Nice place in Auburn, CA...I'm a hazebro so Knee Deep Brewing has never been on the radar...but, it is a nice place to have some brews with friends. Customer service is great!

It’s little more than a big warehouse in an industrial park with picnic tables inside, but it’s a cool big wearhouse in an industrial park with picnic tables inside because it has a ton of good beer!

An Auburn staple. Great award winning IPA line up with many rotating styles to boot. Set in a large warehouse right there in the thick of the operating brewery. Always a food truck outside with the small outdoor area. Definitely a brewery to hit if in Auburn.

This place seems to be getting a little small for the crowds now. On the weekends it is hard to find a place to sit and the line for beer can get pretty long. The service the day I was there was a little slow. With all that said I would still recommend a trip because they have a ton of great beers on tap, including some that are hard to find in stores.

Stopped by on a rainy Sunday. There is a nice outdoor seating area to hang out, but being inside where it was dry was nice. The atmosphere is very relaxed, plus family and dog friendly, with board games and corn hole available. I always love being able to really see where the beer comes from so looking right in on the brewhouse, fermenters, and bottling line was cool. The staff was super friendly and helpful. Knee Deep is known for their hoppy beers so they tend to dominate the options, but there are other styles available. Pours are all very reasonably priced and they offer growler fills and crowlers to go. On top of all that they regularly have awesome local food trucks out front. I will definitely be back.

Selection is mostly hoppy beers. Specifically double and triple IPAs for the most part. Only fill growlers of their style (Flip Top), not necessarily their label.

Gets incredibly hot in the summer, even had to leave half a pint one time because my girl was about to have heat stroke.

They are doing it right. They have all the ingredients to be a major player in the beer world. The atmosphere is top notch, the room is big and roomy, airy with all the right touches. The beer, well thats a different story. You must like extremely hoppy beers, or else you won't find anything to drink. Variety, not their strong suit. But if you love hoppy beer, you will be very happy. Where else can you get 4 or more 100+ ibu beers? If tasting multiple hop varieties in IPA beer this is your place. Come to auburn, you won't be disappointed.

Its pretty awesome to drink your flight around the fermentation tanks that your beer was in. great music and a nice vibe. Might be a little pricey on the growlers but no one forces you to buy one.

Great little brewery/taphouse. Famous for their super hoppy 2x and 3x IPAS. Unique flavors from this underrated place. Poised to hit the main stream soon.

Knee deep is a great brewery, they're real hop heads here, with only two beers that arent ipa's be prepared for high ABV and High IBU. You'll be sure to find activity around here, fridays and saturdays they do food trucks, and are always busy.

I have visited Knee Deep's Taproom a few times and will definitely be back. A very low key, family friendly environment with a highly informative and friendly staff. There's a wonderful feeling, that might enhance the enjoyment of the brews, that comes from admiring the small brewery's crew finishing up their day around the tanks and equipment. There are usually just as many experimental brews on tap as there are year-rounds.

The house has a few bar type games, as well as board games. Overall plenty of hops and fun to be had.

Very chill atmosphere, and cool setting. There are a bunch of picnic tables throughout the taproom area where you can play games and gaze upon the brew tanks on the other side of the building. Staff is friendly, and the beer is very reasonable. They have food trucks Thurs-Sun. Be sure to bring a DD if you plan on sampling.. heavily.. because most of their beers are wicked boozey! If you're at all in the Sacramento area and love hops, check out Knee Deep.
