stopped recently on a Sunday afternoon, crowded but still lots of seats and tables available.
Hard to find as everyone has said.

The 4 beers we tried were solid, the stout and IPA were really good.

we sat outside, it's a great place to hang out and relax.

they had a food truck when we were there

Drake's Barrel House is great. It is probably the most chill environment you could ask for at a brew house... or should I say warehouse. By all accounts, they have taken their barreling house, added a bar and a few fridges to it, stood up a few extra barrels to serve as tables, and opened it up to the public. And, most importantly, the concept works great!

Drake's has a number of great beers in stores for purchase, but none of them hold a candle to what you can get on tap at the barrel house. They are not only very experimental (or should I say ex-beer-amental), but they maintain their high standards of quality around everything they brew as well. What you get are some non-traditional barrel-aged taste explosions.

The downside is food. There are a few snack items (goldfish, nuts, etc), but for the most part, you have to rely on the presence of a food truck. Either way, be prepared to get your calories from the delicious brews.

If you want to relax and try some amazing rare (or super hoppy) stuff, pull up a picnic table at Drake's.
