My wife and I loved visiting this brewery on our honeymoon, what a gem of a brewery to visit for beer purposes alone.
The atmosphere is like many breweries- in an industrial park outside, but pretty cool long bar inside with chairs made up of unused malt! Cool!
The beer selection and quality was sensational- you had all the Port Brewing stuff including American style IPAs, Stouts, Porters, Strong ales, etc. which all were super fresh and tasty and then also a huge selection of the Lost Abbey staples and some seasonal bottles/drafts (Framboise de Amarosa, Angels Share, etc) all of which also were spot on. Great stuff overall, and the samplers were priced very well! $2 for like 4ozs of beer from a world class brewer is excellent in my book.
The guys and gals working were all knowledgable and handled all the service stuff quite well.
Overall a great experience.

Stopped in here right after Stone since they are so close together, thought this place would be bigger for some reason. Atmosphere was hopping. It was pretty packed by the time we got there but we were able to snag a barrel to stand at pretty quickly. Love the ability to take your beers into the barrel room, we took advantage of that on the second round of beers. Quality was solid. Lots of original art on the walls for sale to go along with the usual swag and beers. Service was decent but nothing to write home about. I had to wait a bit longer than I like to when the lines were as short as they were and by the time I did get a beer it was 4 people deep behind me. Selection was good but nothing amazing. Only one beer on I couldn't get at home in bottles or draft. I would have loved to see at least one limited bottle on the bottle list but that wasn't meant to be as well. They had a food truck setting up out front when we left but I had just eaten. Prices were reasonable so no problem there. Overall a nice space to showcase a world class brewery. Could use a bit more specialty beers on but I still had a good time checking them out. I would definitely return in the future.
