Had a good time yesterday. Zev is the master brewer and runs the place professionally from day one. Being a town, there is parking available. The place is sizable and able to accommodate lots of tasters out there. It is organized, clean, and reasonable priced beer. Being a mid-afternoon, he was able to do a couple of hand bottle fills. The top highlight of course is the beer itself. Seeing that I had 5 beers that were B/B+ for a spanking new place, and such places normally improve as they work through multiple batches of the recipes, I am impressed. He is working with some funk and brett on some beers, different hops and ingredients. Worth going out of your way for. The computer maps and GPS systems have you go up the 81 and the 90 and don't bother with a few twists and turns to get out here, but being a veteran driver of heading out to NYC, Brooklyn, and Philly myself, you can get here on fine roads and not lose any time, plus pay less tolls.

The North Brewery isn't your average waterhole for those who prefer "safe" brews. While Zach (owner) and Kyle (brewer) do make excellent "safe" brews, their true area of excellence is in their ability to create unique, one of a kind brews. Zach attempts to brew roughly 140-different brews a year; the taps rotate almost daily. Because the North is still young, they're still honing in on their recipes which only adds to the enjoyment. Locals like myself get to taste the tweaks between batches while Kyle and Zach explain what they changed and if they thought it was better or worse than last time. The North also stocks various hops, grains, malts and equipment for homebrewers. Zach and Kyle are very approachable and patient with homebrewing amateurs like myself who ask non-stop questions.
The North will be undergoing an upgrade in the coming months to increase their barrel system and bar space. My rating of the atmosphere will be subject to change after this occurs.
