Nice little tasting room in an industrial area of Concord. They have a bar with about 6 or 7 seats and a few small tables with stools. The draft list was very nice when I was there with most of their regular offerings and a few exclusive beers. They also had some of their tap room only stuff available in hand bottles in the cooler. Pretty cool. Also GREAT prices on their limited barrel aged beers. I got a few bottles of the bourbon barrel porter for $8 each. I noticed the quality of the beers was a lot better than I’ve had in bottles… much fresher and cleaner. The dude behind the bar was friendly enough as were the handful of people that were hanging out. I think these guys are a tad under rated around here.

Industrial park. Tasting room has a nice vibe to it (lots of wood paneling, a sit down bar and some tables, a big TV). 8 taps or so. Sadly the tasting room has no view to the brewery which is in the back. I had the honor of brewing on the 15 barrel system which was a blast but probably not very pertinent to this review. Plenty of parking and a little bit out of the way. The beer is pretty decent so it is probably worth a stop. They do have a barrel program and a few sour barrels that will be keg only and probably only at the brewery if that is any incentive.

Very nice small tasting room in an industrial area. The sampler was a nice way to start the weekend.
