This place was a very pleasant surprise for Dayton OH. In a seemingly trendy neighborhood they are located in an nicely updated older building with character. There is plenty of parking and the taproom is reasonably spacious. Service was good, but it wasn't exactly crowded on a Sunday afternoon, orders at the bar only as far as I could tell. They had about 12 beers on tap and all were solid with a few that were very good. I wasn't necessarily expecting much but this place turned out to be someplace I would go out of my way to visit any time I am in Dayton. When it comes to unknown local places I find that most fall into two categories, the ones that know what they are doing/ understand the modern beer scene, and the ones who have absolutely no clue. These guys definitely know what they are doing.

Inline location in small hip downtown area. Long bar with a good amount of tap selections. A few guest taps as well. Sort of macabre art on the walls fits the vibe. Beers were solid. Good stop if you're in Dayton.

Easy to find and park on a Tuesday evening. Fairly light crowd. Had some metal music playing on the speaker system. The bar tender was friendly and helpful. Cool art on the walls. Both beer and mixed cocktails are available. Wish they had more of their own beer on tap. Had an outdoor area in front that opens up to the street which is great for people watching. Worth a visit.

Relaxing atmosphere with a mix of regulars and visitors. Owner was there and very willing to talk beer. Nice that you can get 4oz, 8oz, and 16oz on most beers. The place felt comfortable and friendly and had interesting local art on the walls....oh, and free popcorn and shuffleboard!

Nice location in the Oregon District of downtown Dayton (for what it is...). Place was relatively quiet since I like to hit microbreweries in the middle of the afternoon. Overall, had more of a bar atmosphere than a microbrewery atmosphere, but was still very relaxed and casual while I was there. Reasonable selection of beers. Friendly staff. Due to the bar atmosphere, there didn't seem to be a real opportunity to talk beer with the folks behind the bar like I would at some other microbreweries. In any case, certainly worth a visit if you are in Dayton.
