This is a small place in a small commercial complex in Kettering. The atmosphere is alright, as is the beer. There are 8 beers on draft. Service was good, and they didnít have a menu, but they had snacks. Worth a stop if youíre in the area, but donít expect to tick any game changers (at least not yet).

Interesting, smaller spot. I went in around 8pm on a Saturday. The place was mostly full of people watching March Madness, I must have stuck out like a sore thumb rating beers on my laptop in the corner... Bartender was a little rushed at first but reasonably friendly and helpful towards the end; canít complain. Place is nothing fancy as far decor, but pretty chill and cozy, I liked it. 6 house beers on tap during my visit. A food truck in the parking lot that I didnít have a chance to check out. Reasonable prices. Solid place overall, would revisit.

DBC is a small brewery tucked in a storefront on Dorothy Lane in Kettering. The tap room is really cozy, with a short bar and a few tables. But I liked the atmosphere. A brewer and bartender were on hand, young guys who were super friendly and helpful. 10 taps, but a couple were in transition so there were 8 when I visited. Growlers and half growlers are available. Prices are good. The beer is solid. Nice little place. Iím sure Iíll be back soon.

I love small, local establishments and wish these guys well. Based on my admittedly brief visit, they still have some work to do. The 4 beers I sampled ranged from very good to technically flawed. The staff was efficient but a bit aloof, along with the couple other people in this small place with the feel of a basement bar. Also wasnít impressed with the cost of the flight for what they give you. Positives included the munchies on the bar, if youíre into empty, salty carbs. Iíll try again someday.

This place is a small storefront in a retail building. Very attractive bar area that had a few tables and a small bar. The staff was very friendly and knowledgable and the brewer was there Saturday night as well. There were a steady stream of people in and out, including several people filling growlers. They had eight of their own beers on tap, all of which were pretty solid. Five dollar, four beer samplers. Worth stopping by, and I hope they get enough traction to thrive. No food though.

Let me say this up front: Iím super excited that these guys started up a brewery in Dayton. This is a small operation that will obviously experience pretty big variations in production and uniformity as they get settled. Nice service, nice feel and average beers right now but hopefully they can last long enough to find a good groove. Iíll definitely be stopping by regularly to add to their bottom-line.

IPAlove is an obvious troll who has something out against these guys. I stopped in last night to check them out for the first time. Small place. A few tables outside, a few inside, and a short bar. There really isnít a lot of room in the tasting room and could only imagine what the place would feel like on a Friday or Saturday. Clean and comfortable, though. They only had three beers on tap during my visit, porter, stout, hefeweizen. The porter and stout were good and I thought the hefeweizen was missing something. Brewing is done on a 1.5bbl system. The owner/brewer was pouring beers and he seems like a friendly and enthusiastic guy. Overall, Iíd say itís a pretty standard, if small, brewery tasting room. The beers are decent and Iím assuming they will improve in time. Worth a stop if in the area.

Pretty dingy. Terrible locations. Beer was piss warm. This place wonít last long. Only busy from the opening weekend, I canít wait for other area breweries Iím sure they will be better than this! Overpriced! Investors get your money back and RUN!
