I popped in for a brewery tour on the way to visit my grandfather. I got there on Sunday at noon, right when they opened. I wasn't the only one arriving for the opening. The first thing I noticed was that they had five bartenders. That is a sign that they do well on Sundays. The bar was small with various shards of tile grouted into it. I ordered a R.O.D. and was off on my tour.

I liked the fact that I was the only one in the tour since they just opened. Tours do not go on a schedule that I could tell. It was ask and go when the tour guide was available. The tour was typical. The process is always the same only on larger and smaller scales. I did get to see some beers aging in barrels along the way. The best part of the tour was of course the tasting. The tour was $7 and worth every penny to get to sample barrel aged Plead the 5th. What a great beer! The others were good, but the ba Pt5th was awesome.

Once I returned from the VIP lounge I noticed that there were a couple thousand beer mugs hanging from everywhere. The mug club must be popular. The bar itself was nothing fancy. It kind of looked like a dive bar or biker bar as several iron horses had come since I left on my tour. A lot more down to earth place than some pubs.

I really enjoyed the stop and wanted to enjoy another pint but Bell's was waiting for me down the road. I would return to this place in a heartbeat. Maybe I'll get some grub next visit.

Same trip as my Arcadia and Bells trip -

Real simple - if Sons of Anarchy frequented a brewery, this would be it. Totally cool unpretentious vibe. Pretty large mug club thing happening on the ceiling but otherwise, just a good scene. Random tap handles were kinda cool as well. Retail shop had everything going on from homebrew supplies to beer to skating gear to obviously, beer and swag. Very cool place indeed.

I had an absolute blast at Dark Horse ... it's biker bar meets brewpub but nothing intimidating or anything like that. Visited on a Wednesday at noon so it wasn't too crowded. The place is super chill - really cool just to sit there, drink beer, do some people watching and check out the awesome decor (the fish tank is EPIC). The workers were super friendly - chatted with me the whole time and were genuinely engaged. I had the calzone/fold and it was delicious. Tasted a bunch of their brews (they will give you small tasters at no charge if you ask) and threw down a few pints during my visit. It was awesome - go to Dark Horse!
