You come here for the beer, of course--one of those pilgrimage type of places. And overall the beer is of course very good, and some are exceptional. The atmosphere is average, but the place is filled mostly with people who appreciate good beer, which helps. The beer menu boards list each beer not only with ABV, but with IBU as well which is pretty cool.
Our server was really nice and walked us through the production area even though someone official wasn't there to give us a "real" tour.
I love that they offer a full sampler tray of their beers, though their range is so big, it is pretty hard to really appreciate how good most brews are if you are tasting shot glass after shot glass.
For food, the menu is pizza heavy, though I have not tried any (cow cheese isn't a pleasant experience for me I'm afraid). I have had the wings to eat, which were good (I went pretty spicy... and they were). The pizza may very well be very good (nothing wrong with doing something well and sticking to it), but I have to give an average rating based on my experience and relatively limited menu...
