This place is practically hidden, from me at least. After spotting the parking lot (which is across the street), I had to hunt for which building it was in. After spotting the sign and entering the building, it still felt like I was in the wrong place for some reason.
After climbing something like three floors, we finally entered the vast large open room. Beer garden style table and benches, brewing equipment, kegs. Cornhole boards, and ping pong tables. Everything is in one giant open room with a high ceiling and large roof skylights throughout. You would think with all that space, a larger bar would have been built. It was a Saturday, so there were quite a few people and a line seemed to always be at the bar.
It was a little hot it being summertime with apparently no a/c. I was fine, but the wife wasn't as happy. Only big ass fans above for cooling that I could see.
Beers were pretty decent. I enjoyed the Fiction Belgian pale ale the most (which I left with a crowler). They have large and small growlers for take out. As well as crowlers. I also seen pretzels for purchase, as well as wine for friends you bring that may not be beer drinkers.

The brewery is located on the third floor of an old warehouse, like a defunct papermill or something. Everything is wide open: brewing equipment is out on the floor next to tables a la beer garden style, a corner bar and televisions. It's cool that you can see everything no matter where you're at. And the place is huge, it's daunting and spectacular.

Rhinegeist beer is good, not quite great. They usually always have some session offering on tap and a high gravity or two if you're lucky. Their Truth IPA is my favorite year round beer. Saber Tooth Tiger DIPA is their best beer overall, in my opinion. They don't serve any food but they welcome outside food.

They have so much room up there that they hold sporting events like whiffleball, pretty cool. There are ping pong tables and cornhole boards set up if you're so inclined, as well.

Go for the beer, which is good enough, but love the place. Rhinegeist is a must stop if only for the venue.
