Ambiance: Industrial park, lots of parking. Inside is a biker wannabe death metal combo, but they seem to really go after the gonzo metal stuff wholeheartedly. They seem to take the whole aesthetic extremely seriously, and are true to their schtick. Service: Great. Came on a Saturday with snow threatening, so not too busy. Bartender was attentive and not pushy, but extremely knowledgeable. Gave a couple of free 3 oz pours, too! Selection: They had about seven taps, with a few others kicked. A handful of bottles for sale too. What they did have ran the gamut. This place only does one-offs, seemingly, with some of the individual beers barrel-aged for variety. That makes for a different experience every time you come. Had several beers that were very good, and bought a bottle to bring home that turned out to be one of the top 20 beers Iíve ever had. Food: N/A. Value: Reasonable, given the quality and complexity (clearly indicative of labor-intensive efforts) of the brews. They sell their glassware, and the small sampler glasses are a great purchase. Overall: Worth a visit for the experience.

We visited after sampling Old 690 Brewing in Hamilton, which is a family-friendly venue in a bucolic setting. By contrast, Adroit Theory is in a light industrial park with bikerr/heavy metal vibe. It definitely has a unique atmosphere, and the beers seemed much more inventive. I liked this place.

A pretty cool place thatís pretty easy to find. Parking isnít much. About a dozen beers on tap, only one of which was for BHS (Black Heart Society) members only. The beers are quite solid across the board. All pretty darn high in ABV. Worth a visit.

A hip hangout for locals in a large industrial space. The brewery, however, is tiny and thus experimentation of beers leads the way here. Twelve beers available on tap to drink on site although none were below 7.5% so make of that what you will. Beers were solid enough but thank goodness for the 3oz pours are the beers are heavy going. Bottles available for takeaway but pricey. We had a great bartender who couldnít be more enthusiastic working in a brewery. Bustliní Saturday crowd. Nice to visit.

In the back of an industrial area, the crowded and kid friendly bar is decent sized and very local. Lots of beers on tap and tasters of each available. Service was decent, but so busy that they didnít spend too much time with us. Decent place but the beer wasnít that great for me.

Metalesque theme with taster samples - dozen beers on. Beers are decent enough.

Like this place a lot. Comfortable vibe. Upscale but also in a big garage with a huge patio. Plenty of parking. Staff was helpful and friendly, though they did piss me off at the end by selling me a bottle and then saying nevermind we canít sell you that. 9 beers on tap, though one was not available to regular folks (though one bartender gave me a small sample). Beers were available in 4-ish ounce snifters for $3-4.50. Larger pours were in the 9-ish range. Corked and capped half liters for 12. The beer was overall good in quality. Not a place you want to go if you want to session some solid beers, as they are all experimental and the lowest ABV was 7.1%. One beer was a little overly weird and soapy (lavender beer) but generally the quality was very good, the standouts being a rum barrel imperial porter, a brandy barrel old ale, a chili pepper IPA and an El Dorado single hop IPA. Nice place and I will visit again.

Garage with a bar. Not being into metal music, I found the music irritating which makes me feel a little surly about the service which was pretty slow. We got a sample of one of each of what they had on tap which was a full eight today. No food truck in attendance today so we ate the granola bars we had in the car. Prices average. Glad we stopped in, but the overall experience could have been better. Especially after it took us four hours to get here (traffic sucked).

Adroit is a bit of a self-hyped place but their beers are solid and mostly back this bold assertion. The staff seemed fairly robotic in serving their patrons and also did not seem to mind having folks wait a while for service. The place is large and open with smooth tones of dark rock competing with lingering conversations throughout the bar. I liked the beer but find the exclusiveness of several offerings off-putting and a little presumptuous. All-in-all this is a nice place to spend your afternoon enjoying some bigger beers.

Cool brewpub for metalheads not super far from D.C. in the back of what looks like an old industrial junkyard - just the kind of place youíd think metalheads would set up a brewpub. The beers are generally above average and well done. Taste flights available. Only downside is this graduated member program thing for some of their better beers. Not sure if this will work for them in terms of impressing not so common customers, but maybe they donít care.
