My wife and I stopped into The Hideout after a nice dinner and comedy show (Brian Regan). We had never been but my parents live close by so we made the stop. It is small and a little intimidating at first because everyone seems to know each other very well. There was a guitar and vocal duo playing upstairs which sounded pretty good, but a little surprising.

Their beer list was pretty large and had me desiring a lot but I decided on the Coconut Almond Brown and my wife their hard cider. As soon as we stepped to the bar we were helped. The beer was pretty good but nothing to mind blowing, the cider was very good.

After standing around we looked around the place and found two seats and shortly after people began talking to us and sharing how much they love the place. The staff was very friendly as we both got two more beers very promptly as well as some samples. They made it a point to learn our names and where we were from. We didn’t try any of the food, but did notice they allow you to order food from close by restaurants.

I would recommend this place, noting it is small and at first it seems like you may be an outcast, but the staff and regulars are very friendly. Beer has a way of bringing people together.

Went to Hideout Brewing Company a few weeks ago. It really is a little hole in the wall, but it's a pretty good atmosphere, wasn't crazy busy, and had video games & darts upstairs. They have free bags of chips & pretzels around the bar. Bartender was a little rude, but I think that's just the vibe they're going for. I'll definitely go again at some point.

Very unique place. Old video games upstairs and some off the wall beers. Quality isn't up there with founders but not many breweries are. You will definitely wonder if you are heading to the right place. Worth checking out and bombers to go are very reasonably priced. $5-$7 for everything

Awesome place that is a literal hideout. Dive bar with a huge selection of average to below average beer. Really like the low key vibe.
