The atmosphere wasn't flashy, but it worked. There's a nice bar area on the main floor, seating upstairs and an outdoor area that overlooks something of an overgrown pool. It sounds funny, but somehow they pull it off (there used to be a hot-tub place next door). I'd call it cozy. Somehow the way it's off the beaten path makes for a better atmosphere in this instance.

The beer was quite good. I had an ESB that was spot on and a very drinkable IPA that was served on a Nitro tap.

Service was great. The bartender really knew her beers, gave honest opinions, and was around for refills as often as possible. It started to get busy by the time we left, so she wasn't around as often as I may have liked, but it looked as if she was the only one working and she did a fine job.

Selection was quite good for a brewpub. There was a wide range of styles including seasonal selections.

Food wasn't really available on site. I more than appreciated the free popcorn and you're allowed to bring in outside food or order delivery from other restaurants. That's a pretty nice policy in my book.

Value was good. Full pints were under $4.00 during happy hour. I was able to enjoy a few while still coming out under 10 bucks for the evening. (1,235 characters)

Very unique place. Old video games upstairs and some off the wall beers. Quality isn't up there with founders but not many breweries are. You will definitely wonder if you are heading to the right place. Worth checking out and bombers to go are very reasonably priced. $5-$7 for everything (289 characters)

Awesome place that is a literal hideout. Dive bar with a huge selection of average to below average beer. Really like the low key vibe. (135 characters)

My favorite brewery to visit, new beer every Friday, great atmosphere. Tons of old video game systems to play upstairs for free. Mainstay beers are great, new recipes are always interesting. (190 characters)

This is a cool local watering hole in the wall kind of a brewery. It is off the beaten path and is located in an old hot tub/jacuzzi store so there is an odd lingering smell of chlorine. The place has a burglar/pro-hibition theme. I did not have any food when I was there. They had a surprisingly large taplist on with well over 20 beers on tap when I was there. They had a large variety of styles and a lot of experimental beers on tap. I had a flight and everything I had was mostly good and some were excellent. I only had one beer that was run of the road. I would recommend this brewery to anyone that is looking for a place that has a variety of beers on tap whether they be new to craft beer or a connoisseur you will find something you like on tap here. I look forward to going back to Hideout again one day! (817 characters)

Awesome beer. You'll find beers here that you won't find anywhere else. Unique in every regard. However, just crappy bar food. (131 characters)
