Large, postindustrial space and like decour; blaring music or dueling music decreases enjoyment; two female bartenders seemed more interested in chatting with each other than serving beer, service improved when a third server showed up; flights of 5 available for $11; no food but a food truck was parked outside; no wifi; 16 own beers available - mostly competent rather than awe inspiring

In the door a bit before 7 on a warm sunny Tuesday at the end of June, 2016. Another big warehouse space with a fairly big brewhouse in it. Probably seats or stands a couple hundred people easily, and I’m sure it hits those crowds. 16 beers on tap, flights of 5 for $9, which lets you hit everything in three flights, and one 10oz pour, if you happen to suffer from degenerative ticker syndrome (I do). Turned out it was trivia night, which may have accounted for some of the crowd, but could have also been the great environment and a pile of board games, which most every table near me seemed to be playing. Seems like there’s no food here, but there’s a food truck outside. This particular Tuesday happened to have a taco truck. Coincidence?
Beers here were pretty good. A couple from the 16 stood out, but most didn’t. Not a knock on the beers at all, as they were all good, just many, in spite of probably being above average, were not overly memorable. Lots of solid stuff though, and a really nice environment. Visited again at some point within the next few days. Certainly worth visiting.

A large indoor area and quite a large courtyard outside in which to sample their fine wares. All beers their own, most were good examples of the style (and there were many styles on offer). Busy Saturday afternoon and Sunday night and noisy too!

Avec Arts District Brewing, on est dans le titanesque déploiement. La qualité a commencé très bas pour se situer maintenant dans la moyenne. Pas mon premier choix avec les brasseries et bars voisins.

Dropped in on a Sunday evening -- busy but not swamped. Very cool vintage industrial building inside and out. This place is hipster haven. Beer was okay, service was indifferent. Still worth a visit for the ambiance alone.

A huge open warehouse, unlike many others in it’s enormous size. Lots of art deco, different areas to play and socialize, food options in the closed parking lot and entertainment. One of those spaces that just needs to be seen. Service was bar and a bit hectic, but it works. Lots of different beers, but none really of note. A great space that is worth checking out for that alone.

This place is enormous. There’s a large lot outside with food truck options. Two big buildings connect to create the tasting rooms. The first building is just massive with hundreds of seats. There were some interesting local vendors to one side of the room, keeping with the Arts District theme. The beers were good, on the verge of being really great. The pilsner is pretty cleanly fermented, but on the sweet side of the style. The berliner weisse was a little strange, but better than the gose we had earlier at a different place. The second tasting area was showing Germlins on a projection TV. Pretty cool idea. I definitely recommend going here just to see the space. It’s crazy. Beers aren’t too shabby either.

Comments: One of the coolest tasting rooms I’ve ever experienced- two stories of open space inside a retrofitted factory now brewery. Art deco and old timey decor with gold and iron, natural light. Tons of people here, capactity is probably 300 persons. Pets allowed. Food truck outside. Beer was better than expected with their core brands plus special offerings. Enough tables and lounge space to play board games or have a bachelor party. Really fun place, a nice surprise. Thanks DTF!
