Visited with a friend on October 12, 2012. Did not eat, not sure if you can. They had 6 of 7 beers on tap, the only one missing was due to they had delivered it to GABF and had one in the fermenter that wasnít done yet. Great service. Inside is mainly black with some paintings. Music is metal, though not super loud so OK to talk still. Cool neighborhood place that Iíd go back to.

Dark, low lit room with metal music playing and Gothic art on the walls. Beer was rather boring and not ecceptuonal. Service was good though. Happy they had tasters of most stuff and price was decent.

dark, black, sort of cramped, but i dig it. lots of black and death metal decor, i think i spotted a converge poster, too. loud metal music playing, a pentogram over the taps, some baphomet imagery, too. solid. unfortunately, the beers could be better. but, there were a couple good ones (as well as a few outright dogs).

Visited October 9, 2013.
The place is kind of narrow and includes no extra seating other than at the bar. The brewing equipment is in the back and there are a couple of barrels up front with the bar in between. The walls have some various pagan symbols and deities. Very metal, very friendly, my kind of place, if the beer was a little better. The beer styles range from smoked saison to IPAs and a few German styles. Over all they were a bit strange but there were one or two good ones. I could see myself coming back some time to listen to some doom metal while having a beer but as mentioned before the beer needs to improve a bit in quality.

Beer = awesome and metal destroys. Add these two things together and winning occurs. Trve is true indeed. No fake, pansy anything. The ambiance is like being in a graveyard in the forest on Soltice night with a castle ominously watching from a frost mountain. Music here is hardline underground doom or death, but at volumes that still allow for conversation. The staff is so congenial and approachable, probably to counter the "unwelcoming" atmosphere. The tap selection was eight solid beers. A few of which were mild and sessionable despite having intimidating names. This served well for the 90 degree weather outside. They had a solid IPA and Belgian strong ale for more sturdy options. I wish I could give the ambiance a 666 out of 5 here. I will be back. A lot.

This place has a great feel. I would love to suck down beer here all day. The metal music and atmosphere are fantastic. Iíve been here twice and have yet to hear Tool, hopefully that will change in the future. The beers are very good, not great, but the atmosphere makes up for it. Add a food truck and you have taproom nirvana. This is a great place to sit and drink.

Visited later evening on a Wednesday. Located in the Baker neighborhood (right next to the Bakers Commons building). Long narrow room, with a large group table up front, a bunch of seats at the long bar, and plenty of space to stand around. The brewery itself is just beyond the bar. Clean, modern design with very much the rock club feel they are going for. 11 beers on, quite a bit of variety in styles. Good service, seemed like a solid crowd of locals.

So I got over my initial aversion to this place and decided to give them a shot - I should preface this review by stating that this place is totally not my scene, so take this review with a grain of salt - a fair amount of space - this is a true "metal brewery" - black and grey everything - dim lighting - pentagram over the tap handles - metal music blasting - black metal art all over the place - itís like a suburban teenagerís basement bedroom in this place - not a fan - this is a shame, because the beer is fairly creative, albeit a bit hit or miss - some is sub par, but others are quite good - the stout in particular is excellent (think a non-imperial version of Yeti) - staff was friendly and attentive - itís kind of a shame that they have carved such a narrow niche for themselves in terms of ambiance, as this may keep certain people away (myself included, at least with any regularity), but I am sure all the twenty-somethings in the surrounding neighborhoods eat this shit up, so itís probably all good for them - worth a stop if you can tolerate the terrible atmosphere.

Iím a frequent flier here so Iím not sure I can objectively rate TRVE, but I do enjoy hanging out here. Theyíre doing a better job with beer availability and everyone who works here is nicer than they need to be. They have food trucks in front a couple nights a week. Douchebaggery is not tolerated here so generally things are relaxed and amiable. Good enough for me to drive across town and continually improving.

A quaint little brewery just South of downtown. The space has seating for several dozen patrons, and the tanks are just beyond the bar. While there are eight tap handles, only three beers were pouring. Of these, all three were good but the Smoked Tea Saison (Diotima) stole the show. The staff is very friendly and attentive.
