Stopped in for drinks after work, and ended up staying for a while to watch the football game. Bar is by the entrance, with a couple patios and a large restaurant area. Design is modern lodge, the brewing equipment was behind glass towards the front. The whole place seemed upscale, but also felt a bit sterile. The beers were all good, especially the APA special they had on tap. Didn't try any food, but did check out the menu .. looked interesting but a bit pricey.
Good quality beer, but the atmosphere didn't appeal to me - a bit too sterile, with a bit of a corporate feel. That said if you are in the area its a nice place to stop for a beer or three, and it worked well with a work crowd.
