The ambiance is OK, but the place is new and has the industrial feel of the brewery more than that of a pub. I liked it, because I am a homebrewer, but maybe others might not. The outdoor area was nice.
The service was laid back, but the staff were knowledgeable and helpful.
The lineup featured mostly their own brews, and there was a wide range to select from. Backpocket makes very drinkable beers. Event the barleywine was smooth and clean. Don't go looking for something edgy or weird here.
The food was good and fairly priced. Mostly pub food, but the menu was fun and varied.
The brewmaster was very busy when I arrived, but he made time for a wonderful brewery tour. I could tell that he had a million other things going on, but he still made the time to show us around. We spent about an hour with him. Overall it was a very pleasant time. The bar and brewery staff were great. I hope to stop by again the next time I am in town.
