I have been here three times in the past three days.

Walking in was a hint confusing seeing as there is a salon out front. For those who are not locals or familiar with this location it might be a bit odd. But after the first time you know exactly where to go.
One is welcomed by a very nice and modern décor brew pub. Lots of open seating, a long L shaped bar, and a wonderfully transcribed board telling what is on tap. The three times my brother-in-law and I cam here it was a bit of off hours but the atmosphere was still great and the employees were eager to banter and BS with us about the beers. My brother-in-law and I both had a flight and then a couple other beers (at the other various times) that we enjoyed. They had some interesting beers (some I wouldn’t get again but was glad to try) but others that were solid for sure that I have enjoyed a few times.

The prices were overall good, and service great (sorry for the old fogies that feel they were not served well or are “out of the loop”…maybe they are). The selection was great, as in they had tons of RB’s own beers (no guest taps which would have been nice I will admit). We had plenty to choose from.

All in all, I have had an enjoyable experience and would recommend people to come here. The only downside was there was no real food avaliable.

Ok I'm gonna just check these off the list as they go...

Atmosphere-
First off pulling up to Right Brain is strange in and of itself as there is very little signage and lets face it anything to acknowledge that you're in the right place as parking is to the side. Once you make your way inside you'll find a reasonably large open space with picnic and high top tables as well as a bar. Mid day on a Saturday will find you in her with little to no light(hey somebody turn on the damn lights!!). I been to breweries at hot tub rental places and some weird shit but this was strange and by the placement of their coffee mug-mug club and artwork that's what they are going for.

Quality-
Both food and drink were very good. No complaints here.

Service-
Once we got served at our table(we opted for a picnic table as we had a group of 8) it was good. Took a while to get a feel if we had to go to the bar or someone was going to come out to us.

Selection-
Excellent here. 4-5 BA options and maybe another 12-16 after that. Everyone in our group was able to find something they liked.

Food-
This was a mixed review. I liked my waffle burgers(2/$9) only available on fri/sat but my wife did not care for her waffle sandwich. I like the originality her and enjoyed mine.

Value-
Lunch for 2, 2.5 pints and I think $35 after tip was good for me.
