I was able to stop by after working up a thirst at the huge antiques place in Columbus (6 floors of stuff in an old factory, quite a bit of beer related stuff).
Large windows in front and the tall ceilings give it an airy feeling. The bar is along the right and the semi-open kitchen is in the back left corner. Swag is for sale and is displayed on a rack by the front door.
Service was friendly and they were giving out samples of one of their new releases. I counted a total of 8 beers on tap, but I may have missed one. I sampled 4 beers with full pints of two. I think they show some promise, but would like to revisit when they have a little more experience with their brewing set-up. The beers had a dry almost cider like after taste. If I sampled their IPA blind, I would swear it as a Belgian Pale Ale.
I did not try the food but will next time. The menu had several interesting choices and they are very big on using local ingredients. In fact they had a picture of the “local supplier of the month” up on the wall. I like that!
They had a decent sized crowd for happy hour. They are a friendly bunch. I noticed a lot of the patrons were member of their mug club.

Another small start up in the middle of nowhere Wisconsin. Seems to be a trend.
The place feels and looks like a cafe/coffee shop meets brew pub. Seating and a bar up front. Open kitchen and brewing area in the back. It was hotter than a crotch in there. Apparently A/C is not something they had a budget for.
Staff was friendly as were the patrons we encountered.
The beer was average at best. They had around 10 beers on tap and we only had 4 of them. So I can't speak for everything in the house. Going on what we had the flavors were a bit weak. I suppose for the area they will do just fine. Not exactly a beer geek hot bed.
Overall yet another start up in a sea of start ups. I wish em luck.

Stopped in on 2/11/12. My impression is that they have only been open for about a month, but the place was quite busy for a Saturday at 3pm.
Five beers were on tap including a pale ale, IPA, heffewiezen, stout and scotch ale. All were quite good. There was a little room for improvment with the heffewiezen, but the others were solid.
The food menu was a little limited but above average, and kudos to sourcing local for the ingredients.
The stmosphere was relaxed. I met the owners/brewer as they were also running the place. They definitely have a welcoming vibe. Worth the drive to Columbus, and I hope to make it back soon.
