This is the place listing for the no frills industrial park brewery tasting room, not their "tap room".
Tap list was extensive, 12 house beers on tap. No guest taps. Service was not so friendly. We asked to do a flight of all the beers on tap and were scuffed off with "We donít do flights." Actually, they do. You can get a tasting flight of all 12 beers so Iím not sure what his problem was. Beer quality was below average. Some interesting styles, but overall the beers were scroll past. No food truck.

Pretty sure these guys make a new beer about every 10 minutes. Iíve gone in two or three times and I think only one (maybe two) beers were there a previous time. The problem is, most of the beers are just not good. Most of the staff is nice, but the kid that works there is a bit full of himself. I do feel somewhat honored that myself and HopHead84 fueled a tirade against beer raters that got everyone up in arms about this brewery. Provided me with great amusement.

Packed tasting room in an industrial lot with lots of parking. Doubles as a homebrew store. The whole place smells like buttered popcorn during tasting room hours (as they serve popcorn as snacks, but it is a bit off putting when sticking your nose in beer). Prices are decent, as are the beers. The tasters are RIDICULOUSLY large...7 or 8ozs. Staff was a bit brisk and unfriendly (albeit it was crowded). Not a bad stop.

These guys were a nano/homebrew shop when I stopped in last year but I hear they are expanding their brewery operations. I canít say I loved the beer but I think they have some potential despite an unfortunate blog post some time back...

Small lilí brewery with a good sized tasting bar where you can get tasters or pints of all their beers...they had a guest tap or two as well. Also doubles as a homebrew shop with grains and hops, etc. for sale at the front. Thatís all good and dandy but the beer list was remarkably boring with all the usual boring styles, I tried the saison and the oatmeal stout before deciding I needed to go somewhere with real beer...but decent place should they start brewing more interesting styles...and surprisingly close to my office, only a few exits down the 78 from me.
