A: the patio was great. It looked like someone spent a lot of time and effort making this place look special and that time was well spend. Everyone around seemed to be mostly locals kicking back and having a relaxing beer after work. Everyone was happy and chatty.
Q: Outrageous, is probably the best one word description of the quality of this brewing company. I have tried and rated many of the beer this company has to offer and besides grassroots (which I find semi gross) I don’t think I have given very many of their beer below an A-.
Sel: There is no good was of saying this… it sucked. For being maybe without a doubt the best brewing company in Ohio and only having 9 beers on tap is weak. And not only did they only have 9 beers on tap but, 5 of the 9 were year round beer and 2 of the nine were seasonals. All 7 of those you could find in bottles anyways in Ohio and in most good beer stores in the mid-west. Any other bone I have to pick with them is there abv selection. Why are there no beers above 7.5%? I mean that absurd.
Ser: The patio was pretty packed a service on the food was still great. I waited a while to get my second beer but again it was packed so no complaints.
F: The food was excellent. I ordered this grilled chicken sandwich marinated in Dortmunder Gold on a pretzel bun, and it was the bomb. In the previous day was have some anxiety problems for the first time in my life, and was eating basically anything. And this chicken sandwich was like the only thing I ate for like 2 days before and 2 days after, that how good it was. Anyways I also enjoyed how they have suggested beer pairing with their sandwiches.
V: I really unsure because I wasn’t the one paying but it seemed on pair with most breweries as far as prices of food and beer go.
When I was first getting into drinking good beer this was my favorite brewery, and even though I have to say Founders (which when I find some time I defiantly need to visit) has now one me over there will always be a special place in my beer heart for this brewing company.
