Place is just full of any great beer of all styles you can possibly imagine. World class Barreling system and sours really make this brewery pop off.

Pros: World class barrel aging program. Pretty good price on tasters and pints relative to bars in the area.

Cons: For the most part awful bartenders/people that work there. There are a select few that can be okay but the rest are overly arrogant particularly the ones that work the front. Hot and sweaty bar area. Just atrocious in the summer. Little to no air circulation and sticky sticky floors. Food options limited to food trucks. Parking okay but the brewery is right in the vicinity of a police station.

Overall: Get the beer. Get in and get out or have a beer or two and hope you get lucky with a bartender you can tip well and still won't treat you like dirt.
