I have been in the old brewery 2015 and 2017. Looking forward to going to the new facility also. Very nice area and town.

Toppling Goliath seems to be in the middle of nowhere but it’s very easy to find using iPhone directions. The new, modern building has adequate parking and outside tables. Inside, there is a store area where beer to go and other items (hats, tee-shirts, openers, etc.) are available. The receipt from this area is itemized. There are multiple tables and booths available in the bar/dining area, as well as tables and conference rooms on the second floor. Rest rooms are clean and adequate. The food was excellent (I had the pork bahn mi and my wife had the house burger). Service was adequate but not stellar, but then we were there about 1600 on a Tuesday. The TVs over the bar were turned down and were not distracting. The only real complaint I have is the poor acoustics. Throughout the entire meal we could hear someone pontificating about something but could neither understand the words nor locate the speaker. Overall, I’ll make a side-trip there again.

18 beers on tap. Tons of seating. Got an area for events. Beer to go. Beer is top notch. If you're anywhere close to Decorah, Iowa, you must stop here.

This is a destination a monument to Toppling Goliath Brewing. It sits outside of the downtown old Decorah tap house by a couple of miles. Its large with outdoor seating and fire pits,Inside is a large two story tap room with a fireplace and a north wood cabin feel. A bar with a kitchen and brew to go cooler right when you walk in. Plenty of seating with a nice wait staff. 15 or so brews on tap with flights available. Very nicely done.

Excellent location and space compared to the original location. I could really tell this brewery I visited years ago was starting to make a large impact on the craft scene. I was very impressed with the spaciousness and high availability of the beers that they offered. I only wish I would have spent more time there than what I did. Really looking forward to going back next year.
