The atmosphere is quite unique- and I suppose could earn style points for that, but I seriously thought I was in the wrong spot. Yes, it's inside of a greenhouse. If you walk across the astroturf, just past the Miracle Gro bags and hang a right at the little yard gnome- you're there! service was great, comfortable place and quite a few on tap- and a few were really good including The Noble One and The Dark One.

We were really excited to go see this place because they have home brewing equipment and a garden center that grows their own hops. Sounds great?!?

However, when we walked in, there were several cats right at the front and it smelled (best I could tell) like cat urine. Ooof! That isn't a deal breaker, because it is also a garden center. I assume that the brew supplies will be separate, away from all of this. No. The brew kettles were right at the front and one of the malt bags had a cat laying on top of it. The barley was in another room, with the door open and the containers not entirely closed. This room had a good layer of dust and a little cat fur.

They did have quite a good supply of equipment and seemed pretty knowledgeable. Prices seemed ok, but not great. One guy working (I think maybe the owner) said they brewed 20 gallons the day before and the wort was fermenting in the bathroom. Ooof, again.

I really don't want to bash this place; they have a lot of potential. They have classes, lots of supplies, fresh grown hops and friendly. If they just add a little hygiene, they will be great. Perhaps, I am a just bit of a clean freak.
