4.04/5  rDev -6.7%

On our way to the Winter beer fest in GR we stopped at all the pertinent places. This was our first stop.

Pretty much had the usual brew pub setting. Huge open space. Moderately sized bar. Small seating area in front of the bar and a balcony wiht more tables. A fairly large stage for such a small place but I like it loud so I wouldn't complain.

All the usual Bell's suspects were on tap. Along with some special pub only offerings. I opted for one of the latter. My stout was served ice cold and poured all the way to the top of the glass. Allowing for no head and some serious hand warming.

The food looked decent from what I saw but we didn't eat so I can't comment on it.

Overall a bit underwhelming considering the legendary status of the brewery. Nice place but I wouldn't make it a must stop on my next journey out there.
