They also do not have heat (at least it felt pretty cold to me) in the winter, though that did not seem to disturb the large crowd that showed up on a frigid day in their winter coats. The "taproom" is basically just an open area adjacent to the tanks, bags of malt, etc. Really just drinking beer IN the brewery. The neighborhood is a seedy looking industrial area, but is close to some very up and coming residential areas, so probably safer than it looks. They specialize in rye beers, commons, etc so if your tastes match that, the selection is not bad. Service was fine, considering the crowd.

The beer is very good, the location isn't

My wife and I stopped in on a Friday evening (open 5-8pm). It was very quiet. Important to note that their 1-year anniversary event was the next day, so I am sure that led to people not stopping in back to back days.

There is plenty of street parking and overall the facility is big, but the "taproom" area is very small. With the passage of the new law allowing breweries to sell beer on premise, there is a plan to expand.

They had 4 beers on tap (but space for more) and also sold bottles. They sold samples, half-pints, and full pints. They also do growler fills. They have a flight deal ($8) for samples of four beers and then a half-pint of the one you wanted again. Bartenders are super nice, knowledgeable, willing to share insight into the brewery.

Warning, there is no A/C, so if it is a warm day, it will be hot in there.

Overall, we will definitely be back to try new stuff. They have a limited amount of beers out right now, with good distribution in the city, so until that expands to a point that I can't get certain beers at a local bar, growler sales won't motivate me to visit.
