Award: Redemption (my ranking: #8)
Atmosphere: 2 – solid atmosphere, definitely feels like a brewpub. The façade on the long “front” of the building looks quite nice and contemporary, but the entrance on the side feels a tad dated. Once inside, however, all of this fades away, and it feels comfortable.
Beer: 3 – Smokehouse absolutely redeemed themselves for me from last year. I enjoyed a really nice flight that I let the bartender pick. Two of the beers were their “Common House” beers (their B Corps label that donates some proceeds to charity), and the other two were Smokehouse. All four were good and quite enjoyable. We also had some great food (loaded “Totchos” – tater tots – delicious).
Service: 3 – Service was good, and seemed even better having just left Knotty Pine.
Would I go back? +1 – I’ll be back to this place for sure.
