Visited on a Monday during the tail end of Happy Hour. Should begin that I was very skeptical of this highly hyped place at the outset.

Located in a past-its-prime ugly strip mall off a busy road. Few tables outside - who the hell would ever sit there?

Neat looking hipster joint on the inside. Large stage to the right, collection of couches, tables, high back chairs, etc. Comfy. Friend & I sat down & waited for service...& waited...& waited...even though only a few other folks there. Finally took matters into my own hands & went to the bar myself to order some beers. More waiting while the barkeep tended to various duties

1st up was the Hefe - meh. On par with a Widmer Hefe...drinkable with no obvious flaws but forgettable. Ok maybe the next beer, a Porter, will cheer me up.

Porter was a 1 trick pony with just a roast flavor & no depth or character. Why do I hear about people in NYC & Philly lining up & geeking out over this brewery? Aha - they have an IPA on tap....that must be the star of the show.

As it turns oh the IPA was the biggest train wreck of all. Loaded with Diacetyl & virtually no hop presence whatsoever. I might say it was just an "off" batch but seeing how other basic styles weren't show stoppers, its probably par for the course. Perhaps FB can only brew beer with bacon & pineapple to mask brewing faults?

Split a hookah with my friend which was enjoyable, but wasn't willing to drink any other FB beers.
