Visited the Brew Pub on 07/12/2014.
A- This was a Saturday evening and the place was packed, had to wait for a table for about 20 mins. Nice wood and metal decor. Multiple places to see what's on tap and a nice little stage in the back for bands. Everybody visiting and working seemed to really be having a good time.
Q- The place itself was very clean and the beer is always well made.
S- One of the better brewery experiences as far as service goes. A bit annoying having to find a table yourself and you find yourself hovering over a table you think is about to leave, some additional seating would be a great thing. Once seated though there is a server who takes drink and food orders, which very nice to see, something Bell's and Founders doesn't really have.
S- Always a wide variety of ales and lagers and usually several eccentric type flavored beers, as is the Short's way. So pretty much every time you go you're going to get something different.
F- Food was okay. your typical pizza and sandwich type stuff. More variety than Founders and Bell's but still would be nice to get some real entrees. The quality of the pizza was okay, not the best nor the worst and came to the table at surprising speed. They did get our toppings wrong though but it wasn't a big deal and a manager was quick to step in on her own accord and apologize and give us a discount, very nice.
V- Everything was very reasonable for a brewery and they offered several sizes of the beer if you just want to try. I believe there year round offerings are pretty cheap at the brewery compared to what you'd pay at a restaurant.
If you are in the area, make it a point to visit this place at least once, it's definitely one of the best beer destinations in the area.
