Stop #417 on my world brewery tour.

Wednesday afternoon around 4:30. Sat at the bar with two other guys who seemed to be regulars.

Did two flights which covered all the beers.

Five Rivers Pale Ale
Imperial Orange Cream IPA
Practice Yoga Session IPA
Gem City Ruby Amber
Black Tonic Stout
Dank Dunkel Dark Wheat
ISO-Heaven IPA
Abby Belgian Blonde
Porn or Pawn Pepper Pale Ale

All the beers except for the stout were very well done. The stout was a bit thin for style. Enjoyed the pepper pale ale and it's perfect, balanced heat. The amber, which I would usually avoid as a pint, was very well done for the style. Clean with a firm malt backbone.

Old rehabbed building (former pawn shop) in a historic and artsy area of downtown.

The brewery was "custom" built by a local fabricator who I suspect was not a specialist in brewing equipment. It was probably the most unusual hot-side set up I've seen.

Well worth the visit and I look forward to return trips as I pass through Dayton.

This place was a very pleasant surprise for Dayton OH. In a seemingly trendy neighborhood they are located in an nicely updated older building with character. There is plenty of parking and the taproom is reasonably spacious. Service was good, but it wasn't exactly crowded on a Sunday afternoon, orders at the bar only as far as I could tell. They had about 12 beers on tap and all were solid with a few that were very good. I wasn't necessarily expecting much but this place turned out to be someplace I would go out of my way to visit any time I am in Dayton. When it comes to unknown local places I find that most fall into two categories, the ones that know what they are doing/ understand the modern beer scene, and the ones who have absolutely no clue. These guys definitely know what they are doing.

I shared a few beers with my friends that I met down there. Two of them I quick rated, the other one ( J.O.T.S. Belgian Imperial IPA) was actually probably my favorite. I will tell you the urban vibe was nice to experience in the once vital downtown Dayton. Perhaps it is on its way back to the social gathering place it used to be and Toxic is helping that out. At certain parts of the night (10 pm and later) the bar was 3 to 5 deep waiting to try their brews. The service however was educated, fast and friendly. We will definitely be back!

I was looking for somewhere to go while visiting family in Dayton. Found this place downtown and enjoyed the laid back atmosphere. I had two beers, the 5th St. Wheat I rated and one more I didn't. The beer was ok. The service however was quick and friendly. I bought a glass at a reasonable price and had a good time.
