Visited with Aaron and Bobby. Kind of a cool place. Combination brewery, homebrew shop, and garden store. They grow their own hops, keep bees, etc. Nice outdoor patio area with a small window to order at (they also have a bar area inside). The service was very friendly and quick. They had 10 beers and they werenít bad, but mostly just mediocre. All of them were sort of just generically sweet. Would be a fun place to hang out if the beers were better.

Visited October 6, 2013.
We stopped in on a warm sunny afternoon and sat out on the deck next to the hop yard and tried all the house beers. This is a pretty interesting place all around. They grow fruits, vegetables, bees, and hops here. They use a lot of this stuff in their beers. Speaking of which, the beers were all just OK. A lot of them tasted like honey. The server was nice but the setup was a bit strange. If you order from outside they hand you the beer through a small window and it takes forever to pour the beers, not to mention that the wind was blowing into the building so they wanted to keep the window shut most of the time. Iím not sure if they do live music here but they have a stage set up on the deck outside. Itís out in the suburbs so you dont have to deal with the same level of yuppie that you would in town. This could be a fun place to hang out provided the beer got a little better.

Iím not sure why this place has such low ratings. I very much enjoyed the ambiance, the service and the beer. The ambiance being the most memorable and the beer solid enough to back it up. This place grows their own hops which they use in a few of their brews. The hop vines are very close to the outside deck which overlooks the distant glorious mountains, making for an absolutely beautiful sight. They have a small tasting room inside with a few tables in addition to a covered area surrounded by vegetation which is the most chill spot to drink a beer. I had their double IPA which was very good. Solid hops and no off flavors. There was a small barbecue cart set up outside. I was starving and got some nachos. They were a good value and the barbecue was comparable to the places out this way. I have got to find someone that is doing Carolina style cue somewhere.

This place is relatively hidden but worth visiting. They grow their own hops, and sell hop plants in the Garden Center in which they are housed. They also have a homebrew supply store in the garden center. The taproom is nice and there are two large drinking areas. One is outside, and they have live music out there, looking out over the hop field. The second is inside, with plenty of tables, spacious, and brightly lit. I tried two beers, one was very good and the other pretty good.

Located off the Windsor I-25 exit, this place is housed in the same building as some kind of outdoor/garden store. The actual tasting room is a bit tricky to find on the far end of the store. They grow their own hops for their beers which is kind of cool. The beer quality was pretty advanced for a new brewery and the service was fantastic. Recommended.
