Great place to knock back some pints. Live music (bluegrass) played loud enough to know its there but not so loud that you canít hear. Friendly staff and locals, high ceilings, and a great bar. All cocktails are made with fresh-squeezed citrus which almost looked good enough to put my beer down. Eclectic decor and some decent food make this an awesome place to grab a pint (or two, or eight). Entertaining to watch the female owner totally take the piss out of a drunk who thought he could talk smack to her.
Went here when it was both busy and when it was fairly empty. because we were travelling with my son, we had to sit in the back (dining) room instead of the bar. Service varied depending on who you got and the brewer must not have been in a talkative mood. The bar area looked great as a place to relax...

This pub is what all small town breweries should be like. Itís housed in an amazing old city building, has very high ceiling, large circular bar tables, and the bar itself is a work of art: very colorful and well crafted. The servers were awesome to talk to, they knew their beer and had some good opinions, and can spot a beer drinker fairly well. I scribbled some RateBeer graffiti on the bathroom chalkboard.
Went to this place not long after it opened. That meant they had 4 beers on tap, no problem though they were all great, if you like hops. Hoppy beers seem to be the word here, thats no worries for me, i like hops. The authentic bar is just amazing. The same brass rail from the 1800ís. Very knowledgable bar staff, yes they serve hard liquor as well. The food is decent. Quite possibly the most unique brewery Iíve been to, considering its in a rather old building. A must see if near the area.
Spacious, red-walled bar area with actual wooden bar tables (a rarity), weathered brick dining area, little nooks with chintzy couches and comfy upholstered chairs. Lava lamp collection. Alternative music was college station-ish, but better. Eclectic, arty, fun, and architecturally cool. Thereís more I didnít see; billiards upstairs? Quirky local art is tasteful and kept to a minimum. I include in that category the gent sipping PBR from the can. Despite being only a quarter full, the spirited clientele (20- to 50-somethings) kept up a pleasant din. There were several that I would swear were homeless, but turned out to be ungroomed slobs with cellphones and goodwill wardrobes. Service and food were good. Very good beers.

Typical warm, woody NW brewpub. On the waterfront in a historic building. The brewery is quite small, but the place was packed when I was there. Live music and an energetic crowd. The beer is pretty good, the service was fine enough given the busyness. Iíll try to get back on a quieter day, though.
