4.05/5  rDev +1.8%

A very creative brewery. I had beers made with whole cherry pies and ghost chilis. The beers were well-made and balanced. They were adventurous, but very enjoyable.

The atmosphere is eccentric. Right Brain is located inside of a building where all the other businesses are closed by sundown. The building is on a road/alley that also is home to a commercial baked good warehouse. The bar shares a bathroom that is located outside of the main area, like you'd find in an office building. The bar is very well-lit, There are plenty of tables, but no servers. You must stand in line and order your beers at a countertop. A beer list is written in dry erase marker on a white board. The entire experience feels more like a coffee shop, or a bakery, than a brewery.

All of the idiosyncracies feel deliberate. The beer is allowed to speak for itself. The beers are over-the-top statements, and they do not need an over-the-top delivery. Everyone inside is nice and friendly, and if you want to try some unique beers in an unassuming environment--perhaps while playing one of their several board games--Right Brain is your place.
