The Award-Winning Original

Opened in 2008 as a place where our founder, Mark Sellers, could enjoy a wide selection of craft beers from around the world (and some great seasonals brewed in our in-house small-batch brewery). Since then it has been named No. 3 Beer Bar on Planet Earth by Beer Advocate magazine, No. 2 beer bar in the United States  by CraftBeer.com and No. 1 brewpub in the country by RateBeer.com.

Sustainability:

It isn't just a 14-letter word

We're serious about our role as conscientious business owners, constantly looking for ways we can be better stewards of our environment. We recycle or compost most of our waste, reducing the amount of trash going to landfills and incinerators by 90 percent. We also strive to source food and products from companies with similar commitments.
