Stopped by here on recent trip to SD...one necessary stop. It was on my friends' list of things to do in the area that they had been putting off. Atmosphere was excellent w/the gardens, pond, waterfall, trees, etc. The frogs made me feel like I was back home in the country, even though we were in the middle of a light industrial zone. We stood by the bar outside and waited for a table, and walked around the grounds and checked out the store. The quality of brews and the food were excellent. I had duck tacos, and all 4 of us were very pleased w/the fare. Tried CaliBelgique for the first time, and several others with which I was already familiar. The service was the only part that was lacking...servers were very polite, but we had to wait well past our reservation time, and only when a member of our party went to inquire about a table with a different hostess/point of contact did we actually finally get a spot. After we sat no one stopped by for about 15 minutes, and we had to go ask if anyone was planning on stopping by. The bartender was too rushed to answer any questions, although the bar was not that busy at the moment. All in all, the service did little to mar an excellent evening w/great friends, food and brews. One of the highlights of my trip. Highly recommended.

Love this place. Excellent variety of brews in a beautiful building. The courtyard is beautiful to mingle in while enjoying your brew! Definitely going back soon.

Nothin' wrong here. The whole package and then some. More excellent beer on tap than you could enjoy/explore in a week of daily visits. And the featured, special brews by various brewers they employ is a great treat. Believe the hype...they are that good. Oh, and you are not worthy...

This is the big-boy of breweries. They do most everything right - ample parking, although the walk can be a little longer. They do run a lot of tours through here so everything is on a grander scale. Nice bar area, large indoor/outdoor dining area with removable walls depending on the weather/season. Stones overall presence is enormous in the craft world, and this presence is notable in the Headquarters facility. A nice gift shop and bottle purchase/growler fill area, which is very crowded when the weekends come by and the tours run through. facility staff are generally very attentive, fluctuating of course depending on how busy they are. Try and find a seat at the bar if two or less people since you can eat/order food but your likely to get your brews quicker on an busy day than say if you had regular table service. The menu is eclectic, although a little pricey. Nice tap and bottle list. They do have a very liberal growler fill policy. Hope this helps. Cheers.
