Stop #330 on my world brewery tour.

Visited around 8:00 - 9:00 closing time on a Monday night.

Small tap room in an old corner building. Nice character. Got to stand in the brewing room when I took a call and someone working there told me I could go into the brewery where it was more quite. Very pretty hot-side gear. Guy said more bigger equipment is on the way.

Had a very nice and fresh canned IPA and a good Abbey on draft. They do have a barrel aged program but nothing available tonight.

There was an ebb and flow of people including a group of cyclists who made it pretty crowded.

In two trips to the Quad cities I've visited all breweries and this is among the finest (just no food). (702 characters)

Small establishment with the majority of its seating outside on wooden benches. It's their brews that are the showcase, but the real treat here is the great location with a beautiful view of the nearby dam and drawbridge. (222 characters)

My favorite local place. Great vibe with a great patio. Very nice BT's. Their Golden Keg events are a blast. They are tapping of new beers and the first keg is free. Great 1/2 price growlers on Sundays and Mondays. Not top tier beer, but they try. Fresh beer because close to home. Dog friendly with lots of bikers. Have a coupon that they print locally in which carry out even cheaper. Redband stout is their best! (425 characters)

Definitely the best of the Quad City area breweries. Patio is great during the summer -- dog friendly, lots of places to sit, extra tap island for busy days. No food service but several local places will deliver. Friendly staff and patrons.

Good variety of seasonal brews and standards. Big fan of the Golden Ale and the 312 Pale.

Tip: If the Government Bridge swing span is open tap beers are 1/2 off. (409 characters)

The others have pretty accurately described the place. I think that I visited on a night in the middle of the week, so there was not a lot of people, which is ok with me. It may have been close to closing time. The bartender was friendly and knew what she was talking about. There was also a couple of refrigerators for carry out, which is nice, especially for out-of-towners looking to sample the local brew. I don't recall any music being played. If I am ever back, I am sure that I will stop by. (508 characters)
