Been to this place twice. It is a small but pretty friendly place that has a few snack type foods to go with your beer and outside food is allowed in the place. I tried a sampler of their 5 flagship or all year round beers on my first visit. The bartender told me all about the place which was really cool. I do not remember the name of most beers i tried but one I really like was their 45th Parallel IPA which is 6.5% ABV and was very hoppy. The second time went their tried 4 beers on their one year anniversary and they had three fruity beers which I thought were too sweet for me but they were good for being fruit beers, but the double 45th parallel way really good and hoppy and could hardly tell it had 10.5% ABV. Not a bad place but doubt I will go here often, but when I do I most likely will drink a 45th Parallel.

This was stop #6 on a week-long pub crawl for my wife and I. This brewery is located just at the south edge of the main downtown area, and is situated in a stand-alone storefront setting among other commercial businesses. Our visit here was just to try the beers. This was actually a second-chance visit because the previous time that we were here was shortly after they opened, and the beers were not very good. (We attributed the bad beers to this being a new brewery, and no BA review was completed with the hopes that things would get better.)

Unfortunately, things have not gotten better. There were 7 beers available at the time of our visit, so we ordered a sampler flight to try them all. We gave two beers a C grade, three a C minus grade, and 4 of them a D grade. All but one of them had almost no carbonation, and the one that had some was barely acceptable. (I have to wonder if the lack of carbonation was a factor in our taste experience, but my beer knowledge tells me ‘probably not.’

As mentioned above, this was our second visit to this brewpub, and I had hoped that we would experience an improvement that would be consistent with some favorable comments and ratings that I’ve read about this place, but we were disappointed. We won’t be going back again.
