I made the trek down to Foothills Brewing Company with a few friends this weekend for the 2011 Sexual Chocolate release. People were allowed to begin entering the brewery at approximately 8:00am, but the line of several hundred people took an inordinate amount of time to move inside, as there was but one individual at the door checking IDs and applying wristbands. I find this lack of foresight highly inefficient and particularly annoying, as I had been waiting outside for several hours in freezing weather.
The atmosphere inside is quite nice, with high ceilings, two levels, ample bar and table seating, and large windows. The vibe was good, and the staff was quite friendly, though they must have been exhausted.
The kitchen was pretty inconsistent. It took a few of my table mates nearly an hour to receive their lunch, despite ordering after peak hours. I, in turn, received my lunch in less than ten minutes of ordering. The kitchen staff burned a simple appetizer the night before, but the dish was promptly replaced.
It was a nice treat to enjoy some vintage drafts of Sexual Chocolate the night before the release. Also, it is extremely cool of Foothills to permit customers to bring in their own beers to this event, allowing for a huge tasting the night before and day of the event.
Overall, this is a quality establishment brewing quality beer. Recommended.
