Visited in December 2016. My last stop before heading back to the airport...unfortunately.

It's a fairly large tasting room in Little Italy. A close walk from the more notable places like Ballast Point and Bottlecraft. A lot of TVs going with the NFL on. Plenty of seating. Kind of feels like a Chipotle more than a brewery.

I didn't realize this when I entered, but I guess all of their beers are "gluten reduced". Not really sure what the point of that is. They had a decent number of beers, but I just opted for a single flight. I guess that was a good decision because I didn't care for any of them, and a few were just bad.

Can't really recommend this place at all. Scroll past.

Visited on a Monday afternoon in late January 2017. Located not far from Ballast Point in Little Italy. The place was empty during my visit. I only had one flight, the beers were decent. Nice and friendly service.

I liked this place, very laid back and spacious, the music not too loud to allow conversation, keen knowledgeable staff and half pints available. Some beers good but the porter was a bit thin especially as over 7% abv.

Big tasting room in Little Italy, with 12-13 draft options. Pizza and apps for food options. Prices are about on par with other breweries in the area -- $1.50 for a 4 ounce sampler, $3 for a half pint, and $6 for a full pint. Beers are generally good. Service was on the week side -- went on a Saturday night and there was a single bartender and one bar-back, which caused a bit of a line-up of talks trying to get beers. The bartender was working her ass off, so it wasn’t an issue of inattentiveness, but it’s a busy enough place that it needs 2 bartenders at peak times. Anyway, worth stopping in, and walkable from Ballast Point Little Italy.
