Emily and I were both very surprised when we walked in the door to find only about 12 bar stools, and a very small "tasting room". So I had to knock a few points for atmosphere, because when it's full, it's full, and uncomfortable. The quality of the beer was middle of the road. Tried the Farmer John Brown Ale, and felt it was a decent brown, nothing too extraordinary, but nothing too bad. We however did enjoy the Aged Series Farmer Johns brown ale, which was supposedly aged for 7 months on Rye Barrels. It was very tasty...the oak and rye spice did nice work to the middle of the road brown. Then we tried their Straight Pipe Stout, and it was the same. Medium cream head, medium bodied. Seemed almost the brewery was aiming not to miss, rather than shoot for bulls. We then tried to Stout aged in Oak Barrels because the Farmer John in Rye ran out. Once again, the Stout was a lot better after some age to it, and barrels did some nice creamy/spicing to the beer. Will return when in the area.
