Love the atmosphere, especially when they have a band in there playing.

Quality, all their beers are consistent in quality and taste, that is on their regular beers, not their seasonal beers which can very from year to year (Cold Mountain for example) or their special brews that pop up from time to time.

Service, the bar staff is terrific, when it gets crowded they will usually put up taps around the warehouse area. The owner is always there walking around talking to the patrons.

Selection, I've never had an issue finding something to enjoy while there beer wise.

Food trucks are usually there out front.

Pricing is in line with other breweries in the area. I also respect that the Brewery closes early, so they don't compete with all of the downtown night spots that also sell their product. Looking out for the little guy gets two thumbs up in my book.

One of my all time favorite breweries!

vibe: 3.25 | quality: 3.5 | service: 2.75 | selection: 3.75

Atmosphere: a big open warehouse with tables set up throughout. Kind of dull deco. They just seem to want to pack people in. I like breweries to be a bit more personal

Quality: I tried a flight and a couple of pints 8 beers. They varied from bad to good. Maybe one beer that was very good. Most were pretty good

Service: a long line and a small bar for how much seating they have.

Selection: they seem to put up a good variety but not many seem exceptionally crafted

Overall: the brewery seems more invested in growth and numbers but lacks the care in each beer. I would like a bit more of a personal experience with my beer and brewery

This is a fav place to visit when in the Ashe. The expanded taproom means lots of space for friends or other beer drinking stranger-to-become-friends. The atmosphere is low key, but they offer up live music, beer flights, and some special taproom only brews for the patrons. Brewery tours are always cool. Great selection of merch to buy before you leave as well. Oh, and the beers are pretty good too.

Out on the fringe of town - huge interior with a stage setup for live entertainment.

We visited in between christmas and new years and the place was packed (90% tourists, at least). There was a large brewery tour commencing and almost everyone was drinking those blasted samplers.

Having had every release a few thousand times prior, opted for one of the 3 brewery exclusives - barrel aged cherry black mocha stout. Pretty disappointing - not a lot of barrel.

Really kind of hectic and too touristy of a vibe to really justify a return visit, unless there was something special on tap.
