An interesting place, right near downtown and walkable from our hotel.
They appear to be a German inspired brewpub, beer hall and all around facility. The decor was pretty cool, and they seemed to be doing some remodeling, but that did not affect the experience.
The beer were all German. I had two and both were good, and very well done.
The food was prepared well. I am not sure how much of it was sourced from local farms. It did taste good and came out of the kitchen in a short amount of time.
Definitely a place worth visiting. Especially since I know of only one other craft brewery to be German or Czech inspired.

Have been at Exile a few times. Had their lunch a while back, and was very pleased. I had the French Dip and it was fantasic and well prepared! I already knew that the beer is very well brewed. I have came here a couple of times just to sit at the bar and have a beer or two, and it's worth it. If you enjoy German brews, you will love Exile. The atmosphere here is great in my opinion. There hardly is ever any immature 21 year olds acting dumb at the bar, so the atmosphere is nice and laid back. I recommend this place to everyone. Great food, great beer, great building. Give it a try!
