Visited here a while ago, and really enjoyed myself.
The room is almost like a big beer hall or a beer hall mixed with a small concert venue, and I really dig the whole atmosphere and feeling of space. Really long cool bar as well and a lot of easy to read tap lists.
The beers are served amazingly at the right temp with good glassware, and the prices are very reasonable! Some of the servers seemed sort of disinterested but then some of them went way out of their way to help my wife and I with getting the merchandise and more that we needed.
The taps seem like they keep some rare stuff on there: They had a test run of Devil Dancer, Kaiser Curmugeon, their new Session IPA, and a couple other things that have not been distributed so that was really cool and makes it really worth it to stop in and check out what they have.
For food, I only really had the cheese dip with the bread and sesame sticks so I can't comment too much on that, but overall it's not really a restaurant first, it's a bar first, though they looked like they had a huge amount of cool looking sandwiches I would try if I came back.
Overall a great experience at one of my all time favorite breweries.
