Fascinating place. As you walk in, it looks more like a restaurant than a brewpub, although there is a large bar on the right. And then behind the bar you notice the taps - a lot of taps. In fact, they span the length of the bar. There are large windows behind the bar that are teasingly covered by posters. Except for the last window on the left, that is. Through it you can see one lone small fermenter. Closer inspection, though, reveals a bunch more fermenters, covered in plastic and about to be hooked up. This explains why they only had one house beer on tap, a tasty black IPA. But they had tons of Founders and Trim Tab stuff on from recent tap takeovers. There were also a couple of things from other local breweries, a welcome sign. And the bottle list was very interesting, with tidbits from near and far - I especially liked the unusual Westbrook bottles. And the coup de grace - the food was excellent. Holy cow, I could live here and be perfectly happy. Just pitch a small tent next to the bar and wait for the fermenters to be hooked up. Selection score will skyrocket once their brewing scales up.

Nice little place, not crowded on a Wednesday. Large marble bar, some tables. Selection in tap not too exciting, but the bottle list was solid. Weird Wisconsin connection. Bartender was friendly and knew his stuff. They had no house beers when i was there, but they still have a Brewmaster, and he is "working on it" brewing equipment is clearly visible, so i hope they are not done. You know, it is possible i was served a beer by Kid Rock...

My wife and I went for the first time last night and we loved it. Everyone was very friendly, the food was great and Patrick, our server, was very helpful pairing our beer and food for us. Good selection on tap and bottled. Weíll be back.

First if you go at night, you should bring ear plugs because itís really, really loud. It has the feel and the attitude of a Gastropub. Didnít try the food but they had 30-35 taps plus 40-50 bottles. They had a nice range of local taps with some regional and national crafts thrown in. The prices of the local stuff were in the $5-$7 which is typical for the area, but some of the prices were fucking ridiculous such as $10 for Evil Twin Hipster and $12 for delirium Noel. I canít say service was particualrly good either Iíll probably go back if they brew but wonít until then.

Well itís a brewpub thatís not brewing yet in the first floor of the old times building. They have strung together several smaller shops to form one big restaurant and bar across several rooms. They annoying have metal ceilings so it gets load in there. They have about 35 beers on tap, though they arenít very fast in updating the board when they run out, which is annoying. The service was decent, though our server didnít seem to know that much about beer beyond the styles. Overall, it has promise, Iíll be back once they start brewing..
