Great place that is conveniently down the street from my office. A much more interesting place to grab a beer than a local bar if you can get by the rough exterior. I had read a number of reviews on Yelp that all complained about the location which is an industrial park with a major construction project going on. Despite the lack of designated parking spaces there are very few "no parking" signs so if you are a little resourceful this really isn't a problem.
Once you get into the taproom you are rewarded - very nice bar area with a great variety of offerings. One thing that might make it more comfortable is a better thought out seating area. I stood at the bar and started with a 4/4 0z flight also grabbed an additional 4 oz taste and a 32 oz growler of my favorite item tasted - their Art 12.
Had a great conversation with some regulars there, a few novices and the bartender - who was one of the owners. As a homebrewer I was as interested in their process and ingredients as I was in taste and the brewer was forthcoming gladly answering all my questions in a very conversational manner - asking as many questions as he answered.
Looks like this could be a regular stop.

I took a trip on 10/11/13 to pick up some bottles and growlers and overall had a great time. The atmosphere inside the tasting room is actually pretty cool. Its a laid back room, and although there are some awkward tables just sitting in the middle of the room, its a cool place to do a flight. The beers were somewhat hit or miss, but I enjoyed most of what I tried. They had 9 or 10 beers on tap available for 4oz or 11oz pours and growlers, along with 6 or 7 of their beers (if I could guess) available in bottles. The staff was great, very friendly and they were happy to answer any questions and just chat about beer.
The big time downside was the location. From what I hear they are going to be moving down the road a ways and hopefully this will fix the issue. There is no parking and the whole area around the brewery is under construction. The actual brewery is inside a sketchy building where there is just a small sign on the wall outside of the door. I opened the door and had to do a double take at the sign by the door because I didn't think I was in the right place. After wandering into the building, wondering if I was going to drink some beer or get stabbed by some cracked out hobo, I found the inside door to the brewery and all was well. Now that I know that the brewery does exist and I know how to get to it, the location is not nearly as bad as the first awkward trip in, but to a newcomer.. its not the most welcoming location.
All in all, I had a great time and look forward to my next trip, and REALLY look forward to their new location with a parking lot
