*I am going to combine my scores and reviews for both the taproom and barrel works since they are one listing over here on BA*
Our last stop on our drive to SD. I was mainly stopping to check out the barrel works but we decided to stay for dinner so I got to check out both. Atmosphere at the barrel works was awesome, you can get a beer and take a walk through the barrel room which is awesome. The taproom was packed with people but it still had a good vide. Quality across the board was quite good. Lots of great touches in both spaces help but don't detract from the atmosphere. Service in both spaces was solid. I never had to wait for a beer and the bartender at barrel works was great to talk to, especially being a fellow cicerone. Selection was excellent. Taproom had all of the staples on and the barrel works had 9-10 specialty beers on, most of which never leave the premises. Food in the taproom was pretty good. I got a burger and it was pretty good. Prices on the beers were fine, food was definitely overpriced on nearly all of the dishes. Overall a really nice showpiece for a great brewery. Glad we could stop and check it out.

The food is above average and though a bit pricey. I haven't had anything bad off of the menu yet. Firestone wine is always a good choice, though they have a good selection of other brands. The beer is always great, of course.
The staff goes above and beyond to make sure you get your money's worth.
**Barrelworks is an across the board 5.00. My only complaint about it is that I wish they were open more often than a few hours on the weekend.
