Cool place here. Really hidden, good name. Small, two levels with the bar on the bottom level and a foosball table, dartboard, and big screen on the second level. 5 beers offered, 3 wines, and a mead. Selection when I came included an IPA, Pils, ESB, Red, and a Stout. The Stout was the best with the Red being number 2 for me. The others were unique but still decent. The mead was quite dry but I liked sipping on it. The brewer/owner/bartender was a really cool guy and quite good at what he does. I'm looking forward to more of their offerings. Definitely worth checking out. Also, its right next to a hot tub place. A few beers then a tub, sounds like a relaxing night to me ;-)

Here's my take on the beers they offer, no notes were taken so no reviews yet
ESB-too blueberry tasting for me, gets annoying
Red-sweet but very good, I liked it a lot
Stout-Awesome roasty and dry, great beer
Porter-Thinner, chocolatey but not that great
Weizen-yeasty and funky fruity flavor
IPA-good, odd color but nice fruityness as well, gets old after a pint
Pilsner-really good hop strike, i liked their pils a lot

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.
