I really dig the atmosphere and look of this place - I'm a sucker for old manufacturing sites re-done for restaurants and residences.

The only problem was that it was a 107 degree day and the A/C was not on (maybe they use swamp coolers that simply quite keep up with excessive heat?) It was really uncomfortable and distracting. Would like to try this place when it wasn't swealtering.

Started with the hefe since it seemed like a good refreshing choice on a hot day. Was simply mediocre...too much bubble gum flavor. On a side note, was served a lemon wedge even though I didn't request it...but it improved the flavor.

Next was the IPA, which I discovered was the "flagship" of the venerable Gentle Ben's brewery (same owners/brewers). Eh. Tated dirty to me, not very hoppy at all, was a struggle to drink.

Finished with a golden ale, which wasn't very tasty but was refreshing enough and washed away the unpleasant IPA taste still lingering.

Staff was friendly enough, and the prices were really CHEAP.

I'd visit again if not summer time and avoid the IPA.
