Dropped in with a friend to experience our first batch of home brew. Was rather blown away by the variety of beer that could be made. Very helpful staff and good service.

Our beer was ready in two weeks. I opted for the "Extreme Pilsner", and my friend for the Belgian style "Brown". I must say I was impressed with both beers, the Brown one being wicked strong.

The bottling process between us only took about 30 minutes. I recommend bottling with somebody, it will cut your time in half at least.

Thanks to the boys at Fermentations.

Good times, great beer.

I decided to make a beer at this brew on premises establishment after hearing a lot of good things about it.

I made a batch of Imperial Stout. It ended filling 36 bombers. The staff was pretty knowledgable and very helpful. The consultation was very thorough and the reciple was formulated exactly the way I wanted. A batch of the Imperial stout recipe I based mine on was $67. They only charged me $5 for my extra ingredients, a huge amount of hops and extra black malt. I naively bought 24 new bombers which were a ripoff at $20.

The total was about $95 which is a good deal for the fantastic beer I got to enjoy. Anyways, two weeks after the consultation I was back with a friend for bottling. The staff were very helpful and guided us through the whole process from sanitizing to capping.

The finished product was essentially a black double IPA. Apparently it weighed in at 120 IBUs and 9% ABV. The Ken, the brewer said hes never used so many hops in one beer (Cascade and I believe Northern brewer). Needless to say I was VERY satisfied.

I brewed mine 6 months ago at the Mount Pleasant location which has since closed. Im down to 3 bottles and I forgot to review this place. Sad that its gone, but at least the main store is still open, Ill definitely be going there to brew another batch. Maybe an Imperial Pilsner.

I used to live right near this fine brewing establishment and for the several months I lived there I would walk by it and say to myself "Y'know, I should probably go in and check it out." After a year... I finally did. This is a great friendly place, with very knowledgeable (an award winning) staff and a simple and high quality process for brewing. The wort is pre-made, but it is good stuff and there are all sorts of things you can add. You can go in with a recipe and they'll help you make it, I made a Dunkel Weizen, and I wasn't expecting such a good one to be made. I highly recommend this place.
