Visited here on a brew-crawl across the United States, luckily catching a glimpse of the word "Brewery" out the corner of my eye while traveling down the highway. When I visited, I think they had about 8 beers on tap. I sampled 2 of them and they both tasted like soap. I thought it was the glasses, so I had the waitress make sure the bartender was rinsing them. The next two also tasted like soap, so I mentioned it to the brewer. He tasted some samples and said they tasted normal to him, so I guess that is how they are supposed to taste. My girlfriend also mentioned that they tasted like soap, without me mentioning it first. We got some food which was quite average and overpriced. They offer 12oz bottles, nitros, and kegs out the door, as well as seasonal 6 packs. The waitress was average in her knowledge about their beer. The atmosphere was cozy enough, with lots of colorful mining charicatures on the wall and a few TVs in a dining room seperate from the bar.

Stopped into the TK on my way to a wedding in Granby. Maybe it's just on weekends, but parking isn't all that great. However, I won't knock off points b/c I like that it's a small community joint.
Not a small place. You can tell they've crept their way into acquiring and expanding into neighboring structures over the years. Bar/brewery on the right, restaurant on the left. Host/ess station seemed overwhelmed, but got seated fairly quickly for lunch.
There really is not separation between bar and brewing operations, maybe a railing. With 20 some fermenters, they can crank out many beers. I had the Munich Amber and Rye Porter, both were decent and easy drinking. Matched my pulled pork sammy pretty well, although the sammich could have been warm. Big deal, I ate that sum'bitch anyway.
They had been brewing their pumpkin beer for several days in a row now, and I think they are ready to move on. A wheat wine was being experimented as well as a BA saison. Not sure if they will make more of each, but they had some interesting characteristics.
