I stopped here with my Dad to try their sampler. Upon walking in I noticed the sign for Ballistic IPA which got my mouth drooling. It wasn't being bottled yet, so I picked up a pint of it on top of the sampler that we grabbed.

The bartender didn't seem to be too cheerful, or he was just having a bad day, not sure. That's fine, I wasn't there to talk with him anyways. We sat down with our samples and started the tasting. Ambergeddon, Hopalicious, both top notch brews.

I didn't have any of their food, although I hear that their food is pretty tasty. I'd like to visit the brewery again sometime when I am on the East side. (628 characters)

Pretty decent brewery vibe with nice outdoor seating.

Service was ho-hum to start. We sat at dining tables, not the bar, and it took forever to get a first drink and eventually place our order. After that, service was decent.

Selection of both food and beer are ok, with about 8 taps at the time of various styles.

Price was average brewery prices. (357 characters)

Visited on 2/28/15 as part of the Hop Head Beer Tour. Building was huge, atmosphere felt a tad "corporate". Will definitely stop here again but wouldn't make it the main focus of my trip. (187 characters)

Nice tour, place is pretty big but we still got to see and hear about all of it. They have all their bottled beers, as well as a couple tap-only, so pretty solid selection. Food was great, came out in timely fashion. If I have a complaint, it is a bit dark in the back, but that's a small personal issue (I don't have the best eyesight to begin with). (354 characters)

They built a brand new location, full of style, atmosphere and great beer.....unfortunately the handful of times I have been there the service has been below average and the food barely passes low end bar food. Again, very cool building, great drinking atmosphere and great beer... but eat somewhere else. (305 characters)
