I visited the brewery while in town last week, and was blown away by the experience overall.
First, it's right next to the giant Goodyear blimp hangar and inside what seems to look like an old garage/storage unit complex. It's quite ominous at first. I was wondering if I was at the right place. But once inside, whoa man, was it entirely different. Nice bar, nice floors; great lighting, televisions for both the menu and viewing, and an overall welcoming atmosphere.
Once we sat down (which was out back on the patio), we were quickly served and told about some "rare" out of town beers, which included Three Floyd's Man-O-Awe ($10). I was also directed to their Rare & Vintage menu, which was included in the back of the standard beer and food menu. That list of oddities was incredible and we shared a few bottles from it, none of which were as good as the 2011 BA Boris Royale for $50.
The standard beers ranged from $2-$4 a taster (4oz.) to $4-$8 for a pint, depending on the beer. The food offerings were also reasonably priced.
I'm planning a return visit in November, and next time I'm planning on bringing things home. Awesome place. Definitely one of the nicest overall breweries I've ever been to.
