Notes

Visited: February 11, 1996

Opened: 1995

Closed: 1997

Uncomfortable bar with no rail. Electric darts. Full bar, with green neon lighting. Nice building, but lousy atmosphere. Victorian interior just doesn't work with LOUD "house" music. At least there's hockey on ESPN. Couldn't find the brewhouse during my visit, and the bartender was no help...turns out their beer is actually brewed under contract by an unknown brewery.

Directions: Right around the corner from Westwood Brewing.

      Red? Green? Hard to tell. Good head. Faintly spicy aroma, some crystal. Least offensive of the lot so far. Almost has some crystal character and body.
