Great beer with a number of choices. Food is pretty limited and they need some time to grow into their space. The beer is well worth the visit.

Was there Sunday night and did a sampler....left with a growler. The beer selection was very odd! I LOVED EVERY ONE.

Reviewing the new location: itís an interesting place! Big, very loud vibes. Very young crowd, and this is coming from a young guy himself. Definitely an industrial feel & serve yourself, but great art on the walls. Selection was very impressive, which is the factor is take most seriously. Decent value. A new, haphazardly creative brewery, and the pub reflects it - which isnít necessarily a bad thing.

Just checked out the new digs on the honeymoon. Early afternoon, so just a handful of people were trickling in. They had about 20 beers on tap, plus local wine and cider and Wild Billís root beer, which the lady insists is fantastic. The new place is very easy to get to from downtown, and itís extremely spacious. Lots of cool art hanging everywhere. Our beerslinger was very helpful with the knowledge on the beers. Right Brain has a new head brewer, and he is already putting his stamp on the place. The Von Trapp and Concrete Dinosaur were really good, and the whiskey barrel Hawk Owl was awesome, too. Theyíve reformulated a couple old standbys to improve their quality as well. $5.25/$6.50 a pint/snifter is a touch pricy, but the sampler pours are a generous 6 oz. and with so many different beers on at any given time, thatís the way to go, even for $15. Glad I got to check it out and next time weíre in TC, we will be back for sure. Bring your own food!

At the new pub on the south side, still doing some finishing touches. Good selection of 8-10 different beers. Only tried 2 and they were quality beers. The place has good character, will definitely go back.

Easily the best place in TC to sample a good beer. Every time that I am there the list of beers has changed so I always start with a sampler. They do not really serve food, just some snacks. The only thing that would make this better is if it was overlooking the bay.

A nice place hidden back in an old factory building. A nice laid back ambiance. Staff is friendly. Some snacks but no real food available. A fair number of taps with more hits than misses. Beers are well priced.

Visited twice on a long weekend visit to the area. It was busy on our evening visit and empty the next afternoon. I like it because it doesnít try to be anything but what it is: a place at their brewery where you can buy their beer.

This is an interesting place with an interesting vibe. I canít think of a word to describe it, but I really like the character of this place. When Iím in, itís usually a younger crowd, so maybe itís a kind of college bar feel, but with casual conversation as opposed to boisterous, hormonally charged drunks. The difficult to find location and poor signage helps add to the interesting feel of the place.
There is no waitstaff, so you have to walk to the bar to get a drink, but Iíve never had to wait long, and the bartenders are friendly.
The beer isnít as amazing as when it first opened - a change in brewers kind of messed things up for a while - but itís still top notch and they still push the envelope on creativity.
There are always plenty of unique offerings on the menu, and I always leave wanting more of what I drank.
Thereís no kitchen here, but I donít come here for food. Iím happy that they keep the focus on making adventurous beers.
