The atmosphere of the brewpub is amazing, Gothic and very pleasing to the eye.

Something that I particularly enjoyed was how kid friendly they were. Not only did they have a kids menu and crayons, but the kids menu wasn't just reprocessed chicken and fries. Juice, fresh fruit or house brewed root beer were options. Even to add to the kid friendly atmosphere the hosts were playing with the brewmasters daughter, who couldn't have been more than two.

The beverage selection was very accommodating as well. If you find yourself not being able to go to breweries with a significant other because they don't drink beer then this menu will solve it. They had 2 types of cider, wine and fresh root beer as options for the non-beer drinker.

I personally had there rotating wood aged selection and at the time it was Belgium dark strong ale aged 4 months in cognac barrels.

The food was chef created and delicious. I had the duck nachos and they were amazing!!!

Was really impressed with this place ... they had 5 barrel aged selections when I was there and all were solid. Their regular line is also pretty spectacular. Food is freaking AWESOME - you must drink AND eat here!!! Gotta appreciate Belgian styles as this is what they are focusing on ... definitely an up and coming brewery - do not miss this place ... ambiance, beers, food, works, etc was super cool.
