be put off by the somewhat dingy bar when you walk in. You dine upstairs which is bright and fun & has large windows overlooking 8th and 40th. We had the Deviled Eggs appetizer and they're just like grandma used to make. We also had the Mac & Cheese and the Wild Boar Sausages, both were excellent. Of course the real draw is the beer selection. There is literally something for everyone and my husband thoroughly enjoyed tasting some beers he had never had. I would definitely recommend this and we will be back."

  • "Since we were going to be 16 people and I knew they had room but what I didn't know is that when we got there the table was set up for only 10-11 people when I asked where are the chairs for the rest of the party they replied: Well they can stand - we don't seat that many people..my mouth opened?? I said that is unacceptable - I made a reservation for 16 for dinner - I am not going to have people stand and eat. They said that was the policy.. they do not expect people to eat but to drink and pick around they table. So don't go here if you want to actually sit for dinner - we did eventually get the additional chairs and a table added but to have to request this is not right. When you book a reservation on Open Table it is to sit and eat -"

  • "Met up with some friends that we see only annually and chose this because we are beer geeks. We had a 7:30 reservation but actually arrived an hour early. They were able to seat us, which was nice of them. Great beer selection (something like 70 taps) but sooo noisy it was hard to hear and catch up on the events of the past year. The nachos were only average and my mushroom mac and cheese was not memorable. I would not go out of my way to visit here again, but would stop by for drinks only if in the neighborhood."

  • "We were looking for a place to meet friends in a very specific location, and we found this one. On Sunday noontime, it was not very bsuy, but the surroundings were pleasant, and the food was good."
