I've been here on several occasions usually on days of release, or when I want to be damn sure that I get one of their products. I really truly enjoyed my first visit to this location when I went on a tour back in Sept. of 2010 and it's caused me to come back ever since. The beer the brew doesn't get much fresher then when you get it there. The atmosphere is a funky style urban chic. They've got swag on the back wall with some cool trinkets. The storefront also has it's own 4 taps for growler fills right in the wall with someone always operating it. The quality of the products here are second to none in regards to their Half Acre stuff. If it's hop heavy get in on growler, you'll never regret that decision. The guys who work there are always really cool, and are more than helpful when you're looking for something. They are amicable and will answer questions as best they can about the goings on of their brewery. The selection for growlers is usually the 3 main beers (Daisy Cutter, Over Ale, and Gossamer) but usually a rotating yearly release beer as well (which is mostly what I go for). Also they have some Belgian bombers in their fridge as well for sale. There aren't too many things to pick from, but usually you're only there to get Half Acre stuff anyway, in which case, it won't get any better than straight from the source. Overall, I love coming to this place, simple as that.
