Not a pleasant aroma in the air when you walk in but you get used to it (maybe it was just a temporary thing). Lots of wood colors around the room. Decent service and a good crowd within 20 minutes of the doors opening on a Saturday. Room at the bar or dining tables and even a meeting space in the back. Flights were available and at a reasonable price.
Stop #9. Really cool looking place. Nice atmosphere with a nice bar and a great tap selection. Lots of good stuff available. Food menu looked really good but we didn’t partake. Had a beer and then the bartender was kind enough to give us tour of the brew works. Place is much bigger than it looks from the outside. Swing by and definitely see if you can get a tour.
Huge place right on main drag (I assume), next to an antique store. Saturday 1 PM, came to help a friend brew his own beer on premises. Hour wait to sit (apparently everyone went to Michigan this weekend). We went to the bar and got two seats next to the mini brew kettles in a matter of minutes. Really huge. All sorts of different rooms that can be rented out I guess. Shuffleboard in the hallway by the restrooms. Woodsy feel in the bar area. Maybe 12 of their own on tap. Flights are offered which is always a good idea at a place like this. Met one of the brewers--real personable guy. Five girls tending bar. Not one of them smiled in the two hours we were there which was off-putting (and I hear they never do). Beers were decent and overall the place had a nice atmosphere, but the way we were treated was very disappointing
This spot is a little bit out of the way, but it’s really worth the trip. One of the friendliest bartenders I’ve ever met, named Tiffany, was knowledgeable about the product. Lots of their beers on tap to choose from. All of the food we had was awesome. They make all their bread in house with their spent grain. I recommend the red pepper and Gorgonzola soup..
This is a great place. Well worth the visit. I sampled about 15 beers, and most were good to very good. Very open friendly place - I had four kids with me and it didn’t feel "bar-ish." Staff wasn’t too knowledgable, but I knew what I wanted and so it wasn’t a problem. Food was good to very good. Well worth a visit.
Nice large brewpub just off 31 in Douglas. Nice selection of solid beers. Our food was good but pretty standard pub food. Definitely worth a stop if in the area.

Visited for the first time, I haven’t had much of their beer and wasn’t sure what to expect. The bar was pretty nice with some brewing on premises going on as we ate. The menu was good and the food was tasty. Tried 10 of 14 beers on tap and really came away pretty impressed. They had a good ipa and hopped blond ale (hop on blond), they did a really nice job on the brown ale, porter, Irish red, and my own favorite the dry stout. They had an ESB that was easily drinkable if a little over hopped for the style. I will happily return.
