Mid evening visit, I remain always impressed by the beer care here. The live rock gig was improved by my left ear being muted with a finger (mine).

Mid evening visit during a music gig break. I have found this place famed for consistently excellent beer and worthy of a Good Beer Guide entry anytime.
