Pretty cool large space nestled in a nondescript industrial park. Huge expansive warehouse with tall ceilings. Underwhelming outdoor "patio" with space heater and access to food trucks. Beer is average. IPA was pretty good but unfortunately most of their beers are of blander styles. And you canít just buy a beer here; you need to buy a glass first. Not a bad concept if your beer is stellar. Only open on Fridays and last Friday of the month has live music. Kid friendly.

This place is not open to the public other than a couple hours on Fridays for growler fills, and "Beer Friday" on the last friday of each month. However, they have a really interesting space, and do a lot of catered events. I was there for one of those events. They have a stage, a large reception area, bar, some seating, and an outdoor patio. Pretty nice setup, and for events the beer is free! I had fun, despite the fact that the beer is not the best. I think pints are normally $6, and they donít do tasting flights.

Visited in February 2013.
Hadnít been since 2005 when they were only open one Friday a month and since I certainly have spent enough time in Belmont I figured it was time for a revisit. I think their Friday hours are really just for people to come fill growlers and buy bottles since there was pretty much no one else there. They dont do flights or samples but we grabbed a pint each and got a taste of one or two of the others before heading out. There really wasnt much going on but that also meant that there were no lines for beer. Tried a couple of the regulars like the blonde and the IPA as well as a light spiced beer and some Belgian blonde. Regardless of what you think of the beer there isnít much going on at this place unless you visit on a Beer Friday (I think itís the last Friday of the month) in which case theyíll have bands and a lot more people and actually stay open late enough to visit after work.
