Stopped by in the afternoon to try some of their beers, as I found myself in the area. The new location is a fine place to meet some friends, though I can’t believe anyone would go there because of the ambiance. Could make the room feel warmer and more inviting. Right now it is a place to make and serve beer. No food. The service was great; nice bartender. The people around me were all friendly. However, the beer was what I wanted to try, and it was very spotty. The samplers I tried ranged from excellent to poor. Unfortunately, the best beer I tried is only available for about a week in December. Can’t see myself returning without that beer (or something else of similar caliber) on tap. Here is what I had: After Xmas/Xmas Ale (excellent; would love to have this again) Big Doedish (very good dipa) Train Hopper (good ipa) Under the Red Light (fair to decent) Edward’s Brown (poor; really a disappointment)

The new place is not real exciting. Lay out is kind of odd, I think they could have made much better use of the space. They have a few tables out in the area where you walk in, totally segregated from everything else. IMO this would have been a nice area for some couches, a more of an intimate seating area. They also have a very small cantilevered bar top in this area that’s about 6" wide, barley enough room to place a beer on. Cheap tables and chairs throughout. The table we sat at was not level and beers spilled. Spend the extra $10 and get the tables that can be leveled! In the bathroom they offer no paper towels to dry your hands, just one air dryer. I get that you want to be eco-friendly, but I shouldn’t have to wait in-line to dry my hands, there’s plenty of room to add a second dryer. Hardly any décor on the brown walls, it has almost no ambiance. Two smallish TV’s on the walls. If your only going to have two TV’s, maybe splurge for the 60"-er’s, it would only cost maybe $200 more each. I suspect the interior design and construction were done in house to cut cost, and the result is a cheap, unprofessional look. Service was rather slow, despite not being very busy. There were only a handful of people in there, and yet it took like 5-10 minutes each time to get a beer. I had four different beers, and two samples, all were decent, but nothing mind blowing. No food, so they’re doing the food truck parked out front thing. Word of advice to the food truck, you might want to take the 10 minutes to print up some menus to distribute inside, so patrons know what the heck you offer. I really wanted to like the new place, but came away underwhelmed, to say the least. I’m in no hurry to return, they’re just too many better options around town.

A tiny little tap room in a strip mall. Service was good and friendly. Selection was a bunch of their own taps which had styles all over the map. Beer was pretty good and well priced. Although not a must stop, I am glad we did.

Current location is small and in a strip mall, but they’re reportedly moving down the road a bit in a month or so. Nice place with a few fancy bottle-cap inlaid tables. Pretty good beer (the Doedish IIPA was a standout for sure). Very fast, knowledgeable service. No food, but as with many places they allow food from nearby establishments and will provide paper plates and napkins.

First brewery I’ve seen in a strip mall. Very small place. Cool vibe, though. Apparently they are moving soon? Nice beer list, the stouts at this place are great. The other beers are hit & miss, but they have plenty to choose from. No food. Really great service, friendly bartenders who are willing to talk with you endlessly about beer... or whatever else. Glad to see they’ll be expanding soon!

Well done pub in any otherwise nondescript strip mall. Small but well appointed with beautiful hand-made glass mugs on the walls. Place was packed at 3:30 on Saturday afternoon which was about 30 people. The waitress said that they are looking to move to a larger venue nearby. Beers were mostly very good, but they need to have more available than the 8 or so on tap.

Located in a strip mall. 11 beers on tap with some better than average - I was pleasantly surprised by the selection and overall quality/selection of styles. Very good service and will stop by again when in town. They sell flights of 5 of any beer on tap for $7.50 (including the high gravity beers!).

Small place and selection, but very tasty! Owners have a great attitude and mind for service. Will let you bring in your own food and hang. Can’t wait to see how they grow

Really like the beer here. A good selection of 8-10 beers on tap plus 2 meads. When those are out, they serve a local wine instead. I’ve loved the IPA and Double IPA here and a few of the others have been very good too. Can’t wait for more from this brewery. I spoke with the brewmaster too and he took the time to chat for a bit. My only complaint is that I wish they had food but the place is small so they can’t. I hope they get to expand eventually to serve food and start bottling.

Small brewery in a strip mall. 10 beers on tap with 2 meads. Beer was solid and brewer was nice and let me try a small batch beer before it was on tap. No food but beers are very well priced. Good ambiance considering the space.
