Seating areas range from part of the brewery proper and a bar area. Two bars makes it a bit confusing at first to get the exact beer you want, but the tour is a great value. They give you beer tickets so there isnít a cash exchange, but in this case you likely arenít taking a whole flight back to your table. Parking can be a bit tough.

A simple but light filled taproom. Solid beers, without the proliferation of new beers some breweries indulge in. Good friendly service. And of course wonderful brewery sponsored bike rides. Perhaps my favorite brewery in this area. Only food is from food trucks.

Clean, modern tasting room with little seating. Went at 7:30pm on a Saturday, and it was packed with groups of people coming and going to/from tours. The ticket system gets annoying when the bar is slammed, but then there is very little room to set your beers down so one at a time is probably for the best. They had 11 beers on tap, and a flight of 6 six-ounce tasters is only $10 (and they were having a free seventh taster special). Staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful, with a special shout out to Justin. Nice selection of merchandise on offer. Overall a great stop.

Best time to go is Friday at 7 when there is music. Sometimes a food truck will come. Great crowd. Beer is just above average. The Wit, their best seller, is a dinner beer and just not best to dink alone. The pale is average. Drink the IPA!!. Did not taste the Stout.

Dropped in at 4:30 on a Saturday afternoon and the place was mobbed. Amazingly there was still a couple close parking spots. Their tasting room was large enough to accommodate the crowd, but was under appointed -- what, maybe 4 standing tables. They have two bars but it was still a lengthy process to get a drink. I bought a pint, but it appeared like they do samplers as you go, giving you tickets to get the small glasses as you go ... Which gives you a freshly poured beer but makes the bar rail crowded. I enjoy their beers, so glad I could visit once. Not sure I need to back -- you can find their beers easily around town. (Brewery #599)

Located in an industrial area. I only saw limited parking but there may be more elsewhere, and Iím not sure there would be a problem if you parked on the street. Big open, clean, bright tasting room with lots of merchandise for sale. Two bar setups and some tables are scattered around if you want to savor your samples. As of today the sampling is still $7 and you keep the glass. I didnít partake, but they did still give me a couple of partial samples. No tours on Wednesday, so I didnít partake in that. Growler fills were $11.50-$13.50 and they will fill any growler. The lady working was very friendly and well informed enough about the beers that I suspect she is one of the brewers, though I didnít ask. The beers are generally solid to very good. They distribute everything they make widely, so donít expect to find anything new here if youíre a local. Overall, a very nice stop.
