First off, the building to this place has a nice presence as it would seem it is two businesses. Beers I had on a flight were for the most part standard fare, although they had a smoked beer I thought was exceptional. I talked with a host about how hard it is for people in rural regions to come around to craft, but it appears it is happening in Hays. I will probably be back here again, the food was enjoyable and for a beer geek in the area there isn't too many alternatives. Another place that I believe will be a beer lovers destination in time when they can finally take more risks with their styles.

Located in the middle of nowhere, KS. First impression is a modern looking, casual, yet clean looking restaurant and brewery. Great looking bar, classy all around place. Nice lighting and a solid mix of alternative music on the speakers.

Quality of the beer is somewhere between average and pretty good. I know they have an impressive collection of awards from events like GABF, but don't expect to be blown away with flavor. With all the beers today with huge ABV, barrel aging, and 100+ IBUs, this brewery takes a different/simple approach with the "less is more" process. It makes for great lighter body, sessionable beers, but sometimes more actually is more.

Price was terrific. $1 for four ounce taster pours of every beer they offered. Growlers for about $12. Food on the menu was very affordable as well. The pretzel we tried was okay, but many other things looked great...especially the desserts.

I would certainly check this place out if you are in the area.

Went here both on the way to Topeka and on the way home. Both times for a weekday lunch so it wasn't overcrowded. Nice tall ceilings, big open spaces. Service was really good. The first day the young gentleman that served my wife and I was spot on. Knew his stuff impeccably. His suggestions for food were so good that my wife and I split our plates. The beer was very good. Solid in their types.

Liked it so much that we took friends there on the way back through. Great place!
