After several visits back, I decided it was time for an update. The ambiance really hasnít changed despite put tables in. The downside is there isnít any table service. So you wait in line at the small bar area, then take your beer and sit down. Long lines can form and there isnít much of a rhyme or reason to how they serve people. Staff range from surly to unattentive to nice. There also seem to be a lot of staff just standing around. Pot luck there. Food is mediocre and overpriced. Unfortunately there isnít any mind blowing beer either. Most of it is average, some below average. I want to like this place because itís nearby, but itís just not worth stopping by on a repeated basis unless you want to tick off unrated brews.

November 2013. For a Saturday night dinner, the place was well occupied, but easy enough to find seating at the ample, party-sized tables. There was live music. I like their style here -- open tabs they can get to on any register, a hearty lineup of pretty darn good brews and some entertaining food. This place kinda reminds me of the old Old Dominion place across town. The staff was a blend of friendly and fun and dumb and stoic. All the same, I really enjoyed this place and will definitely go back. Brewery #637.

No table service, crowded, loud, bad climate control, mediocre beers.

Visited on a Friday afternoon. Industrial place, but great atmosphere for having a beer. No frills, good beer, food at the counter.

Itís another brewery in an industrial park although it didnít feel like a warehouse on the inside. They have a smallish bar in the main room and also one in an adjacent room. We didnít have a lot of the food but the pretzels could have used more salt. The beers range from average to solid and with a dozen different varieties, thereís enough to pique anyoneís interest . I liked that you can buy 4 ounce and half pint glasses of most of the brews. Unlink a couple of the other posters, I found the servers friendly and cordial. Itís nice to have such a solid tap room so close to Sterling.

Finally got a chance to stop by here. Located in a "technology park," i.e. not so dingy industrial park. Parking is ample. Large open space with a bar and lots of tables. Bright and open. Food is available, which surprised me as I thought this was a production brewery, but they do indeed have a kitchen and full menu. No sampler available but 5 oz. pours are available for variable prices ($1.50-$2.25 on my visit). The beer was pretty solid, and I thought one was a standout, but it was a wheat ale, and the 105 degree heat index may have been a factor. In any case, the beer was good. I did not eat, but the menu looked good, and prices were solid. The place was pretty busy around 3PM on a Friday. The bartender was a little bit surly, but not too bad. Overall, Iím glad I stopped by and will be back. UPDATE: Tried the food, and itís a touch bit above average and a touch bit overpriced. The beer was a little underwhelming this visit, but I wonít hold that against them as theyíre generally very good.

This place is pretty amateurish. All the beers are just ok. No big beers to speak of, not even a double ipa. The menu was tiny to begin with and they were out of 3 items. Iíd rather buy a four pack of good beer and cook at home. Pretty lame.

Bottom line up front: Donít waste your time going to this place. Today, Saturday July 7th, is the first, and last time, I will ever visit this place, and the last time I will support this company by drinking any of their beers. Stopped in to have a tasting to find a nice crowd, not at all unable to be managed by the 10 or so staff members that were present. I stood in line with two people in front of me and after 15 minutes, I $%^# you not, 15 minutes, was able to order a taste. During the 15 minutes of waiting, I observed staff members hanging out, joking, drinking beers, and playing grab-ass while the line of potential customers began to thicken. Other customers were complaining of the crappy service. Donít get me wrong, it is a great thing to have a place where staff can enjoy a conversation, drink some beers, and have a good time, but lets take care of the customers first. At one point, a service member staff with black hair standing near the end of the bar looked at me with a scowl, like "what are you doing here?" jolily re-engaging in his conversation and beer while me (and a bunch of other customers) stood there and waited. I ordered a 5 oz pour of their Face Plant IPA, and thought it was pretty average for an IPA. I decided not to wait in line again for another taste of this brewerís very, very average beer. Overall, a homebrewer set up in a warehouse; very very average at best. Donít waste your time stopping here...nothing really worth while. Sorry about the piss-poor review, but the small bit of good things I mentioned in this review were much more than this place deserves.

Great to see a new brewery in the area. Favio showed us around, was happy to chat about brewing, his future plans, etc. A restaurant will be added at some point, heíll brew seasonals, probably starting with an Oktoberfest. Very friendly staff. Place is very industial and still under construction, but itís definitely worth a visit. Or maybe more than one visit!

Nice, small brewery packed away in a light-industrial park. Friendly staff. Had a brief tour of the brewery, then tasting and growler fill. A bit confined in terms of space, but I think theyíll do just nicely. Some gifts can be purchased there, as well on top of growlers to go. Selection doesnít exactly count since theyíre only offering up their 3 beers, so Iíll give it a fair rating at the moment. Itís certainly worth a drop in to see how things are going and grab a growler of their beer.

Update: Been there quite often over the last year and a half. Staff is friendlier than ever, place is busy. Food is decent and well priced and the growler fills are reasonably priced. Most beers are available in three different sizes (5oz, 10-12oz, 16oz). In all my visits, Iíve never seen them with less than 6 of their offerings available on tap, and Iíve often seen them with at least 8 available. They also have guest taps available from other breweries - usually a VA or DC brew.
