We visited this brewery in 2007, was amongst the first breweries in town. Their beers are ok, however not as good as the ones from their early peers. We liked the stout most. Not so much beer atmosphere, you do not feel any beer passion, more a commercial set up.

Visited once with womencantsail, after the Veritas 007 release.

This isnít a bad place to hang out but their beers arenít very inspiring. Actually that isnít entirely true. Some of the house beers were good but there is one glaring blemish on their record, and that is Love Potion Number 9. What an awful beer. Never again. Service was pretty good and there is plenty of parking in the large strip mall parking lot. We didnít eat but the food looked fine. We were just in a hurry to get to some more breweries before meeting up for the bottle share.

Stopped by a few weeks ago for lunch. The food overall was pretty good with good service. They have a good selection of guest beers but I tried some of there house beers. I felt they were good. The ratings for them on this site was average but the stout and ales I tried were tasty.

Sort of a sports bar vibe to this place. It was pretty empty when I came in, but that was good as we were in a bit of a hurry. Quite a few house beers on tap, but only a couple were really any good.

Brewpub that feels like a chain family restaurant that happens to have a pretty good guest tap selection. House beers tend to be buttery and not worth it in the local market. Theyíre still kickiní though, so something is going right.

A very good place to go-50 taps, a couple casks and VERY tasty food (pork quesadilla was amazing!). have about 9 of their own beers and the rest are local or regional favorates. The watress i had was hot and very friendly. a very cool place!

Located in a strip mall, the place had alot of seating in the front and a small sized bar. The girl behind the counter was absolutely terrible. It was the worst service I have ever experienced at any brewpub. I hope she was just having a bad day or she is going to die very young. The house beers were surprisingly good and they had a nice selection of other local beers. Food was standard and pretty well priced. I would go back only if I had a different bartender.

Standard Brewpub/Restaurant. Place was almost empty when we went. Beer selection and house beer is great. Food is basic.

On the outskirts of SD - in my opinion, but hey, Iím European. A cozy though pretty standard brewpub. But we got extremely great service - if I have to come with one drawback - we hardly had any time to take notes on the beers that we got. Got eight ticks here - but we had to leave to catch a motel in downtown SD. I will come back.

Typical brewpub atmosphere, lots of taps, with a fairly good selection, nothing that rare though. House beers are okay, the food was pretty good. Standard pricing on the beer, but the food was a little pricey.
