Separated into multiple rooms including a DJ booth, the main bar space features an inlaid stones mosaic painted black (ah, those were once gold, yikes) over the bar. Adjacent, a walk-in cooler with a windowed door will showcase Sweeney's favorite beers plus any special beers available on the given day. Patios in front and on the east side offer a few tables and standing room for smokers. While The Surly Goat comes with a full liquor license and kitchen, don't expect to come for dinner. Sweeney is thinking about pairing up with the Hot Knives guys for some light bites but nothing is set in stone. Back on the beer front, expect about thirty beers on tap like RRBC Piny The Elder, Stone Vertical Epic, RRBC Blind Pig IPA, Nectar Ales Black Xantus, and Speakeasy Apple Jack Oaked Old Godfather.
As far as the names goes, "bock" is the German word for a strong dark beer, but also means "goat." So another name of this place could be The Ill-Tempered Dark Beer, not too far off from what Ryan likes to drink and serve.
