A little tricky to find unless you've been there back when it was Hubba Tubba. It's off Plainfield back next to the Fox 17 Station.

Inside atmosphere was nice. Different beer related decor around the bar area. Has a pretty laid back feel & some nice music too. Also, looks like there is an upstairs seating area and an outdoor patio area. I sat at the bar, so didn't get to experience either of these. Maybe next time.

They had maybe 7 or 8 beers to choose from. Not a huge selection, but decent. The couple of beers I tried were very nice beers. Especially their ESB. I would definitely recommend that one.

Overall it was a nice experience. Good beers at decent prices with a laid back atmosphere. The kind of place you'd want to stop in at after a long day at work.

Went to Hideout Brewing Company a few weeks ago. It really is a little hole in the wall, but it's a pretty good atmosphere, wasn't crazy busy, and had video games & darts upstairs. They have free bags of chips & pretzels around the bar. Bartender was a little rude, but I think that's just the vibe they're going for. I'll definitely go again at some point.

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

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.

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.

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!

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