Well, maybe there’s a reason this place hasn’t been rated in two and a half years. The locals knew something I didn’t. Holy crap. Open garage vibe, picnic tables. Lots of locals. Country rock. Bartender was nice. No food but free popcorn. 8 beers in a flight for $10. Not bad. But the quality of the beer was, well, it was making me think I found the worst brewery in Wisconsin. Of the 8 beers, a couple were barely drinkable. But some were severely off, disgusting and undrinkable. Tons of diacetyl problems. The combination of bad beer and the cigarette smoke had me feeling sick. Parking was tricky. The bright side is the friendly bartender, but I was happy to get out of there. Looking at beerbaaron’s review below, clearly they’ve now had time to improve. Avoid.

Its sort of like drinking beer in someone’s unfinished basement, except bigger. Mix n match tables and chairs bought from goodwill. Taster flight of 7 for $7 but only 1 of the beers were passable. A couple I didn’t want to finish. They’ve some work to do..

It was a bit tough to find it since it has a state street address but the entrance is on 62nd. I’ve driven by a few times and didn’t notice it. I suggest they put a large, bright noticeable sign on their state street window to let people know they are here. The inside seems to be an old garage or warehouse with big open ceilings, wooden tables and and handful of games like pinball and bag toss. Stacks of board games, a few TVs and a reasonably priced sampler are enough to get me in the door. Six on tap on my visit and decent service. Light snacks and free popcorn were the only food options. I’ll be back to check them out as they grow.
