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.

Pros: World class barrel aging program. Pretty good price on tasters and pints relative to bars in the area.

Cons: For the most part awful bartenders/people that work there. There are a select few that can be okay but the rest are overly arrogant particularly the ones that work the front. Hot and sweaty bar area. Just atrocious in the summer. Little to no air circulation and sticky sticky floors. Food options limited to food trucks. Parking okay but the brewery is right in the vicinity of a police station.

Overall: Get the beer. Get in and get out or have a beer or two and hope you get lucky with a bartender you can tip well and still won't treat you like dirt.
