Stopped in the night before FoBAB '11, and sampled some Bourbon Barrel Black Power.
The place was packed, and it was going to be an hour wait or so for a table (just like everything else of course), so we just got a round of the BBN Black Power and went upstairs to kind of try and stay out of the way.
Nice crowd inside, lots of young folk enjoying themselves, having a good time. I liked the atmosphere, it was very vibrant.
The beer was really good, I enjoyed it. Can't say that I've had very many BBN aged Oatmeal Stouts, but it was very easy drinking and satisfying, nice flavors. I'll try to make it for a meal next time, but I like what I have seen so far.

Well, we tried to go to the BrewPub but the wait was about 45min. No problem, it was Sunday at 1:30pm. We took the 1.5mi cruise to their Brewery/Brew Room. This was perfect! Its a fairly hidden location, just a small sign on a warehouse door. We walked in and I felt a breeze of heaven! They have a huge Tasting Room next to their Brew Room. Long bar with a wall filled with tappers, and a cooler filled with their brews(great prices too)
We sat down and tried their brand new BBA Barleywine as well as their Stout, Red Ale, Black IPA, and Smoked Lager. We also bought bottles of the BBA BW and their BBA Porter for enjoyment at home!
I am probably nit-picking at this point, but I would've liked to see some of their Special BBA brews on tap aside from just the Barleywine. Also, again nit-picking(and Im sure its a LAW) but you're not allowed to open the bottles they sell there. No problem.
This is a spot I will definitely visit again!
Seems like they allow you to bring in your own food, as we saw a table of people with outside food, as they don't serve food at the brewery.
They do tours here, but we just enjoyed some brews and left!
