First time visit and had a great experience. Booked a tour a few online so it would all be set up. The tour was only my girlfriend and I with the tour guide. It was very one on one which added to the flair of the brewery. He showed us their set up and explained how they brew and their specific set up.

The shop is small but to be expected. They do growler fills that seemed very affordable ($7-10 I think?) They also had some of their seasonal releases available in bombers, as well as singles of all the other beers.

The employees were extremely friendly and made for an all around good experience. (603 characters)

My favorite brewery! Small brewery feel, with very helpful, though busy, employees. My only knock is that they did not have a large selection of their beers available for tasting. Still, they make some of the best beers around, so i will forgive them :) (256 characters)

Love this place. It's fantastic in that everything on tap is at the very least decent but most are really good, especially for a relatively young brewery.

Small batch offerings are consistently great - the most recent (as of now) #8 DIPA was fantastic.

The people in the taproom are friendly and welcoming. They're fast with a pint, growler fill, or even a full metal jacket (which I think is generally 12).

They've just started serving food which far surpassed my expectations. The special I had was a brisket sandwich and it was much better than I expected and above the quality you'd get in a lot of local restaurants.

The taproom can definitely get crowded, especially on release days when it's barely standing room only but It's worth it to get Bitter Valentine bottled that morning. (795 characters)

Great brewery that makes some exceptional world class beers. They also make a wide variety and excel at all of them. Feel sorry for those that don't get to enjoy Alewerks Pumpkin, Cafe Royal or Bitter Valentine. Really outstanding beers. Would like to see more barrel aged limited releases from them though. (311 characters)
