4.2/5  rDev +7.1%
vibe: 4.5 | quality: 4 | service: 4.5 | selection: 4

The atmosphere wasn't flashy, but it worked. There's a nice bar area on the main floor, seating upstairs and an outdoor area that overlooks something of an overgrown pool. It sounds funny, but somehow they pull it off (there used to be a hot-tub place next door). I'd call it cozy. Somehow the way it's off the beaten path makes for a better atmosphere in this instance.

The beer was quite good. I had an ESB that was spot on and a very drinkable IPA that was served on a Nitro tap.

Service was great. The bartender really knew her beers, gave honest opinions, and was around for refills as often as possible. It started to get busy by the time we left, so she wasn't around as often as I may have liked, but it looked as if she was the only one working and she did a fine job.

Selection was quite good for a brewpub. There was a wide range of styles including seasonal selections.

Food wasn't really available on site. I more than appreciated the free popcorn and you're allowed to bring in outside food or order delivery from other restaurants. That's a pretty nice policy in my book.

Value was good. Full pints were under $4.00 during happy hour. I was able to enjoy a few while still coming out under 10 bucks for the evening.

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.
