I have been wanting to go here for about 2 months and finally pulled the trigger. Really glad I did. They have a pretty good tap selection as someone mentioned below, and it is pretty diverse. Got to try out a couple of beers I haven't had. Unfortunately didn't stay long and have any of the higher ABV offerings because I had to be somewhere shortly. Very good Vietnamese offerings, there are 5 or 6 different Bahn mi offerings, I had the fried pork and my wife had the grilled, asked for extra jalapenos and some pate for mine and that wasn't an issue. Waitress was very helpful in ordering apps, as we wanted to sample what she thought were her best. I will definitely be heading back to spend more time on the patio. I am always depressed when I go to one of these places because I just want something like this in my neck of the woods.

Trophy Brewing

Vibe is eh. Very small - capacity might be 50 people. Really needed some organization as people were just standing and it was unsure if they were waiting for to go orders or for a table. Beer selection is pretty weak - 5-6 of their beers and 2 guest taps. Beer styles were varied and creative. DIPA was fantastic but the others were mediocre. Food is above average but like the beer I bet they take more pride in being 'unique' rather than being 'great'. My scores probably make it look like I didn't enjoy my visit, but I'd go back. They know how to brew great beer, I just wish they had more options and that the rest of the experience was improved.

Love this place. Excellent verandah to sit and watch the view out over the water. Beers on tap are great with a full range of their packaged beers available on tap and some seasonal specials as well. The decor is wooden and rustic. Food was great. We had a family lunch here and found the long tables inside ideal for a large gathering and there was no problem brining the younger child for lunch. Worth a look.

A great venue, big rowdy beer hall, nice food and great beer. A real hub of excitement and a great vibe here. Definitely a place to check out if you are visiting Fremantle.

Stopped in on our last day in Wisconsin to put together a couple of mixed 6's of Wisconsin only beers for friends at home.
Left with nothing more than a sampler 12 of New Glarus.
Staff didn't seem to have time to be bothered, even though the store was nearly empty.
There where numerous empty spaces in the single bottle section which was quite small. Actually saw a much better selection in a BP gas station earlier in the day, but held out for Steve's because of the reviews here.
Oh well, live and learn.

We ate from the restaurant while we stayed there. But we have visited the Goat numerous times for the bar. They carry good beer. More in bottle than on tap. But they have good quality stuff. They have a well stocked bar....even have absinth in a couple of varieties. Service is top notch. Will go back.

Great small-town brewery in an old bank building. There were 8 beers and a cider on when I was there. All beers were solid, true to style. Bartender was super knowledgeable, and friendly. Been open roughly a year, and surpassed my expectations. Great place.

Stopped in on a fishing trip and had beer n eats. Overall a great place. Good selection of beers on tap and in bottle plus wine and spirits. Had local music entertainment playing tunes. Good setup and food was good. Not overpriced and worth the stop if you are in the neighborhood.

MashCraft Brewing

in Greenwood, Indiana

4.18/5  rDev -1.9% | Avg: 4.26
vibe: 3.75 | quality: 4 | service: 4.5 | selection: 4.25

I stopped by Mashcraft's taproom late on a Sunday afternoon. The Colts game had just ended, and there was not another customer in the place when I walked in, although several growler fill customers showed up while I was there. They are located in a nondescript small strip mall, easy to find about five miles south of the Indy beltway.

There were 11 Mashcraft brews on tap on the day I visited, plus a handful of guest taps. The bartender was very helpful, greeted me right away and asked me what kind of beer I liked. I said "robust flavored," and he quickly poured me three decent sized samples. He seemed knowledgeable about the beers, which is always a good sign! I filled two howlers (bullets, as they are called in the Indianapolis area) with the black IPA and the regular IPA to take back to Ohio with me.

The layout inside was very conducive to socializing and enjoying the beer. Picnic style tables are the primary seating. The bar itself was surprisingly small, and there were only about 4 bar stools (all were taken) when I visited. It's almost like they want you to go sit at a picnic table and mingle.

If I lived in the area, I would definitely make this a regular stop on my beer circuit. Mashcraft has been getting quite a buzz since they opened, and I have high hopes for some really great beers coming from this team. Bottom line: definitely worth a visit if you are in the Indy area and have have transportation.

Decent atmosphere. The waitress on staff the night I went seemed very pre-occupied with conversing with other customers. It took far too long for me to get a beer (15-20 minutes) which seems ridiculous to me. Decent beer, especially for a place that started in a business park. I might go back again, but only because it is the nearest brewery to my job. Overall pretty good beer, but not the greatest service.

Really liked this place - a must visit if you're in the DC area, especially for fans of sour beers. All beers can be tried in a 4oz, or larger pour. Wide variety in the restaurant, with a few different goodies in the tasting room, which Im told is relatively new. Several of the beers are also bottled to go.

Bartenders were very friendly and knowledgeable.

I went there on Hurricane Joaquin weekend. I tried all their samples available (just a taste) and had three big glass servings of Brooklyn 2, Blast! and Brooklyn Brown Ale. The place is run very well and it is very lively. Worth a trip!

Incredible spot. Really quality food and service. You would never know about this spot from the side of the road. Looks like a little shack but it is awesome. Really great local draft list. Expansive bottle and can list. Food is really good as well. A must stop.

The beers are decent and the food is better. None of the beers screamed amazing...but the pizza a and bacon flight more than made up for it. The place itself is fairly non-descript. The service was friendly enough. The selection was good....6 beers available and sandwiches and pizzas to chose from. Also a good snack menu. Certainly worth a visit.

Could be the best craft beer place on King Street in Old Town. My only warning - Happy Hour applies only If you are sitting/standing in the bar area. Eat and order in the dining area, and it's full price.

The best selection in the area. Service is good but it depends on individual taste. The atmosphere is basically a grocery store with a gigantic selection. Prices are reasonable but hard to compare since they have such a large selection. The NW Columbus location has a much larger refrigerated section.

in Vienna, Virginia

3.78/5  rDev -5.5% | Avg: 4
vibe: 4 | quality: 3.75 | service: 4 | selection: 4 | food: 2.5

At the end of a dead end road in an industrial park, the Caboose can be hard to find if you're driving there. By bicycle, it's hard to miss - it's along the W.O.&D. Trail, about a half mile north of downtown Vienna.

The restaurant/brew pub is nice inside - much better than the typical industrial park brewery. There is outdoor seating, too.

10 beers were offered, available in 1/2 pints, pints ($6) and 4-beer flights ($10). There six beers we tried were all good representatives of their style, but none strayed far from the style. The food is good - farm to table - but overpriced. And no burgers were on the lunch menu.

There is more than one branch of legends, I visited the branch near the lake. Nice and clean with a nice view of the lake. Expensive by local standards. 2 beers on available both are pretty average. Food is poor and expensive.
