Modern decor, small walk up bar mostly for growler fills and pints served in plastic cups. No flights. Fortunately the server was very generous with the samples, served in 2 ounce plastic cups. Beers were OK. Almost unheard of in modern beery America to not serve flights or have decent glassware.

Located in an industrial-feeling area. Big tasting room. Comfortable looking couch setup but no one took advantage of itas people were stopping by mostly for growler fills. The employees were on one hand nice, but on the other hand I felt rushed as I was trying my samples which did not leave me feeling inclined to take advantage of the aforementioned growlers. Growlers are cheap but growler fills are on the high side. The beers are fairly average though they do tend to have some solid wheat beers. Hoppy styles are over hopped and they tend to over carbonate.
And the service score plummets to the lowest possible score because Darren the brewer thinks that just because a competition liked his beer, that means I should like it, and that he should send me a note telling me so in a most rude fashion. Knocking the overall down as well to commensurate. Itís a shame, as this place clearly has a local following and they clearly have potential. Not that Iím from the area, but I was planning on returning next year and this is one place I surely wonít be visiting.
Just got an apology message from the brewer so Iím re-raising the scores a bit. Hopefully this saga is over.
Easy to find location on 65th Street. Parking in front. Small location with 6 table seats and 2 couches. Listing of brews on table with ordering at tap bar area. Freindly and prompt with fre samples of 7 to ten beers. Good beers. Small and regular growlers to go. Worth the visit when in area and I have been twice.
In an industrial area. Nice interior. Staff was extremely attentive and welcoming. Very nice selection of beers - very glad to see such a variety of ales, Belgian and German styles. Pretty convenient to I-69 and 465 for those passing through. Only wish they had later Friday hours - would stop all the time.
I was impressed by Bier. Small and really nowhere to sit, but the staff was incredibly friendly, and they had a nice selection of very good beers. Growlers only at the moment, but theyíll let you sample everything, which was cool. Iíll definitely be back.
Stopped here while in town and gotta say, itís pretty awesome. Tiny brewery, basically a huge homebrew setup right now. But they make outstanding beer. Only had 4 on when we stopped in, though. Service was top notch and dug the clubhouse vibe they had going. Really cool place that Iíll definitely hit again. Growler only for now, but they have samples of everything on tap.
Stopped by with a group of friends from the area. Attentive sufficient staffing behind the counter by the taps. Liked the promotion of tasters before ordering. Had a good selection of beers. Wish they had a tripel on at the time, but they didnít. Nice "homey" seating area. Smells like a brewery, which is bonus points in my book.
Small industrial feel to the building, and a pleasant malty aroma met me as I opened the door. Nice selection of some really solid beers, and the staff was great. Despite a steady stream of people coming in for growler fills, they were very friendly and attentive. Iím looking forward to future visits.
