Tucked away on an unassuming side street next to several large apartment complexes bordering a lake is a small, unassuming brewery called The Hideout. I rolled up one chilly Saturday afternoon and found the place mostly deserted. There are two floors to the building. The first has the taps and the bar sort of in the middle, with several tables as you move around the outside of the room. Upstairs are several large screen TVs, a shuffleboard table and a couple of dart boards. Outside there is filled in swimming pool with horseshoes. This place is calm, relaxed and a great place to relax and enjoy a beer with friends.

Though there are some food items on the menu, my girlfriend and I did not partake, as we had just come from lunch. Instead, we focused on the beer. There were a lot of options that day and we got through two full samplers of six beers each. They’re all solid brews with many unique, experimental styles, like beer aged in wine barrels. The standard styles are quite good, with the stouts being the best offerings of the house. Though nothing blew me away, it seems like the type of place you can go to over and over again, but still find something new to try each time.

I don’t believe that they do service to the tables, but the bartenders are quick and efficient, and never leave you empty for long.

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.
