Stopped in last Saturday, 12/1/12, with my brother and enjoyed some pizza and beer. We had the Daydream Believer coffee stout, Jackson’s Joy Festbeir, Black squirrel peated porter and fiddlestix IPA. All of the beers were good, the coffee stout was a real coffee bomb and the peated porter was almost too much peat for a full 16oz pour. I was disappointed to find out that they serve wine and liquor, I understand that some places have to do it but it makes me question their level of confidence in the beer that they brew.
The inside of the place is oddly shaped with many choke points and I guess there was a back room, but I never saw it. The place is decorated with random stuff to make it look funky which also helps it fit into the East Town neighborhood.
We sat at the bar and the service was good for how busy they were, I was really surprised that they were that busy at open. I did find it inappropriate that the bar tender served our second beers into the same glasses as our first ones. She did rinse them out with the glass rinsing device that all of the quality beer bars are putting in by the taps and that made me question the cleanliness of the equipment.
We shared bread sticks w/cheese and two pizzas which were good but the sauce left something to be desired.

Whoa, wtf? Some really out of line, low ratings here.
Harmony Brewing is a small brewpub with a MICROBREW license, which means they are allowed to serve Wine and Spirits...it has nothing to do with the fact that they don't have faith in their product, there are dozens of these through out the state. They can't distribute their product.
Like others have stated, the place is small, and quaint, and I like it. It's got two different levels, with a sort of loft style seating option towards the back, that looks over their very small brew system. This place can't seat more than 35 people. It's got a great atmosphere. You can tell that the local crowd really enjoys the pizza, and it gives Harmony a very nice upbeat, friendly, local GR feel. The pizza was delicious too. Nice crispy crust, with some unique and interesting toppings, and great combinations. An awesome mid day snack for the day drinker.
The beer, has never blown me away. There has never been that has blown me away, or even walked away from saying "That was a really good beer".
It's a nice stop. Great atmosphere, very good pizza, and ok beer. Check it out for yourself. These kind of places continue to get better, and you never know when they might bust out some really tasty brews.
