Check it out! He came on our anniversary and talked to Curt Dawsey!
We got Reader’s Pick for Best Bar Food and Editor’s Pick of Best Beer Bar!
Can you believe it? 5 years!! It’s gone so fast and yet I feel like we’ve been here forever. I am proud to say we still have 6 original employees, who have been with us for 5 years! That’s 17% of 35 total employees! not bad for a beer bar!
So what has changed in 5 years?
We went from 19 drafts to 44!
We’ve gone from 100 bottles to over 800!
We added the vintage list and our fabulous private beer cellar!
We’ve been the best beer bar in the country in 2012 & 2011 according to ratebeer.com!
We’ve been a semi-finalist for Best Bar Program by James Beard foundation in 2012 & 2013!
And in 2013 we were featured on The Layover w/ Anthony Bourdain!
It’s been a good five years and with luck we will be looking at another good give years ahead!
