Being a locavore when it comes to beer, I felt it incumbent upon me to visit this place when visiting with student interns this past summer. I just stopped by for a quick one so cannot offer a full review, so take it for what it is worth. The place is very contemporary in style and maybe would not be out of place in say Portland or other points west. As it is, it sits in a large car park behind Hobby Lobby.
Unfortunately, I rolled the dice on a tripel, at least that is what the board said. Regrettably, it was perhaps the worst beer I have ever paid serious money for. What can I say? It was just dreadful: more like an alcoholic Mountain Dew than anything. On that basis I would not recommend trying any of the others.
Beyond the establishments that understand what constitutes good beer, there is a population of places flogging the "craft beer" image ineptly. It does the business no good to have swill portrayed as good beer. This seems to be the case here unfortunately.
