Visited over Xmas so this review is from memory. Very nice place well worth a visit. Small but homey feel, can get crowded but isn't that part of the experience?...got a kick from single tables on the stairwell landings! Staff very friendly and knowledgable, the owners and a mom appeared to be doing the cooking and food running to the front. My wife and I had beer and food. Beers 8+ on various selections plus 8-9 sampler which we did. A couple very nice beers, a couple ok and needed a little tweeking. I'm a hophead but I thought one of the other beers was the best put together...can't remember right now which. One firkin from the stout I believe. Food was very good, homemade with some nice local touches. You will not be disappointed from a visit, I enjoyed my visit. (777 characters)

Great small-town local brewpub. Inside an old school building, and they kept a lot of that homely feel. You feel like you're drinking in your living room with your family, very inviting atmosphere. Can't vouch for their food as I didn't have any, but it seems to be well-liked. Their beer selection is phenomenal and changes frequently, with many one off beers served from the firkin or randall. Check it out if you're in the area, but be warned, every time I've stopped by it's been VERY busy, so the earlier the better! (521 characters)

Great brewery to check out. The bartender that waited on my group was suggesting blends that he would mix up right there, on the spot! Very impressive! (153 characters)

Still samples only. No sales of pints.
Growlers for home consumption only.
Lots of great ones on tap.
8 on tap to sample.
All seem pretty balanced, nothing appealing to fringe tastes but all capture target well.
Staff enjoyed working there, excited about the future. Great to see.
No food yet, sounds like it is in there plans. (327 characters)
