Outstanding tasting room. The tap lists/bottle choices speak for themselves. Without a member in your group you will missout on the best draft options and bottle choices. Make friends. There was an awesome food truck outside also.

Their Saison has always been one of my favorite beers to enjoy on a summer day.

This place rocks. 20+ house taps with $1-$2 samplers. Kind of a warehouse feel but cool. A must stop when in the area.

THE place to be. Lots of wonderful beers available on tap and in bottles, but donít go here if youíre an IPA guy and donít drink anything else. The service was super-friendly, even got a beer for free, that wasnít even available. We really had a blast here, would definitely like to go back.

Large modern tap room with a lot of doors and parts. Empty when I arrived just after opening time on a Sunday, then I turned around five minutes later and every table was full. Decent selection. Worth a stop.

Been visiting since they opened and wow, has this place grown. Actually they started off as a decent size (15 bbl) brewery but back then they only had a couple of local accounts and there were never more than 10 or 15 people in the tasting room. Now, in the new tasting room next door, there are times where the line is out the door and itís impossible to get a seat. Thatís the downside. The upside is that they have 20-30 house taps and plenty of bottles both for on premise and to go. They also sell all the other merchandise that you might expect from a brewery (bottle openers, shirts, hats, glasses, etc).

They dont serve food but they always have food trucks outside and you can bring the food in with you. Theyíre also about a block from a Jack in the Box if you want cheaper greasier food. Parking usually isnt an issue but it can be on event nights. Service is usually very friendly. Prices are a little high (one of the reasons that I never buy growlers here) but compared to their bottles they arent bad.

All around a great place.

The current Bruery facility is a very nice tasting room. Although it can get very crowded, I always manage to find some space and feel relatively comfortable. The tap list is displayed nice and large and everything is available in taster size, which is great. The First Firkin Fridays are always fun to attend and overall a great place to have a beer with some friends.

Great taproom with plenty of seating. You can sample quite a few beers that arenít bottled. Laid-back atmosphere and great staff, whatís not to love?

Stopped by about 9PM with my father in law. The place was a bit hard to find at first, then it became obvious due to the full parking lot and loud conversation. There were about 30 people there on a weekday evening, playing cards, having fun, etc. Overall i enjoyed the experience - they had about 24 beers on tap, including a bunch of tasting room only beers. Decent bottle selection to go as well, including Melange #3. Service was good as well, and prices were extremely reasonable. The primary annoying thing was the fact that they had three taps and several bottles that were "reserve society only" on the menu. Kind of sucks to see a really interesting beer on the list and know that you donít have the "status" to order it.
