Made it here just in the nick of time. Actually we walked in 2 minutes after closing but since there were still people there playing corn hole they let us order a couple flights. This is an impressive facility. Up front is a tasting bar with a wall that obscures the view of the 100 bbl fermenters in the back. The one wall is covered with a bunch of barrels. The bartender was nice and gave us a flight and a couple free tasters despite being closed already. They also have some bottles for sale here. At the time they had sour raspberry beer for sale.
There were two screens worth of taps rotating on the screen. A lot of what they had were variants of the regular beers. There was a mango variant on the IPA, their saison with pink peppercorns, and several different Berliners. Most of it was pretty good. Maybe not something I’d buy cases of but most of it I’d be OK with having a pint of. Speaking of, the pints are $5 each and the tasters are 2oz each. Sounds about right.
I’d come back here if in the area but these days I don’t have much interest in revisiting any of the other breweries in the immediate area (Midnight Jack, Gold Coast Meadery, and Oceanside Ale Works). Realistically I’ll be back to the new restaurant or the one on 30th before I come back here.
