I really enjoyed this place back when Omar still gave tours. It is impressive how far they have come and I will always drink abrasive ale and darkness when given the opportunity. In the earlier years, you could tell their true passion and hard work was evident in everything they did (I would have given the place a rating of 5/5). Darkness, Surly 2 and abrasive remain some of my top beers of all time. Unfortunately, I will say that it isn't quite the same anymore (though I still enjoy this place and thus the 4.2 rating), last tour I was on, I felt I knew more than the guide (maybe it was his first go at it?). The attitude seems to have shifted over the years from hard working, innovative passion to - how do we get this fancy new brewery going so we can get ridiculously large and make a lot of money (not a bad thing, just not as cool as the old attitude of we are pioneers and we do things differently and we are the little engine that could). They have incredible demand for their beer and like any company in growth mode, it is tough to keep the same focus. I still think highly of them, I like their Surly gives a damn campaign and give them a lot of credit for getting to where they are.
