Visited Mother Earth on a saturday evening just before 8:00 pm when their "trading post" aka their packaged beer to go store closed. The brewery taproom itself is very clean offering up a U-shaped bar with 8 or 10 taps and a handpump cask that was empty during my visit. There is room for maybe a dozen people or so at the bar with lots of standing room and couches as well to relax on. They have a beer garden with cornhole to play and as previously mentioned a trading post for to-go bottles, cans and mix-a-six.

It appears as though 4 or 5 taps hold their mainstay offerings with the remaining 4 or 5 taps pouring seasonals. Whats on tap is displayed both on a big screen TV (with pricing) as well as on tabletop displays. Prices ranged from 4.50 a pint to 6-7 a snifter for their experimental stuff. The highlights during my visit appeared to be an imperial chocolate version of their staple porter as well as a freshly released batch of blackberry windowpane.

The bartender was attentive and informative. Pricing seemed pretty much in line with what I am use to. My only gripe was that there was only 1 unique thing to be had on tap. Literally everything else could be purchased to-go from their trading post at a fraction of the price ($10.50 a mix-a-six verse $5 average on tap.) Its worth a visit to say you were there and it appears to be the only brewery within a reasonable distance of our stay. However, I doubt I would go back unless they offered more unique selections since most of their packaged stuff can be sourced elsewhere in the state at the same price or cheaper than their draft prices.
