The really important element to have at a place like this is a super knowledgeable staff and they certainly have that. You are going to want to have a very long conversation with your server so that you are sure to find something to please your palate. And yes, they specialize in some out of this world craft beers, but they also have not neglected other wonderful drinks like wine and spirits.
