About unique as you can get. It is converted out of an old hardware store and most of the brewery (including the stunning bar) is handcrafted. In putting this place together they managed to blend class with an eclectic mix of furniture and decorating that creates a unique atmosphere and appearance.
There were a lot of beers on tap and they also had about 20 different beers in bottles available. The most notable was a set of 13 Imperial beers with varying degrees of craziness including Peaches and Cream and a Bloody Mary Beer.
The food menu seemed a little uninviting as I am a plain eater. That said everything I tried was exceptional. I especially liked the Artichoke Pesto Dip, the Pizzas and the soups. I belive they are in transition a little right now and are expanding the kitchens out later in the year.
The beers are great and what a variety. There are the favorite IPA's of course but then a varying mix of all sorts of beers. A good one was the Soft Parade which was a fruity beer that finished a little dry like champagne. There was no wine or liqour which was a small problem with some people in the party although everyone found something they liked.
The brewery is somewhat divided into two halves. The pub side and the stage. The stage side is raised on a beautiful stone stage that gives great accoustics throughout the building. There seems to be live bands most weekends and a lot of weeknights in the summer.
A community feel that sucked out my stress out of me. I want to be there now!
