Went there last weekend on Sunday while I was there for a family wedding. The only local brewery I got to visit, because it was relatively close to the hotel.

Atmosphere was nice. In terms of scale and quality, the location reminds of Silver City in Silverdale, WA. Kinda hip, functional location with prominent brewing facilities.

Quality of both the food and the beer was good. Service was not. They took a bit to take our order, took longer to deliver it, and never gave us little details like napkins or silverware. I had to go and find it and say, "Hey, can I have that?"

Selection was good. Menu is large and varied, and they have a nice selection of styles on tap. I was disappointed their black IPA nitro was out when I was there.

Food was good. There were five of us, and everything we ordered was different, and all of it was well prepared and tasty. Prices seemed more than reasonable. I think beers were only $3.50 a pint. (938 characters)

The vibe was what I would call a typical loud yuppy bar atmosphere. A lot of cool people trying very hard to be cool. We ordered the San Tan sampler which is seven 4 oz samples. My wife liked the Gordo Stout so the girl behind the bar brought her a sample of some stout mixture she personally liked. It was infused with coffee beans or something; tasted almost like iced coffee to me. There was a seasonal beer called Mr. Pineapple, where they add pineapple juice to a wheat beer. I've never had a wheat beer I liked and this was no exception. It tasted like a wheat beer - if there was pineapple in it I couldn't detect it. Another of the seven samples was their HefeWeizen, an unfiltered Bavarian wheat beer. It too tasted like every wheat beer I've ever tried. Of the five remaining beers on the paddle I'd say their flagship beer, Devil's Ale, was probably my favorite, and I would rate it a B. It took forever to get someone's attention so we could pay the tab. It was busy, but not THAT busy. If we had wanted to order another beer I probably would have decided against it after waiting so long. When we were walking out there were a group of waiters standing in the only pathway just talking. They noticed us but made no effort to move. The tables are shoved in so tight there's barely enough room to squeeze thru. So I decided to turn around and go the long way around the table just to get out. As I was coming around the table one of the waiters from the talking group walked around the other way and started actually waiting on the people at that table, which blocked my way out from that angle too. I wouldn't have mentioned that at all if it had been super busy in there and it was customers blocking the exits because there was no where else to stand. But it wasn't that busy, and it wasn't customers.
So in short - the beer wasn't anything special, I'm not really into that yuppy "in crowd" theme, and the service was less than stellar. We both commented on our way out that we were glad we checked it out - but we more than likely won't go back. (2,062 characters)

Great spot with a bunch of beers on tap. Lots of different styles available. They tout their beers as "southwestern style" or something if that nature. I took this to mean a bit on the watery side. Not bad, just everything I tasted was a bit lacking in lingering flavor. Didn't eat, but the food looked awesome. Servers and staff were nice and attentive. (359 characters)

This is one of the places that got me in to brew pubs. They have great beer and amazing food. The menu changes regularly and they have delicious specials, guest beers, special brewery only beers etc... They are definitely worth checking out. (242 characters)
