(#19 of 49) To start off, this place is hard to find. It occupies a red, metal building that sits behind other buildings, and the driveway entrance to the parking lot that serves all of these buildings is two buildings down the street. (I think it was next to a Dutch Brothers coffee kiosk.) Once parked, you need to walk between buildings to get to the pub's entrance. The pub has a nice arrangement and I like the vibe.

We chose to sit at the bar to try their beers. There are 20 taps, although 13 were house beers, two were guest taps, two more were on nitro (also guest beers), two ciders, and one kombucha. We ordered a sampler flight of 6 beers in order to evaluate their beers. All of the beers are brewed above style, but none made it to a notable level. Overall, we scored them at a B-minus grade.

I believe this pub serves food, but we did not see a menu or anyone ordering or eating anything, so I cannot comment any further on that topic. There was a sign there for Backdrop Distilling, but I did not inquire if it is an in-house business operation or the reason for the posting of the distillery's name.
