I am not sure where the picture came from in the listing, but it does not look like that at all. Located in an industrial complex, the tasting room is in the very front. There is limited signage that indiciates when to go in so I sat in the parkling lot for 15 minutes trying to figure out if i was in the right place. Once I figured it out I had a very enjoyable Thursday evening. They had 8 beers on tap plus 2 on cask. Mostly their standard offerings but also a couple barrel aged beers. Very friendly staff...I actually got an impromtu tour of the brewery from an employee who was sitting at the bar having a pint. Nice atmosphere and really a great place. No food, but it appears you can bring your own.

Nice place. Usual brewery style warehouse. Staff was extremely nice and knowledgeable. Definitely worth a trip.

Visited the tap room for the first time last night and was pleasantly surprised. Quiet and clean tasting room. Nicole was knowledgeable and friendly. since I was driving I enjoyed the $2, 5 ounce glasses. I tried their Gold, Cutlass Amber, Peg Leg, and Winter Storm Cask which was the best of the selection. Was disappointed that Black Canon wasnít available.

Place was OK. On had their beers, not surprisingly. Staff was not knowledgable about beer. Friendly enough, though. Worth a visit for some not readily available elsewhere, but not for anything else.

I feel this isnít fair to rate as itís going through a renovation, but Iíll do my best to be fair.

The brewery is located in an industrial park that isnít very appealing, graffiti is abound in the area. The brewery is being renovated, but the gift center offers some good prices on shirts, glassware, and growler fills. We were toured by the owner due to a chance of luck and he was kind enough to explain what they were doing. The new tasting area is shaping up nicely and Iíd visit again once they finish. The tasting room currently offers 7 beers, one being a cask ale.

Overall right now I see no real reason to stop in unless you have never had any beer. I saw nothing that isnít on shelves other than a dry hopped Loose Cannon Cask, which was good. Stop in by the end of the year though to see the brewery anew.

Brew tour followed by build a cask with the brewers for StateLine. As soon as you walk in they have shirts/signs and other stuff for sale. Every one is friendly and ready to hand out beer. 6 or 8 taps for sampling. 1 cask. Tour is typical.... we saw the hop fridge, bottle/keg line, ferm tanks, etc... They just purchased the building next to them so now they have extra room and are planning a nice expansion. After the tour some more brew and we helped dry hop a cask of peg leg and loose cannon. Pretty cool that they let us do that and a great marketing ploy on their part. Every one is chill and friendly. Good times overall and highly reccommended tour.

Typical warehouse brewery with high ceilings and stacks of beer ready to be shipped out. Normally only open on Saturdays for brewery tours. Tours start and end in the small tasting room for a few samples and the chance to purchase some well-designed merchandise. Occasionally open their doors to offer great beer/food events and to support local homebrew competitions. Great staff and AHA members can tour for free.

Came here on a Saturday morning for the tour. $5 for the tour and they give you a pint glass to take home with, and five tokens which are redeemable for 4 ounce (or about that) pours at the bar. The tour itself was pretty good, but really if youíve been on one brewery tour, theyíre all the same. ďHereís the area we store our beer after itís packaged. Hereís where we brew. Hereís the cold room. Hereís the fermentation tanks.Ē The tour guide was one of the brewers, which did make it nice, though he said that all of the workers sort of rotate through giving the weekly tours. So sometimes you might get the guy who runs the packaging line who will want to tell you all about packaging, and not so much about what theyíre brewing at the time, or get super excited about the new hop shipment, etc. There are bottles available for purchase here, but at the time there wasnít anything really rare, and no bombers, just cases of their regular lineup. Good experience overall. The workers here really make the place.
