I have been here twice. This is the wherehouse where stone got their start. It is big open and can get cold on a winter night. The 1st time was over 3 years ago then the counter was very small and there was not man places to sit down and enjoy the beer. In the last three years the place have has added a very large counter and added a few places to sit down. The beer here is great! The service is very friendly and the bartender will recommend a beer based on what you like, they are always willing to go that extra mile to help you out. Food trucks will often come here and we had Sushi truck on the Friday night visit. It was crowded on a Friday night but we still were able to found a place to sit. Great place, Great Beer! You are able to get beers from both Port and Lost Abbey. Over all a great place.

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.
