Nice looking place, with lots of outdoor and indoor seating, surrounded by trees. Plenty of parking available. Large bar in the center with a floor-to ceiling island in the middle. Taplist was pretty nice, with good guest beers and several of their own brews on tap. Flights of four available, and you can mix in guest beers. Service was kinda disinterested for the most part. Food specials were decent; I had two meat-packed short rib tacos for $6. I actually thought the beers were no worse than so-so, and did not get any apple, so hopefully they have taken care of that little issue. Oh, and its now called Twisted Oak (still Lab Brewing though). All in all, not a bad place..

Visited once in the summer of 2012.

Theyíve got a decent amount of house beers on at any given time, so thats good for ticking efficiency, and they have some good guest beers on, but over all the place didnt impress me. The house beers were mostly appley, as in fermented poorly. This of couse could be fixed in subsequent batches so Iíll give it another try the next time Iím at Ladyface.

Service was a bit slow as there was one bartender and she spent most of her time talking to what I assume were regulars at the bar.

Samples were expensive but at least they will include guest beers in the flights. As I said, Iíll give it one more try. Hopefully it gets better.

In a little strip mall. Beers are awful for the most part, only a couple of half drinkable ones. The house beers are your best bet. Place is pretty pricey, especially considering the quality of the beer. It was $10 for a sampler with 4 beers! Wonít bother to come back.

small place near ladyface. Clean enough and good service. Beer needs some work.

Beer is hit and miss. Milk Stout was good, but the others were underwhelming.

Visited for a late lunch. They have been open for about a week now. Easy parking (lot adjacent, plenty of room). Nice looking place. Sit down restaurant and a slightly separate bar area with a few tables as well. 2 HD tvs at the corners. Full bar. Brewing system is a good looking 14 bbl (apparently) Pub brewing system (which means a nice copper coating). Service was friendly and attentive. They do have sampling flights. 5 house beers on tap as well as quite a few guest taps (all craft, but nothing very special or even particularly local). Sampling flights are 4 beers and $12 (which seems to me to be on the pricy side of things). Food was good, and reasonably priced for the area. House beers were decent overall, but still have some room to dial them in (carbonation and hop utilization wise). Nothing undrinkable in the slightest and I am very confident they will improve quite soon. Worthy stop inbetween Ladyface and Wades. Iíll be back.
