I have visited Kane over 15 times, so I felt inclined to give it a proper review.
Atmosphere: Very small, but never overcrowded where you feel cramped. When you walk in you are greeted with a small tap room with shirts, glasses, hats, growlers, ect.. with about 6 taps. As you walk into the brewery you are given the bare bones, all the brewing equipment, about 30 barrels, bunch of picnic benches and barrels for seating. There is also another draft station where you can get all their one offs and smaller batch beers.
Quality: Awesome! Every beer I have had from Kane has been a winner. Their IPAs are a force to be recon with, and their barrel aged beers are also really impressive.
Service: Always friendly and prompt, that's all I really ask for. As I overhear others ask about styles and such, they are more than willing to give advice.
Selection: Really amazing for being such a small brewery. Usually 12 or 13 (can't remember) taps available with all their year round beers, small batch, barrel beers, and a nitro handle. They usually have a bottle available as well, sometimes more.
Food: Non existent, eat before hand. They have a large lot in the back of the brewery where I think a food truck would kill it in the summers.
Value: Usually all full pours are $5, just varying portion sizes. Flights are $6 for 4 4oz samples or anything on tap.
Overall: I love this place and their is a reason I keep going back and back. If anyone is in the area or in need of a destination, I highly recommend Kane Brewing Company.

Atmosphere: The building is a shared use building, with a shared entry way with another business. Once you go through the internal entry way, you are greeted with a nice and inviting tap room. Well lit, nicely finished, and decently open. Beyond the initial tap room is a wide open brewing room, with tables to sit while you have beer, as well as another bar with a couple extra taps. This room is more utilitarian, and much cooler (temp), but they have some nice wood picnic tables, and some upright barrels. The barrels they use for aging beer are near the bar. The brewing equipment is roped off in one section.A really cool place to go, and a fun place to try beer
Quality: All the glassware and tasting trays are good quality, growlers available are quality swing tops, and the beer is top notch
Service: It can get busy, but you can always manage to get more beers at a reasonable pace at either bar.
Selection: 11 different brews on tap between the two bars (one is a nitro tap of a brew thats on regular tap as well). One beer available in bottles at this time, but that apparently varies based on what has been recently bottled. Merchandise available, and 1L and 2L growlers available (though not all taps are available for growler fills)
Food: None available, I suggest eating before you get there
Value: Reasonably priced, most growler fills were $7/$12, with a few being more expensive at $11/$20. I feel it is a good value for the quality you get
Overall: I think this is an excellent place to stop, especially since it is one of the best places to pick up beer from Kane. If you're in the area, I highly recommend checking it out.
