I brought my brothers here over the weekend after a round of golf and they both loved it. I had been a few times before. We bought a round of Mass Rising and a couple pints of Jabby Brau. There is a steady flow of people coming and going, and while it's a small place, it never really felt crowded. No food, but plenty of different options and volumes for trying and bringing home their beer. Whether I'm stopping in for a quick visit or having a couple pints, I am always well-served here.

The place is small, but welcoming. Apparently, it used to be smaller... I don't know how they fit more than 15 customers in there back then. The lone server behind the bar was very nice and quick to fulfill any orders. The selection is rather large for both draft and bottles. The quality is pretty good, but I'm not the biggest fan of lagers. Still, I can get behind these guys. I luckily showed up the day after the Cherry Berliner Braun release, so I got my fill of that. Damn good beer. Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area.

Made my second visit in as many weeks today. Both were between 4-5pm on a weekday so there were just a handful of people there buying or tasting. The guys working at the counter were very friendly and willing to answer any questions I had about the beers.

The space is nice but almost all standing room with just 5 stools at the counter. Not an issue when I went but on a weekend I imagine it could get kind of tight.

All of the current choices are clearly laid out on a chalkboard with various pricing options for samples, glasses, growlers, etc. There was quite a range on tap. Light, dark, maltly, hoppy, strong, sessionable, well known flagships and new small batch creations. It shouldn't be a problem for you to find one (or several) that you like.

Jack's Abby is doing great things with lagers and I feel fortunate that they are close enough for me to drop in sample at the source. Sometime soon I would like to do the tour and see the actual brewing operations. If you find yourself in the area during open hours you really should stop by to taste what's happening.

The amazing beers Jacks Abby is putting out together with the fact it's less than an hour ride from my house and I've never had to stand in line makes this one of my favorite places . The new tasting room is a good place to try a few beers before making your selection for growler fills . This is my go to brewery and I love the fact that i don't have to plan my whole day around a trip to get beer . They also do a good job keeping their website up to date with what's on tap and it seems like someone there is constantly logged into beeradvocate and they do a great job of answering questions on this site .
