En symbiose avec le Barrelworks ce qui est en soi un grand avantage. C’est une formule resto-bar grand espace avec une saveur industrielle. La liste consiste à quelques fûts spéciaux en rotation autours du noyau de FW. La bouffe était correcte sans plus mais la bière compense amplement.

Comments: Enormous facility that holds FW Barrelworks, a separate place entity, plus two large casual dining rooms, a smaller central bar, and a tiny to-go store for merchandise and beer. Full menu with around 40 options ranging from mac n cheese and buffalo wings to large entrees like flatbreads. Our server knew the beers on tap perfectly and was very helpful...obviously very well trained on the beers and the menu. Food prices seemed a tad high for being in the middle of nowhere, but obviously this place is super popular for the residents in Solvang I’m guessing, so prices were a tad higher than expected. Beers were normal to cheap though.

Meget sterilt i dens udformning med masser af polerede metalflader. Når Barrelworks ikke er åben er udvalget ikke kæmpe stort. Tasterne er fine nok men der mangler lidt i forhold til hvor søde og rare bryggerne var på CBC.

Ambiance was pretty upscale, but very nice. Wait staff was really not happy to be there it seemed and were not knowledgeable about the beer. Selection was great, got to try Parabola on tap! Value was so-so. Overall, could have been a great experience with a different wait staff.

Our last stop on our drive to SD. I was mainly stopping to check out the barrel works but we decided to stay for dinner so I got to check out both. Atmosphere in the taproom was good. It was packed with people but it still had a good vide. Quality across the board was quite good. Lots of great touches helped to make it feel welcoming but don’t detract from the overall atmosphere. Service was solid, I never had to wait for a beer. Selection was solid. They had all of the staples on as expected. Food was pretty good. I got a burger and it was cooked how as I asked and tasted good. Prices on the beers were fine, food was definitely overpriced on nearly all of the dishes. Overall a really nice showpiece for a great brewery. Glad we could stop and check it out.

Pretty nice place. BBQ chicken pizza was very good (beware, crisply thin crust!). Tasters $1.50, half pine and imperial pint pours available. 12 beers in tap including several that are taproom only. Decent service.

A very nice restaurant with the ability to be high end or casual. Food is high end, but I found it flavorless and lacking. Beer is all their own, with a library of old beers you can drink onsite for a premium. In all it wasn’t that great for me, I preferred their brewery store across the street.
