This particular rating is focused on the brewpub side of the Brew Mentor operation. In addition they offer supplies for the homebrewer including grains, kits, cleaning supplies, and other things.
Brew Mentor offers six house beers which cover the basic sessionable styles. The exception is a bigger IPA which borders on 8% ABV. While they were nothing special these were good enough to drink while brewing your own beer or shopping for supplies. Growler fills are available as well for takeout.
Normally I would not recommend stopping here for a beer but as it is next door to Melt there’s enough reason to at least quickly browse. From here you can cross the street to shop at one of the better stores in the area to restock the cellar (Save On).
