Stopped here for a late lunch/early dinner and had an appetizer and a brew before heading through the black hills to Hot Springs. Nice place. I liked the decor and representing all the fire departments on the walls. I liked that the brewing equipment was visible without being overbearing as well.

We sat at the bar and were waited on promptly. The bartender had a good understanding of the beers on tap, 4 though it looked like that had room for more, and realized quickly that we knew enough about beer that she could talk about the beer and not just describe the styles.

The beer was poured well and served at a good temperature. It was served on coasters that were also postcards. That was fun. We had spinach and artichoke dip which was amazing. I highly recommend this place to anyone who is passing through. (816 characters)

Eight beers on tap. I tried their Hefeweizen wheat beer with my burger and thought they went well together Service was excellent and the food was tasty and came out quick. Recommend it if you are in the area. (211 characters)

Note: This review is based on full experience. Inside old firehouse with antiques and such on a Saturday night to a flight of beers and ribs. Food was great, beers were good to very good... I really like the Barely Blonde best. A band was playing on the patio and although it seemed to be the hangout in town there was plenty of room. The atmosphere more than the beer will bring me back again. (399 characters)

This was stop #39 for my wife and I on a 21-day pub-crawl from Michigan to N. CA and OR. We stopped in town for an overnight on our trip home, and pre-planning caused us to know that there was a brewery in town. This place is located in the downtown are in a former fire station (hence the brewery’s name), and the interior was decorated in old fire-fighting antiques, etc.

It was a Friday night and the pub was busy, but we were seated right away. We ordered a sampler flight of all 9 of the beers that were available to go along with our dinner. Each of the beers was brewed to style or slightly better, and two Amber Ales that were on tap were the most notable. None of the beers fell into the exceptional category, but overall, the beers were very good.

Our food was also very good, so this place has the real deal with good beer and food, and those are two very good reasons to stop here. (898 characters)
