Cool building, but they only had 5 beers on tap 3 of which were different versions of the same IPA. No stouts, porters, reds. The service was mediocre at best. The beer was nothing special, I bought a growler of their Wheatstone Bridge and it had about a half inch of honey residue on the bottom. I doubt I'll go back or seek out their beers in the future

*I know I reviewed Tin Whiskers previously, but it was deleted for some reason? It was a written review, if rating was a "deviation."*

Clean and comfortable taproom downtown (lots of nearby parking), with all their brewing equipment nestled behind the bar in the same open, high ceiling room. I love it when I can smell the barley in a taproom.

Service was slow considering how dead they were, particularly with two tenders and no lines. Had 6 standards on tap, a couple of infusions and a cask option. Had a flight, and most everything was very middle of the road (I have heard the beer has improved some since they started bottling, however). The barrel shifter was a tasty yet easy-drinking distraction from the rest of the lineup, but even the infusions were one-note. Might revisit if in the area.

Tin Whiskers has kind of a Chipotle-like stainless decor. Everything is in the same room, so you are greeted by brewing smells upon entering. There are a couple large tables with a number of smaller tables plus a bar, which seemed to be adequate for the Friday afternoon traffic. Orders are taken at the bar. I think there were 9-10 options on tap including seasonals, experiments and a cask selection. Of the 6 or so I tried there were a few beers that I thought were quite good (a fruit-infused wheat beer, a dry-hopped cask IPA, and the stout), while the others were pretty drinkable. A buddy stated that in his opinion the beer quality had improved significantly since their opening. As an added bonus there are a couple of good food options nearby. Look forward to going back!

Tin Whiskers definitely exceeded my expectations. Great downtown location and ambience with an epic mural of a robot and attention to detail keeping the electrical theme throughout. You can see the brewing equipment but everything is so open and clean that it feels like a nice sports bar. The beers were reasonably priced and all of them were good! Surprisingly honed in for such a young brewery. Their selection covered the most common varieties, but each was slightly unique and very well-balanced. Short Circuit and Wheat Bridge were my two favorites. Definitely will return again.
