Open space sharing a the building with a hair salon. Eclectically decorated with a friendly vibe. Service was prompt and enthusiastic. Really enjoyed the beers and wish we could have stuck around longer.

Place seems almost too big. They try to make some odd beers and not all are seccessful. Their mainstays are just ok.

Wide-open pub in a primarily residential area. Nice selection of their own beer and several guest taps. Also has a barbershop as part of the complex so you can get a haircut at the same time. A must-stop in TC.

This is a very unique place, I liked the feel. It is located in an odd spot but it is worth a try. They also have some very interesting beers like Shrute Farms (Beet Ale). A little off the beaten path but Iím glad I made the trip.

This is a must stop. Awesome tap list (although they need to get it online), good service, fun place.

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.
