Visited 3 weeks after opening. It became apparent upon walking in, that they took notes from their former Founders brewing past and copied many of Founders qualities...seemed like a copy cat.

Tried a flight of the beers and 2 pints...average to below average. Their imperial stout was much below any expectations of an imperial stout such as Founders Imp Stout, Dark Horse, or Expedition Stout.

The place was packed, but I would estimate 90% of the people that were there the night I was there, would be just as happy with a Blue Moon as they would a high quality craft beer.

With so many solid offerings in the area with a much better atmosphere, menu, and locale, once is enough for me...unless, they really ramp it up. I overheard someone while I was there say, "I love this Strong Ale, it really tastes like Two-Hearted Ale". If that doesn't speak volumes to the low quality of the beers, I don't know what does.

Love the atmosphere. Love the food.

Concerned about the beer, however, as their top-rated (check the retired ratings) beers continue to disappear off the menu.

Know that the talented brewer that came up with Malted Milk Ball is gone and I think it's starting to show, unfortunately. Thinking the job is too big for the gentlemen who replaced him as I can't find a single beer that I would consider above average on their current menu.

Hope the Lil' Griz and Black Goats of the world eventually return, but I'm not holding my breath. Was a once-a-week customer due to their good food and quality service, but I'm jumping off the ship early before it goes down -- that's where it's heading.

First time here on 12/13/14... great entrance, very large and open area for beer consumption. Really liked the decor and everything very clean. Staff all very nice, not as knowledgeable about their products as some places, but knew enough for most people. Was little bummed out as they were out of a beer listed on their website (supposedly updated that morning), but when I got there I was told that had run out 3 days prior (it was their malted milk stout). Again really enjoyed time spent here, would recommend, but if looking for a particular beer you might want to call ahead to be on safe side that it's on tap.
