Hello David Hunter, Itís Darren. I in no way was condescending to you that night, I never made fun of you and I treat my patrons with respect (if anything I make fun of myself each and every night). I simply asked you why you did not clean your growler. Your growler still had 2 inches of beer in it and the growler and cap were encrusted with mold. No bartender would ever fill that growler with beer. Another patron told you to take it to the restroom to clean it, not me. It would have taken 10+ minutes in order to properly clean and sanitize your growler. On a busy Friday night that is not a possibility. This is why all the bartenders politely ask the customers to immediately rinse out and clean their growlers when they are empty. Dawn was a table away that night, if you were unhappy with my service why didnít you turn to her? Dawn does a great job at the brewery and so does Kaitlyn. So David, instead of calling me names (neanderthal), calling Dawn, and calling my boss, why donít you just come in and talk to me. I NEVER once put you down, you were just mad because I wanted you to pay $4 extra for a new glass.

Small but offers great beer. Did not have the food but i hear the pizza is good. Wide variety with over 14 taps flowing with their own beers. Many seasonals when i was in and the flight is solid!

Small, small, small place. I personally feel that their beer is the highest quality. Maybe they have 6 beers on tap, but all 6 beers are true to style. I would actually frequent this place, but it is a little too far away. You can order standard pub fare at the restraunt next door. Great clean true-to-form beer, and approachabel waitstaff.

A neat out of the way place. The staff was exceptional, as was the patio at 5pm on a sunny 65 degree afternoon. Reports on the connecting pizza joint are all favorable, but my party didnít sample anything.
ps - the homebrewed root beer is as good or better than the original A&W on tap at roadside stands 40 years ago.

Great selection of beers and friendly service. The Grand Poobah Russian Imperial Stout on tap was world class. The restaurant is family friendly. Highly recommended for a trip.

Well for ambiance nothing better than beer Geek bar. very small and friendly with eager service. No food but there is a pizza shop and I think you can order in. A handful of their own beers and some nice guest bottles.

Small bar on the right/back and pizza restaurant on the left/front. Pleasant place with a nice selection of their own beers. Worth a visit.

Great brew pub in its infancy, only showing promise for the future. A small nook backed by a reputable staff, great example of simplicity meets elegance. Limited capacity, take advantage of outdoor seating while the weather is tolerable. Only two beer on tap at a time for now but they go fast!! Blonde Ale and Porter currently on tap. The porter is distinct in its ability to seperate the chocolaty flavors from the bitter hoppiness. I would recommend the blonde ale to anyone visiting a brew pub for the first time. Only better things to come. See you Sept. 27th for Oktoberfest !

Small brewpub with a pizza parlor. Small bar area, (7 tables and 5 seats at the bar). The beers on tap were Sara Blonde Ale and Kil Mister Stout and while both were very good I favored the stout. Very flavorable and tasty. Talked to Jim Cibak for quite some time and I concluded that there are many more good things to come at this establishment and I look forward to making many revisits to try whatís new on tap. A definite stop if in the area.
