I finally broke down and visited this place after talking about it practically since they opened. This place is located in what seems like an old refurbished warehouse right on the train tracks. The tasting room is pretty small; there's a bar that seats maybe 12 or so people, and a few tables and chairs. There's a jukebox, TVs, and it looks like bands play there often. I mean, it's really a hidden little gem. It's kind of divey, but in a good way. Not really my kind of place, but it's a cool hangout if you live in the area.

They had 7 of their beers on tap (one was kicked). Considering the size of the place, it's a decent selection, with a pretty good range of styles. Overall, Prism beers aren't great. They have one or two nailed pretty good, but the others...meh, just not really doing it. Their best is probably the Mason's Hazelnut Coffee Porter. A good bet for a newcomer is to get the sampler flight: you can sample them all or just 4 of them.

Service was fine. Business was very slow when I visited, but our bartender was on the ball the whole time. Food is simple. They have a deep frier, and they make hot dogs. Easy enough. You can get yourself something like chicken fingers, or select from 8 different and interesting hot dogs. Prices on everything are reasonable.

Prism is a neat place to check out, but it's a place I most likely wouldn't ever go back to. As for their beers, when I see them on tap, I do consider them, but by now I have a pretty good idea of what they have to offer, and it's not quite my cup of beer.

Small but great brewery. They have a small pub on the front end. Make sure you don't get lost trying to find them.

Went on a Saturday afternoon. Not at all crowded. Seems to be a two level affair with the taproom/brewery on the upper level and a cellar down below. Especially impressed with the Mason's coffee porter. Everything else was decent but not life-changing. Good prices. Pretty limited kitchen in the bar area (fries, pretzels, pickles and the like) but looked appetizing and less-pretentious than some similar places. Would go back.
