Cool place here. Really hidden, good name. Small, two levels with the bar on the bottom level and a foosball table, dartboard, and big screen on the second level. 5 beers offered, 3 wines, and a mead. Selection when I came included an IPA, Pils, ESB, Red, and a Stout. The Stout was the best with the Red being number 2 for me. The others were unique but still decent. The mead was quite dry but I liked sipping on it. The brewer/owner/bartender was a really cool guy and quite good at what he does. I'm looking forward to more of their offerings. Definitely worth checking out. Also, its right next to a hot tub place. A few beers then a tub, sounds like a relaxing night to me ;-)

Here's my take on the beers they offer, no notes were taken so no reviews yet
ESB-too blueberry tasting for me, gets annoying
Red-sweet but very good, I liked it a lot
Stout-Awesome roasty and dry, great beer
Porter-Thinner, chocolatey but not that great
Weizen-yeasty and funky fruity flavor
IPA-good, odd color but nice fruityness as well, gets old after a pint
Pilsner-really good hop strike, i liked their pils a lot (1,113 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)
