Third stop on Saturday of RBSG16. Walked here from Grist House, which is maybe 10 blocks away. Small low key somewhat modern industrial space. Seats 50-60 in a small space due to a nice layout and seating along the walls in addition to the bar and roughly 10 tables. Eight beers on when we came, flights of three, or 10oz pours for $5-6. Most, if not everything on tap, is sour or funky. They really get into the wild yeast and I’m assuming the bulk of their beers see time in the koelschip. Staff here was super friendly and knowledgeable. There’s some board games tucked away on the side somewhere and a few people decided to play games as well. Some of the better beers out of the eight breweries we hit over two days, and that’s saying something since there wasn’t much bad beer. Certainly worth a visit.
Dark and wrist-slittingly depressive interior, but crunchy stone gravel outside, was pleasant to sit at picnic tables under the galvanized steel roofing sheets and listen to the noise of a sudden downpour. It’s a pan-Continental feel and brings back the warms and fuzzies in me. Beers seem quite good but I’d like a little more experience before judging firmly. Also expensive and only three samples in a flight, but the cause is worthy and there’s some social potential here. I’d say a must-stop for out-of-towners. [2017.05.21: 80]
Visited with the RBSG group. The place is pretty small inside, but they had seating for probably 40 without getting too crowded. They also had a large patio area with umbrella tables. Predominantly farmhouse and Belgian styles here. They even have a koelschip, so they have a lot of funky, sour beers. 12 or so beers on tap and 10 or more in bottles. Some overlap between tap and bottles. Good prices on everything. Very friendly and knowledgeable servers. I think one was the brewer. Don’t remember for sure. Really fun place. I would come here a lot if I lived in the area.
Cozy but comfortable and a nice little outdoor area as well. Very nice and knowledgeable staff who will walk you through all the beers. Beer list includes bottles and vintages which seemed to have good stock. Samplers are available but a tad pricey. I am not a huge fan of the beers as they have very Belgian yeast profiles, but if you are into that thing they are pretty good.
Yet another good re-use of a fairly tight space. Coolship is no longer on site, but used to be in the main bar. Nice natural wood L-shaped bar and wooden tables. Few picnic tables outside with a gravel beach. Beers are all funky and Bretty, all were solid with a couple of stand-outs. Eight beers on when we visited, available in flights of three. Good service. Nice stop.
Perfect location right off the exit with easy return. Medium sized parking lot. Nice Biergarten with tables and chairs and nice shady areas to sit and relax. Inside is a little small but a/c works. Only 5 ales on tap and only a few items in bottles or by the case if you already know what you want. We sampled all of the ales they had at the time and they were pretty good. Maybe not the best but unique enough to be satisfying. Prices are not bad either, fairly reasonable. No food but they had a Fish Taco truck and a cupcake truck show up. They rotate different trucks when available. They had water available and you can bring your own food if you wish. Service was good, very attentive and knowledgeable. I wish they had more items available from their list. Guess I’ll just have to go back again sometime to see what’s new. Overall an enjoyable experience and a relaxing afternoon.

Kind of an odd atmosphere here. Reminds me of an old doctors office waiting room. It was cozy though. The beer ranges from mediocre to really nice. Not my favorite place to hang out but worth a stop for their sours.
