Modern industrial building - interior is spacious. Granite bar. Lots of other seating. Service at the bar was excellent - although there was a bit of consumer presence. Keg questions, other questions. Flights are available, and 6 oz samples are also available. Soup of the day was excellent. Seems a good place to eat. Or to acquire some ticks off and on.
Stopped in mainly because it was two blocks from Fieldwork and we had 45 minutes to kill. Large place with a standard chain pub vibe. Service was pretty solid, and they had a lot of their own beers on tap (way more than 7). Beers are what you expect, but you could do a lot worse in the area. Pretty busy on a Saturday afternoon. Showing the A’s, which made my friend happy.
Been here a few times over the years… The building is very nice and spacious. They have a loft that they rent out for meetings and events (some of which I’ve attended). The quality of beers is what you would expect. Some pretty good, others just ok, none really all that great. I’ve never tried the food. The service was nice and attentive. I appreciate that. Overall, this is a step above one of those chain restaurant kind of experiences. I would have no problem going back if there wasn’t so many other more interesting options in the area.
Selection of Pyramid brews, a bar, a few screen for sports (always appreciated), and pretty good food. Happy hour discounts the prices significantly. Service was solid and (even) knowledgeable.

This place is basically a large family sports-bar, with a brewery attached. The beer is pretty good, and they keep adding seasonals and new recipes quite often. The food is well made, tasty, and packed with fat, salt, cheese & other [unhealthy] things that go well with beer. The place is pretty spacious, with big windows towards the brewery (with all the tanks and tuns), and has a small boutique selling Pyramid- merch as well as six packs of beer. You can also get growlers (and even kegs) to go. Excellent place, used to be my regular stop after work on Friday evenings!
Stopped in here for a sampler on 8/8/10. Cool looking place with a sports bar kind of atmosphere and brewing equipment in the back. I didn’t realize they brewed out of this location. Bartender was very good and with lots of beer knowledge and personality. Beers were pretty good, particular the lesser known offerings like Discord and Lip Stinger. Didn’t try the food. I’ve always considered their beers very safe and, therefore, mediocre so I was glad I got to try some more daring offerings from them. Worth the stop.
Surprised I haven’t reviewed this as its the closest brewpub to my house. They spent a fair amount of money remodeling. Unfortunately, the thing they can’t get rid of is that its a HUGE room with cavernous ceilings. As a result normal sounds are loud and when you get people in for a game it can get downright deafening. Service can very depending on the worker and how busy the shift is. Today, I sat there for what I would consider a longer than necessary amount of time before asked if I wanted a beer. They did upsell me to their Snow Cap sampler, which was smart. Selection? If it ain’t Pyramid (with a couple MacTarnahan thrown in) then you’re not likely to get it here. Menu is widely varied. I had their crispy calamari strips. Breading was nicely crispy and the calamari was nicely cooked. Firm enough to be cooked, but pliable enough so it wasn’t overcooked. Served with an aoli that was just spicy enough. Prices are a little high IMHO. Overall, if you’re looking for a place in the area that’s casual this would be a good choice.
