Nice little stop for those coming from to Ocean City or RB.

Small tasting room with a few stools and a couple of picnic tables outside. 5 beers on tap, with the possibility of bottles of the migration series available for purchase.

Brewing equipment is behind a large window behind the bar. They are very cramped in this facility and obviously looking to expand.

Nice selection of t-shirts, hats, and the like available for sale. No food to speack off, though I can see getting a pizza and eating on one of the outside tables.

Friendly staff. Didn't seem to offer a formal tour, if you are into such things, but the place is so crammed full of equipment I'm not sure one would even be advisable.

This is definitely a brewery worth checking out. Thankfully, their beers are showing up in other locations now (even found some in Charlottesville VA).

Most of the people seem to go to the Public House side to either eat, or sit at the bar. Therefore, the taproom area was not very crowded (only went one time, so not sure if this is typical). All of the year-rounds + seasonals + a couple limited releases. Most beers can be found elsewhere in the state, but there were a few that were very limited. Delicious beer

It has a comfortable vibe, it's not too big or too small. Large windows are nice and let in lots of natural light, though this can be an issue when the sun is shining directly into your eyes, blinding you from looking at your beers. The quality was also good, beer and food-wise. No complaints about service or selection. Pretty solid across the board, though a bit pricey. Not sure why it's not giving me an option to rate food, but their crab dip is some of the best I've ever had.

Beautiful location with great outdoor and indoor space. Service was poor. The waitress did not know what was offered on tap and advised differently from what the bartender had. A bottle release was offered by the brewery but the waitress did no know if the bottle was still available. Was asked to check and forgot and had to be reminded. Have to note that the waitress was working the deck area but nonetheless should have know this info. Would not go back due to the poor service and ok beer.

The best brewery/gastric pub in the state. Incredibly unique menu. Fantastic beer selection. Very knowledgable staff. Restaurant, brewery and tasting room all in one place.
