In a converted gas station, just a block or two from the Mississippi River....nice out door space in front with picnic tables, bring you own food in, enjoy the sun and some better then decent beers...I enjoyed the fun and casual vibe here...I'd be back for a visit next time I'm in the area...worth a visit for a relaxing good time

Small establishment with the majority of its seating outside on wooden benches. It's their brews that are the showcase, but the real treat here is the great location with a beautiful view of the nearby dam and drawbridge.

My favorite local place. Great vibe with a great patio. Very nice BT's. Their Golden Keg events are a blast. They are tapping of new beers and the first keg is free. Great 1/2 price growlers on Sundays and Mondays. Not top tier beer, but they try. Fresh beer because close to home. Dog friendly with lots of bikers. Have a coupon that they print locally in which carry out even cheaper. Redband stout is their best!

Definitely the best of the Quad City area breweries. Patio is great during the summer -- dog friendly, lots of places to sit, extra tap island for busy days. No food service but several local places will deliver. Friendly staff and patrons.

Good variety of seasonal brews and standards. Big fan of the Golden Ale and the 312 Pale.

Tip: If the Government Bridge swing span is open tap beers are 1/2 off.

The others have pretty accurately described the place. I think that I visited on a night in the middle of the week, so there was not a lot of people, which is ok with me. It may have been close to closing time. The bartender was friendly and knew what she was talking about. There was also a couple of refrigerators for carry out, which is nice, especially for out-of-towners looking to sample the local brew. I don't recall any music being played. If I am ever back, I am sure that I will stop by.
