I would give this a 4.5 -4.75. FW has always impressed me as a well run outfit, having attended several new bottle releases over the past year. I'm not a local boy, so no bias in that regards, they just go bigger and better than most. Plenty of parking on premises, or on the street. Nice check in area and bar area whilst waiting. two separate seated areas, although I've never sat in the area left of the bar/entrance. This area seems more casual than the larger seated area to the right and behind the check-in desk. Small but ample merchandise area incl reg beer offerings. The tasting room has their rarer beer stock. Tasting room is actually divided into two parts, depending on the functions that may be running. High ceiling for affect in the larger restaurant area. The atmosphere in general is always great, load and busy during main meal times. Knowledgeable staff, esp when it comes to the beer, as you would expect. Professional and polite staff. Bathrooms are clean and functional. I like the tasting room here better than stone, just for the privacy, but this does lack outdoor dining options, and given the great weather in the area, not sure why that may be. Classy place overall, in a well-healed area. a must visit if in the area. Hope this helps. Cheers.

The food is above average and though a bit pricey. I haven't had anything bad off of the menu yet. Firestone wine is always a good choice, though they have a good selection of other brands. The beer is always great, of course.

The staff goes above and beyond to make sure you get your money's worth.

**Barrelworks is an across the board 5.00. My only complaint about it is that I wish they were open more often than a few hours on the weekend.
