From the original Stone Brewery, this place is now Lost Abbey/Port. Its efficient, its industrial storage/warehouse type of spacing, so you probably park off street. The beers are good, real good, the framboise de amarosa picture is worth .25 points in vibe alone.

Anyways, a few good hoppy selections, a few good stouts, a few good wild beers, there's plenty selection wise when you do these with the Lost Abbey selections, and the Port ones are the value priced, so there's that.

'Selection' includes the fact that they share their brewery with the Lost Abbey. No place to sit, which to me is becoming more and more of a turn off. What really are you saying to me "buy something and get the fuck out" "you really need to lose weight" "we stand behind the bar so you can stand too, haha" etc. Any which way you say it I disapprove.

*Based on notes from previous visit 2/2014*
As others have mentioned, it’s a brewery in an industrial park. I went on a cool, crisp February evening and I felt that this place was a grill short of a backyard party. Not much seating available, but a very chill atmosphere, friendly service that does a good job of keeping up with the crowds. There's a pretty good selection of taps between Port Brewing and Lost Abbey beers. It’s a shame that they keep fairly early hours, but $1 samples is pretty awesome.
