Been visiting off and on (mostly after trips to More Beer which is about a mile from here) since they opened. They are basically homebrewers that started a brewery. They bought their equipment from Old Baldy Brewing (RIP) when they upgraded to a larger system. Some of the equipment is home made too. Anyway, these are really nice people but the beer is lacking and the tasting room is tiny.

They do a pro am beer every year so at least once a year you can try a "winning home brew recipe". I donít want to hate on them too much since they occasionally make a decent beer. Iíll continue to stop in and see what theyíre up to.

Everything I tried there seemed to have an off flavor to it. The contamination must have managed to make its way in to all their beer lines and tubing. Sanitization of equipment may be lacking. Staff were way cool so that helps but If I wanted off flavor ale Iíd ferment in my home depot bucket that I use out in the garden. Went there for a beer fest their beer by far was the worst, the food that was provided gave everyone the shits that ate it.

Around back of an industrial compound, no signs. Just trust Google maps, go into the gated compound that is 1710 Palmyrita Ave, and head towards the back on entrance side on the right. Blacked out windows, very small suite. Their setup is a small tasting room with rolling kegerators and taplist on a chalkboard. Brewing area is cramped in the back with 4 FVs and 4 pilot batch makeshift FVs. Lots of spiderwebs and old food lying around in the brewing room -__- Beers on tap were interesting, nothing stellar, and a very strange. heavy, medicinal beer that was called a DIPA. The rest of their beers were extremely dry and overattenuated. They also had a bizarre gypsy brewed beer called Trail Blazer Red that is not their own beer, though the taplist didnít note this teeny tiny tidbit of information. It was significantly worse than the house beers. Brewery tour was fun, though the area to tour is wildly small. Seems like an undercapitalized business model seeing their capacity even after 4 years. They do growler fills and have some select bombers to go. One tiny problem was that during the brewery tour, the guys pouring beers seemed to disappear so returned to three customers that could have easily poured themselves a few growler fills for free. Big plus was the pricing: got a bomber and 10+ tasters for $19.

Stopped here with a whole crew of degenerate tickers (biggirlpanties, ChinoSkillzian, GT2, and t0rin0). Small tasting room with movable kegerators. About 10 beers on tap, all available by the glass or as samples. Service was adequate, nothing really noteworthy either positive or negative. Beers were all rather dry and mediocre and the prices were decent. If youíre a total degenerate, itís worth a stop, otherwise, not worth going out of your way for.

These guys were pretty awesome. If you like beer... can talk beer... they will stay and talk beer. They stayed an hour past close to talk beer. Supper nice, great beers... and the best Scottish "bourbon" ale Iíve ever had!

Cool friendly little brewery with a tasting room up front. They have 6 year rounds on tap. Victoria and Porter are excellent. They also have 5 seasonal handles although only 1 was hooked up when I was there. Saw some sours aging in the back and will return for those. Tasters are $1 each. Brewers are friendly. Tasting room has full growlers and 1 litres, as well as merchandise and a bunch of beer mags if you want to hang out for a while. Brewery is small but they rae just doubling their space next door.

Tiny little place that just opened. Located in an industrial complex in a tiny warehouse. They have a nice tasting area up front and are happy to show off the 7 barrel brewing system in the back. Open for growler fills, but sadly the law requires $1 charge per beer sample.

Super small and located in an industrial complex. They did a very nice job with the room they have, a 6 tap (only 4 in use) industrial keg fridge dispenses the beer, only samples available to consume on location, 1ltr growlers available to go. Have a very nice bathroom (almost as big as the tasting room), with the brewery located in the opposite direction, also very small, 7 barrel I believe. Parking is also hard to come by on a busy day. Neat place .
