Visited Sunday - Midday

Atmosphere: Really enjoyed the atmosphere, the ambiance was quite nice. The whole place reminds me of a large tree house. The lighting is somewhat low which makes it intimate. Very rugged or rustic, seems Earth conscious

Service: Beer servings are offered in three sizes 4, 8, and 16 oz servings, although not all offerings are offered in every size. Sat at the bar, nothing really jumped out about the service. Staff was knowledgeable and polite, water was promptly served with my draft.

Selection: This was one of the downsides for me. I understand their brewing rotation/strategy, but it needs to be better planned. When I visited 90% of the taps were saisons. Usually I like to see more variability by a brewery. I wasn't able to enjoy their take on more than two styles, which takes away from the brewery visit.

Overall: I can tell this place has a cult following, even a bit hipster (if I dare use that terminology). I enjoyed my visit and will most likely return (especially given its proximity). I'm hoping next time the brew on tap has a little more diversity.

At a glance (menu and served dishes) the food seems appetizing, looking to indulge if a round two is in my future.

A very out of the way obscure place, tucked in a nice neighborhood with winding backroads this little place pops out also off a main drag that hints at a little charm, while the corner turns to strip mall central.

A real wonderful space. Warm, dark wood and inviting. It is a brewery, and the beers here excel tremendously, with emphasis on hop aromas, and solid saisons. Excellent quality brews made and served, and love the variety of sized pours.

The star of the show though is the bread. It's made with house yeast from the beers, dense but not a brick, crackles nicely under a panini press. House sandwiches are made with this bread such as the house Tired Hands, or even a basic Grilled Cheese. Served with a pickle and a hot mustard punching horseradish dip that will knock you on your ass.

A fantastic place to grab some real tasty brew, and worth it for the trip.
