Visited twice shortly after opening and by the hyping that Iíve seen from womencantsail lately itís probably time to go back. When they opened they were operating on a large system and doing all extract brewing. The beers were surprisingly decent. The brewer owner (part owner maybe?) was in the middle of brewing when I got there and ran back and forth between the tiny tasting bar and the brewing equipment. He was very friendly and I assumed that his beer could only get better. The second time I came back with animalstylefriescantsail and I swear it was the same batches of everything on tap, and they were getting old. I guess he made more beer than he could sell. It seems that that isnít the case anymore since heís accounts all over the IE now. This is only 6 miles from where Iíll be living so be by occasionally.

Small brewery tasting room separate from the actual brewhouse, which is different from a lot of breweries around here. Okay decor. Only four beers on tap, all simple and uninteresting: a blonde, a red, a pale, and low abv stout. Beer quality was average, nothing to rave about but also nothing that was undrinkable (unlike Area 51, Thompson, and Sons of Liberty). Staff was friendly, tasters all available for $1. Bombers and growler fills. Can find their beers in bombers at certain bottle shops so donít come here expecting to find some one-offs. Easy to find, brewery wise, with ample parking.

Brewery is located in a little shopping center/business park. Stopped in not long after they opened. The beers were just okay, prices were decent. The brewer was serving us and was also quite friendly. Not really close by for me, so I donít think Iíll be back very frequently.

Not bad... but one word... FRUIT FLYS... I had to pick out several out of my beer. Either get the old school German Beer Mugs or just skip it guys. Beer was average... not bad.

Less than a year old, small well operated brewery in an industrial estate. Tasting room is small but has a good look. 4 mainstays and 1 seasonal on tap, usually one or two more. Service is friendly and I understand that they get a few regulars hanging out on weekends. Beers are above average and they are on the verge of expanding to the lot next door.
