Pretty big storefront, including a taproom and a "to-go" bar. Most of the seating is outside, but I was disappointed that of the great variety of beer brewed therein and the many taps available, only one dark beer was available for purchase. (241 characters)

Nestled in among the art galleries, in a three story building originally used for livestock distribution, this place has some serious character. Outside, railings, tables, chairs are all made of welded "found" metal tools and items. Just wandering around the place is a treat! It was getting pretty hot and sunny by the time we visited so we didn't want to sit out in the open patio with most of the crowd. We headed in to the small taproom proper, where there was really just space to line up and order, with only a couple stools inside. We got two samplers, going to a second alternate serving station outside to fill up one of the beers we ordered. They also have bowls of peanuts and buckets for shells...something I haven't seen at a bar for years! So if you have a serious peanut allergy, you may want to stay away from Wedge. We ended up sitting outside on cool rotating and moving chair sculptures, out of the brightest of the hot sun. I drank through the samplers and enjoyed many of the beers. The Julian Price Pilsner was well made and very refreshing! A hemp ale was actually tasty and will probably make me test positive on the next drug test I take. And the Iron Rail IPA was classic and well balanced. My least favorite was, much like Urban Orchard, the Wit. Overall, a very cool space, vibe, and a good collection of solid beers. I'm glad we went back to this place instead of heading back into downtown. (1,435 characters)

A short ride on the W1 (or W2) bus from downtown drops you off in the River Arts District, an evolving neighborhood where old warehouses have been converted into galleries, restaurants, cafes and one excellent 1300 barrel brewpub called Wedge Brewing Company.

Wedge Brewing can be found in the lower section of Wedge Studio, itself located in a building that once housed livestock in the 19th Century. Literally situated adjacent to railroad tracks, Wedge can be reached via Lyman Avenue, or down a staircase hidden behind several exhibits of iron sculpture.

It is as quaint a place as anyone can relax and enjoy some quality craft beer. Enter the taproom, which takes up a small corner of the brewery; check the chalkboard for whatever beer is available (about 8 drafts), order a pint or a sampler and then head outside and grab a seat at one of the communal tables. Note: there is neither table service nor is there any inside service. Another Note: Wedge offers an express IPA window for their delightful Third Rail. Also on tap is a complex Abbey style, a hoppier West Coast IPA and a hearty porter. Should you desire something to eat, there is a food truck parked next to the entrance. The patio is a lively place with locals, tourists, kids and dogs. (1,262 characters)

Hard to find, but plenty of parking if you park by the train tracks. This area is very trendy/hipster, which is not really my thing. My rating is skewed given that I don't fit in with that scene. The decor of the building is cool and very interesting. Long lines to get beer as the bar was not laid out well. Long lines for bathrooms as well. The beer was OK, nothing really amazing. Prices were very cheap with $6 flights of 4. Most of the seating I saw was outside, not even sure if inside seating is an option as I only went to the Bar and IPA window. (554 characters)
