Service can be hit or miss but hands down the best craft beer around.

Very small tasting room, but there is more room in the back around the brewing equipment after ordering. Decent value in that you can order tasters. Usually 8-10 beers on tap, and they are always pumping out new beers to try. A fixture on the IE tick trail.

Interesting little place in an empty industrial park with ample, free parking. Small front room has a good number of taps, though only six or so beers pouring and three "HLs" or hard lemonades :/ on tap. A few kegs kicked while we were there, but they didnít replace them with anything else -__- so....ok. "Maybe weíll hook up some new beers next week." !!?? Service was slow I guess and I had to repeat my order many times, whatever. They were busy with about 15 people in there. You can pay with card thank god. They also sell potato chips (?). We were allowed to mingle around the back room attached to the bar and sit around near the chillbox. There were a bunch of sharp knives and pieces of equipment someone could mess around with. So, a very trusting, informal atmosphere with no room to accomodate more than a handful of people. The brewery is reggae themed, though I didnít see anything about the brewery or beer to hint at that except for the WiFi password. Beer quality was okay. The IPA was not good. The hard lemonades were probably great, but I was on a beer ticking run with the usual suspects. Prices were a bit much for the small, plastic samplers. 4 samplers was $16 or something. Weird.

Visited numerous times since (before) they opened. In the past year theyíve stayed busy mostly with locals but are getting ready to expand from the 2 bbl system to something slightly bigger and to a bigger tasting room so they may get some more attention soon.
The actual tasting room is tiny, holds maybe 10-12 people (though there are usually 20-25 in there) but they open the door to the brewery so most people hang out there. The employees are all nice and there is always a large selection of beers. They do hops well and its obvious that its their favorite style when 5 out of 15 taps are hoppy beers. Some of the other styles need work but heís learning quickly and experimenting a lot. If youíre worried about finding something good just order the Session IPA, and if its available the Summer IPA. Heís starting to get into sours so look out for that.
No food served and no food trucks present, so eat before you go if you plan on staying a while.

Rather small little brewery in an industrial park in Chino. The people who run the brewery are quite nice. Pricing is good, beers can be really hit or miss, though. They do crank out tons of new beers all the time, though. Canít fault them for a lack of creativity, either. Lots of unique beers.
