Brewery is a converted auto repair shop, with pub tasting room in adjacent building. Place is played out kinda weird with 2 bars and dining rooms. More than a dozen beers on tap, the 2 I had were good. Friendly server. Food was tasty, but also pricey.

Sun up has a nice, small taproom-type vibe. There's seating for about 8 at the main bar and about 7-10 booths with larger tables outside and another bar adjacent to the patio for overflow which offers opportunities to speak to the brewers occassionally. Bartenders are very friendly as well as the regulars. The beer selection is somewhat limited but tasty. The food is so-so. They also make an excellent root beer worth trying.

SunUp has two small bars, one classic brewery bar with view of the brewery through glass, the other rather midwestern in feel, with primarily southwestern menu items. The selection of SunUp beer in draft is broad, and the primary draw, White Russian Imperial Stout, is unusually but wisely available year-round. A few canned beers are available for take-away.

White russian is an amazing imperial stout! Creamy chocolate with a touch of espresso in the finish.

Meso Happy IPA and Hair of the Monk with Cherries Belgian Trippel were awesome.

I have been to Sun Up a couple times and I went last night with my friend and DD with the idea of writing a review. This place is 30 miles away and worth the trip.

A: I like this place. It reminds me of a mom and pop place when you walk in. A bar strait ahead, tables to the right and booths to the left. That's not all: there is a patio and past the patio there is another area to seat. The parking has never been a problem for me which is a real plus. We tied a heat record yesterday and the A/C was nice and cool. The staff said they were trying to make the patio dog-friendly and this would make the place outstanding for me.

Q: This place brews some great beers! I always try something on the seasonal list and there is always something on cask. Yesterday it was a Spiced Belgium Ale. When I was there last time, I tried a Double IPA on cask.

S: The servers are great. I haven't been there enough so that they know me; but the service is fast and friendly. Servers seem to know their beer which is always important to me.

S: Several regular craft beers and more than a couple of seasonal beers that rotate insure that I find something that I like. I don't think that they serve guest beers but the selection of the brews they make are very good to outstanding.

F: The food is far better than bar food. I had the hamburger with the homemade chips: very good.

V: Regular beers for $4.50, seasonal beers for $5.00, and growlers for $11.00 (regular beer) is a good deal for good beer. There is a happy hour but I have always missed it.

I recommend this place to you guys in BA. I would like to meet the brewer someday and shake his hand!
