One of the first brewpubs I fell in love with.

It's a great out of the way adventure to find.

The atmosphere seemed to scare my wife at first, but then we saw plenty of sweatshirt clad college students making their way to the front door.

It was packed on friday at 5pm. Standing Room Only! We made our way to the bar and the lady next to us helped us get an order of beer.

The inside decorations of beer club mugs were phenomenal. The only thing I regret is that we didn't have time to visit the patio outside.

The service was good, the people were friendly and the beer was fantastic! We look forward to going back for one of their festivals!

Seems small and unassuming which is a good thing. Great comfortable place for lunch.

Lacking in corporate sterility, this brewery is what you love about DIY beer making. Stage featuring roots music and beer that hasn't acquiesced to offering only "safe" beer. Will raise the bar for every other tasting room you ever settle into.

Members of the mug club for years, several superb brews. Weakness clearly has been food. Need bigger better kitchen (almost done we hear) . Owners are sincere long term brewers not late players to the game. Enjoy!
