Perfect location right off the exit with easy return. Medium sized parking lot. Nice Biergarten with tables and chairs and nice shady areas to sit and relax. Inside is a little small but a/c works. Only 5 ales on tap and only a few items in bottles or by the case if you already know what you want. We sampled all of the ales they had at the time and they were pretty good. Maybe not the best but unique enough to be satisfying. Prices are not bad either, fairly reasonable. No food but they had a Fish Taco truck and a cupcake truck show up. They rotate different trucks when available. They had water available and you can bring your own food if you wish. Service was good, very attentive and knowledgeable. I wish they had more items available from their list. Guess Iíll just have to go back again sometime to see whatís new. Overall an enjoyable experience and a relaxing afternoon.

Kind of an odd atmosphere here. Reminds me of an old doctors office waiting room. It was cozy though. The beer ranges from mediocre to really nice. Not my favorite place to hang out but worth a stop for their sours.

Stopped here on a Saturday evening for a round. Really reminds me of the types of small pubs/breweries I visited in Belgium or France - small seating area, simply furnished with games on the tables, a serving bar area and barrels of fermenting beer right in the seating area - leaving a pleasant estery undertone to the whole place. Service was very attentive and friendly. Beers on tap and in to-go bottles were in abundance (why no growler fills?). No food, but you can bring/order in your own while you drink. Not the best locale, but if I lived in Millvale within walking distance, Iíd probably hang out here all the time.

Went to this place for a monthly beer club meeting. Has own parking lot which is a plus in Millvale. Ambiance is very welcoming and cozy. About 6 wood tables and a small bar area with subdued lighting and a german beer basement feel to it. Basically the place is only a sampling room for their beers and not a brewpub, hence why they have short hours and no food. Owners are real upstanding nice guys and I found the beers to be very fairly priced vs. their quality. They are very accommodating and welcome you to bring in your own food. Tasted everything on their flight then they busted out a few very small samples on the house of stuff they were currently working on including a to die for blackberry lambic. Awesome place, hope it takes off.

This place is great! Nothing like any other brewery iíve ever seen. The selection needs to step it up, but definetly a nice place. The beers are World Class! When you make beer that good, i dont care what the place looks like. The most important aspect is the beer and theres a lot more "actual" certified beer judges that i have met that have agreed that Draai Laag beers are well noted. Iíve been out of the area for a while and its nice to see these guys doing well. Keep it up Draai Laag!

Wow, not really quite sure where to start with this place. I walk inside an am immediately hit with a strange uninviting castle type theme. Bar has huge wooden chairs to which anyone shorter literally has trouble climbing onto. Place is just ridiculously pretentious. candle lit throughout, classical music playing, fancy books behind the bar, tiny fancy hand made flight glasses and racks, menus that looks like they have been cooked in the oven to appear to be old scrolls, and bartender who are standoffish, not very talkative, and wearing shirt and tie. Even the bathroom is strange with the look of a slaughter house floor combined with Navajo wallpaper. Selection is small, only 5 beers on tap, but they are all at least quality Belgians. No food except "Soup, $25.00" listed on the menu. Not sure if thatís a joke or what. Beers are expensive too, mostly $7 for a 10 oz pour, or $10 for a $10 total flight. Overall not worth the time unless you want ticks and are driving right past the place. Nothing here even remotely attempts to draw in the local crowd either. A real shame because most of the beers are at least solid Belgian entries, they just need to focus on beers and relax on the snooty gimmick.

Some of, if not, the best Belgian Style Beer I have ever had. Yes pricey, 7-8 a glass, some beers more, but the taste is out of this world! The Girtys is great!

Interesting place. Itís a warehouse that has an upscale (dare I say pretentious?) bar stuck inside of it. Classical music, literature displayed, very dark lighting. I did not eat though there was one cryptic option on the menu. "Soup 25.00." Maybe thatís some legal loophole allowing them to serve food without serving food? The bartenders were nice enough but standoffish. Beers were generally solid. Prices are very high, especially for the $1.00 per ounce sampler (5 x 2oz.)! Enough parking.

Itís a simple start up craft brewery, but these guys are doing it right. Every dollar they earn goes back into the brewery. The ambiance and all that crap is non-existent, because this is a small two barrel brewery selling growlers and cases straight out of the brewhouse. Thereís some counters and a tile floor, the owner/brewer standing behind one of the counters with the barrels in the back room. But you know what, the owners and brewers will talk with you as long as you like and the beer is so great. Every time you take a look thereís something new with this place. Check it out. If you follow their twitter account, youíll find out what theyíre doing the coming Friday night. I highly advise doing this since they sometimes will be sold out or on the other hand will sometimes be offering some cool stuff if you show up.
