Love the atmosphere. The hammered copper bar is awesome in a country way...
The owner is awesome to hang with, he's hilarious..
The beer choices are amazing..
The Scottish ale is decidedly delicious. I need to stop now. But I'll be back many times.

The brewery has a dive bar type atmosphere and clientele. You feel like you're at a local dive bar but no PBR on tab. Beers are average, like C average. I think we have here a few home brewers who are trying their best but didn't bother to look into different styles than what they liked and just made a few things that all Tasted similar and hoped no one would notice. Several beers taste nothing like the style advertised. I know sometimes a IPA will be said as a IIPA, or whatever. Their IIPA tasted like an Oktoberfest. Just need to go back at the drawing board before I would come back.

Well I guess its time for someone to check in on this place. The reviews have been sketchy and sparse in recent years. No one has rated this place in 2015. Well much hasn't changed. I didn't notice anything unsettling dirty. However, I had just left New Holland and Brewery Vivant. And how would you say, "I guess I left my inspector hat in the van." They did let my dog in and were more than happy to bring him a bowl of water. That was pretty darn nice. We had a couple of the HopKnockers. They were pretty harsh on the back end. But not bad for someone looking for one last beer of the evening on your way back to the Red Woof Inn. They are very close to each other. Not a bad place to stay on a beer tour of GR if you are bringing a pet. I think it was $125 for the night. Overall, not bad, not great. Just leave your expectations at the door. Ping Pong, Waylon Jennings on the juke box, popcorn and beer; In some circles it doesn't get much better than that.

This was the absolute worse experience I have ever had at a brewery. First off the place is absolutely filthy on the inside and it honestly feels like if a health inspector would come around that he would either be paid off or the place would be closed down until they meet certain requirements. I went around lunch time on a Saturday and there was hardly anyone in the place, the tables were dirty and the linoleum floor was dirty and stained. The bartender acted like I was inconveniencing her by asking for a beer. I visited the brewery with 3 friends and we each got a different beer. One of the beers had a medicinal sour flavor and was definitely infected. My other buddy got their cream ale which was very generic and had few redeeming qualities. I had the bone crusher stout which was mediocre and had a burnt flavor to it. The bone crusher was the best of the group and it was nothing I would re-order. I will not be returning to this brewery and I will not be recommending their beer to anyone. Very disappointing beer and very disappointing experience.
