Visited a half a dozen times between 2007 and now.

The tasting is all done inside the brewery. There is no real tasting room nor are there any chairs to sit on. They just have some taps running through the wall of a keg fridge and a plastic fold up table that they set up every Saturday. Not sure what the policy is on wandering the brewery but they've never said anything to me about exploring. I'd score this higher but the last time I was there they had thousands of pounds of spent grain sitting outside waiting to be hauled off. It STUNK inside and in the general vicinity of the brewery.

The beer is usually pretty good and probably warrants a better score but the last time I was there (with gobzilla) the beers all had a strange metallic flavor. Most were total drain pours.

The people that work are always very nice and try their best to accomodate you. I remember in the early(er) days of the brewery there would be one, maybe two people working the tasting and that person would usually have been drinking a bit with the customers. In general they are pretty laid back.

The selection definitely falls into categories. Hoppy, Belgian, and other. But at least there are choices. If you are a hophead then SD is the place to be. Here you can have any number of moderate to intense doses of hops (ESB, 30th St Pale, West Coast IPA, Hop Head Red, Imperial IPA, etc). They have a Belgian brown, stout, IPA, and tripel. The selection is rounded out by a porter, stout, double stout, and barleywine.

Go if you want to support these guys or if you havent been but once or twice is enough for the tickers. Most of their beers are either bottled or available by the keg.

Prices are great, the hours are not.

Ample parking. and large central room indoors with 3-4 bar staff on the early Sat Pm when I went. Fairly efficient overall. Standing room mostly in the indoor area but an outdoor garden area also available with perimeter and table seating. there was a food truck there when I went which was reasonably priced. Dog friendly. Clean bathrooms with multiple stalls. I'm not a huge fan of Green Flash overall, but this facility is accommodating/inviting. No bus tours on this day/time either. The tap list on the website reflected accurately at the tasting room. Hope this helps. Cheers. .
