Big, open restaurant and bar, with a pretty cool aesthetic. The bartender was friendly enough, but the servers were slow. Pretty good spread of beer styles, including two beer engines, which is exciting. The focus is generally on lighter, approachable beers. The prices are pretty high for a brewpub, too. Overall, this is a pretty good place to bring people who aren’t into beer, but hardly a beer geek destination.
Half sit down restaurant & half bar with small tables. Beer is brewed on site, half the taps are the Rock Bottom standards & half the taps the brewer has a lot the ability to be creative, so some beers will be different from location to location. The place stays busy but the staff is always friendly, some are very knowledgeable of beer & others are new. While the taps are only RB brews, they do keep at least 8 taps up along with occasional cask beers & they have bombers as well. Some low scores noted because staff wasn’t very beer knowledgeable, I say go back & talk to the GM or the Brewer & you will have a whole new appreciation for how special this location is.
Just O.K. I ordered an IPA and they brought a Stout. What?! You would think that a place with brewery in the name would know their beers.

Nice for a chain restaurant. Good variety of beers on tap. Staff was friendly and attentive, but could use more training on the beers that they serve. Good food. Decent prices. Didn’t enjoy it as much as Bristol, Trinity, or Phantom Canyon but I definitely will return to try some more of their beers.
The beer select is very nice. They brew and can sell you other beers, too.
The food selection is nice and the happy hour prices are great in the bar area.
The beer club is a great thing to join.
The brewers love to talk beer when they have time.
This RB was very helpful with the female bartender answering questions and if she didn’t know she qould go ask the brewer. Had nachos which were plentiful but pricey. The beers were just as good if not better than other RB. Had the regular sampler with all the extras thrown in.
This place reminded me of the
Detroit Beer Company brewpubs (Royal Oak, And Rochester) Food very good Beer made for the people that want to drink something other than bmc. The beer was kind of middle of the road for me. I did the ten sampler. The wife and I were in the springs for the weekend for my daughter in loves fathers funeral
