The taproom for the nanobrewery has a cool, semi-finished-basement vibe, with golden wood, painted cinderblocks and wall-mounted TV cabinets. And there's a real live menu, serving plates large and small, with nightly flourishes that may be gone the next. If they're on the menu, the Atwood burger, the poutine, the mix-n-match skewers, and the ssam pork sandwich are apt to please.
