Decorah is a very pleasant small Iowa town. The brewery itself is not far from the college. The building it occupies is not the most beautiful to look at, or the most pleasant to sit in, but it is all about the beer. Mostly for those that love pale ales. I did not enjoy all the pale ales but I absolutely loved a couple. I did try their oatmeal stout which I also enjoyed. Did not try the two lagers they had on-tap. The Naughty 90 was quite surprising. Have not been a fan of oak-aged IPAs, but this one I really enjoyed. Maybe branching out in a few more style directions would not hurt. The people drinking was a mixture of college kids, cyclists wearing way too tight biking shorts, bikers, locals, and me. Everyone was friendly and ready to start a conversation. The two gals working were friendly, effecient, and knowledgeable. Could of spent hours here but I had a long ways to go on my travels and had to hit the road. Cannot wait for their beer to get more distribution. Bought a growler ($18 which I thought was expensive and it was clear glass WTF!) to fulfill a commitment. Have no feedback yet how it traveled.

Can't really say anything bad about these guys besides the fact that they need to expand the foot-print faster. Always great hosts and the IPAs are second to none - keep up the good work my friends! Just make sure to setup the brewery release for next year...
