We here at Craftsmen appreciate all reviews and comments, both positive and negative. We are brand new and know that we have plenty of room to grow into our identity. I do feel that we are offering a very good product that is unique to our dining community by focusing on offering a good selection of beers and casual, well executed food that is intended to elevate the drinking experience. As far as pricing is concerned, we feel that we have placed ourselves on the moderate end of the spectrum, but rare beers and specialty beers are always going to cost more. The beer community is a friendly one, full of camaraderie and a desire for everyone to succeed in the quest to make people happy. That is something we believe in at Craftsmen, too. So thanks to everyone who has been in or will come in the future, and know that we are listening and working hard to become a great addition to an already fabulous dining scene.
"Basically, your negativity in the review stems from your own misunderstandings and lack of knowledge"
Really? I don't believe I "bashed" them at all. I apologize for not remembering the menu to the exact wording. So I didn't correctly state the sections properly. That doesn't change the fact that they separate hoppy beers, then mix in other categories. What is "mash" anyways? There weren't many specialties on there. Just some random normal brews. Honestly, it wasn't negative criticism, just a bit of confusion I thought could be corrected to help people find a certain beer. I never stated there were 5 sections, BTW.
Also, I am not exactly well versed in french cuisine, nor were the other people eating with us. No one was really upset about the egg on top, and it is not really a negative comment. The overcooked pork belly was a bit disappointing, but didn't hurt the sandwich too much.
From your knowledge of everything on the menu, and your joining this site just to attack my review, I can guess that you either work there or have a connection to this place. Why do people feel that they need to attack honest reviews on CCP? I didn't dislike this place, but felt the beer selection could use some work. I also was kind about the food, as it is a new place. I didn't give this place 3 stars because of the menu or an egg on top of the sandwich. It got 3 stars because it is a beer bar that has mostly basic beers from different breweries (a complaint I have heard from many people who have visited), and the food wasn't amazing (flavor wise, nothing to do with layout). It also got 3 stars because of pricing being a touch high. I had every intention to return after it has been open for a couple months and seeing if things were really falling into place. At that time, I would add a new review.
