So crowded and not enough space for a true line to form. Total free for all. Beers were fine, and they had about six available along with several bottles as well.

Hard to park as well. (187 characters)

Place was not packed to my surprise only because i'm a huge "lunch" fan. I was expecting long lines and limited cases but the truth is that they had no limit and there were no lines. Lunch is one of my all time favorite beers. There really wasn't too much vibe going on. Just a regular tasting room with a nice view but the staff on this particular day didn't go out of their way to make me feel welcomed. They weren't rude, don't get me wrong, but they weren't very welcoming either. I tasted everything they had except for Dinner which wasn't available at the time but that's ok, I had a great experience... more so due to the fact that I was in great company. Regardless, a very nice looking tasting room, great beer and great selection. If the staff would have been even slightly more hospitable I would have given it a straight up 5. Will definitely go back though (for the beer). lol (899 characters)

Must stuck-up tap room I've been to; the crepe I got out front was delicious though. (84 characters)

Lovely place that is all about the beer. I found the staff to be friendly and helpful without overbearing. The beers are tremendous - a must visit. Seating is limited so plan accordingly, (190 characters)

One of the cleanest breweries I have seen. As a home brewer, I understand the importance of cleanliness and sanitation when making beer, and this brewery exemplifies that standard. Nothing is worse then going to a place that creates something you consume and seeing how dirty it is. Also great beer, good service, what else can you ask for? (340 characters)
