A small tasting room in the brewery. 14 beers on tap. The ones I had were all solid beers. One pet peavey I have is ordering a flight and then having to remember which is which as you carry the beers back to the table without a carrier. Pretty busy for Wed afternoon. I'd come back and probably will.

Un petit salon de dégustation comme il en existe des tonnes. La qualité est là et certaines volent même très haut. Si on aime les styles anglais, ça vaut un arrêt. Au pire, leurs bouteilles sont disponibles un peu partout.

A nice garage-type brewery in an industrial area. The tasting room is open to the brewing equipment. The staff are friendly and prompt. Good beers with a couple on cask. A nice place to drink some craft beers.

Nothing world class here, but I found the beers to be of good quality. The hardened beer geek will be disappointed by the lack of extreme beers, as most beers are made in the English tradition. But the ESB and Coffee RIS were very good. Worth a trip if you are in the area.

Small business/industrial park tasting room. About 10-12 taps offered. One disinterested employee. Beer quality was below par, but that was sort of expected from the beers I’d had from them previously. Pricing was pretty standard (couple of bucks for a taster, $5-$6 for a full pour). Wouldn’t bother to come back.

Industrial park tasting room right off I-5, very quick stop off. 12 or so house beers on tap, flights available of all beers. Quality was mixed with some pretty decent stuff followed up with some overly bitter, harsh offerings. Their IPA was by far the worst with the coffee RIS quite good. Staff was somewhat friendly. Wasn’t too crowded, but looks like they have a decent local following. No food truck.

Visited December 7, 2013.

I didn’t realize that these guys even had a tasting room, and apparently neither did anyone else since it wasn’t in the site until very recently. The brewery is in an industrial warehouse near 5 and 805 in the back of a complex. The building it’s in isn’t immediately visible form the street so pay attention. The brewery is kind of small for a commercial brewery (15 bbl?). There is a small bar and some tables and a few heat lamps. Over all kind of a boring place on a Saturday afternoon but the bartender was nice and you can try all the beers in sampler form. They had 8 beers on tap plus one on nitro and growlers available of everything. The Big Sting was probably the worst of the bunch being way too sweet and boozy (loaded with honey). The best was probably the Troopers Tipple. Despite having eight beers on tap I don’t think they rotate that many new beers through. Not sure if I’d stop back in again unless I was with someone that wanted to go.
