I popped into this brewery based purely on the quality of a beer of theirs I had tasted somewhere else. I was very surprised by this tiny little venue.
The place is very laid back and low lit. There is ample bar seating and several tables and benches around. There is also a back patio which is shared with a local grilled cheese restaurant (where you can order good cheese or daiya sandwiches - yay for vegan daiya 'cheese'). There is a great selection on tap with something for everyone. We tried a sampler of their beers and then filled a growler of our fav (the maple porter).
I don't think $14 is too steep for a growler fill of quality beer. I've not run into too many breweries filling for anything under the $12 to $14 range. Some bars/restaurants do $10 fills but it's not their product and they have inflated food pricing to balance the budget. These are pretty scarce beers around town so it''s worth it to fill up.
I loved the music selection playing and the bartender was very nice and attentive. I will definitely return!

What a cool little pub. Nice dark woods, a small bar, and a few tables with a roll up garage door. The atmosphere was great, and I felt right at home.
The beers were all great that I had, and the food was pretty good too. The menu is somewhat diverse, and everything that I saw that I didn't eat looked great.
The bartender at the time was a great and humorous guy who wasn't afraid to get into a conversation.
The pints were a great buy at happy hour. After that they were reasonable. The food was priced quite well. My only beef might be the growler prices. $20 w/ glass is too steep, and $14 for a fill is over the top when some other pubs in town are filling for $10.
Great palce, and great beer. A good value.
