smells like a brewery; so people with olfactory sensitivities be warned. 7 taps, really? does flights but they are preselected. friendly and knowledgeable staff.

This is large cordoned off space in the middle of the production brewery, bar on one side and scattered standing tables. Can sales as well. Sampler of all six beers on offer was $6.50, in 2-3 ounce plastic cups. 3 core beers, 3 seasonals. Friendly staff. Not crowded when we stopped by on a Friday morning, but I am told it can fill up fast on weekends.

Located in an old warehouse, half the floor is production, and half is fenced off for the tap room. The early hours are nice (opened at 10am on a weekday), but it was definitely slow and quiet, just didnít quite have a buzz to it (although I could see it picking up on a weekend or at night). They employees were friendly enough, but it kinda felt like it was too early, they just werenít "into the swing of things" just yet. There were only eight brews available, two of which were "special brews" that werenít offered as samples, only pints, but the rest could be ordered as a flight - 6 3oz samples for $6. Their souvenirs seemed a bit steep, but nothing too much to complain about (except for the $15 teku glass). Overall not bad, probably worth visiting during a more peak hour though when itís more bustling.

A cool brewery with a tasting room. Had 3 seasonals and specialty beers on tap when I was there. Friendly service, great pricing, good beer.

Stopped by here with my good friend Callipalegic early on a Monday. Tried to stop by here on a previous occasion, but they close very early. I think now I understand why. Located in a sort of industrial area, the brewery is not really a taproom but more of a growler filling station... Walking inside, the first thing Iím greeted with is sort of a cramped reception desk / mailroom. It was like checking into a hotel, really through me off at first. I told the lady at the desk that I was looking for the taproom, she checked our IDs and pointed us to the door, leading to a very large, open, warehouse-like area with a few standing tables. To the left was a long bar with an excessive amount of taps, maybe 30 or more taps, but only 8 or so different beers offered. No seating at the bar. The first thing we were asked was if we needed a growler filled, so I guess thatís the main purpose of this place. They did offer flights and pours in plastic cups, though, so we took advantage. I donít remember what we paid but I remember it being pretty reasonable. There was a core of their 4 flagships, 2 or 3 seasonals, and one barrel-aged rarity (full pours only). Service was reasonable, the bartender was very nice (& very cute), but a little flustered I think because they had just implemented a brand-new POS system and pricing structure. In the same open area (separated by a little fence) was brewing equipment and pallets and shelves of cans and ingredients. Near the bar was a little display that could best be described as the gift shop. Overall, it was worth stopping by to check out, and to try the barrel-aged offering that Iím not sure I would have found elsewhere, but everything else about this place was kind of stark and underwhelming. I would describe it as the "opposite of cozy".

A working brewery warehouse with a crowd of rapid moving people tasting. Assembly line and plastic cups. 6 free samples and lots of merchandise. Not bad if you want to buy or taste.

Stopped in here on a Saturday afternoon. They have a pretty large parking lot outside of what looks like a warehouse. The warehouse is actually their brewing facility, though. Once inside the building I was IDíd and handed two can tops and three tickets. These were to be used to sample the beers they were selling for growler fills. This is a very cool idea. The samples were only 1.5 to 2 ounces, but free is free! Anyway, they had a few of their regular lineup to sample and two special offerings. I was able to get samples of everything and enjoy the atmosphere. Kind of wish they sold drafts to enjoy while there, but they only do growler fills and can sales. Would I come back? Hell yeah! I just wish I could have enjoyed a pint of their beer without having to buy a growler to go.

Won a Growler and a gift card while in Indy so I went to fill it up. Having never been to the brewery before I wasnít sure what to expect. Wow. What a nice place. Very big, bright, and friendly. A row of taps lines one wall with helpful people serving up samples. Lots of room to sample and socialize. Prices seemed very reasonable. Will be back!

Visited on a Saturday afternoon and took the second tour. The tour itself was basically like any other brewery tour. Would have liked to be able to carry a bigger beer than just a sample. They donít sell drafts, but give free samples of whateverís on tap; there were 3 regulars and 4 rotators when we visited and we got 6 drink tickets overall. The lines for pours moved quickly because they were so well staffed. Growler pours are cheap at $6.50 and 4-packs of cans are $11 or so. Tons of merch available. No food. Tour and 6 samples for free- thatís great.
