Great spot but its time to ditch the covid protocol and get back to business as usual.

Merch is online only. World-class IPAs served in dumb plastic cups. And, disjointed order-online-wear-a-bracelet ordering process.

Just get back to being a brewery serving great beer.

New location is one of the best breweries I’ve been to; great layout and huge. Crazy good beers and selection, wish I could go here every weekend. Highly recommended.

Corona may have been a good thing for Tree House from a customer perspective. Even when I am in my car waiting I can multi-task and do work whereas when I was standing in line it was very hard to do. Shorter waits in my car and if they can get the people process more efficient when it opens up it would only make the experience more stellar.

Man, thoroughly unimpressed with TH! Such amazing beers but the service is very rough. I know they have a ton of people coming through but not very personable and employees make you feel as if you are burdening them. Great IPA and stout selection but if you want something outside of those this isn’t the place for you.

Imagine going to a Toyota factory and you get to test the drive cars there. That's both a good and bad way to describe it.

Love coming here, even post covid. Super efficient for pick ups. Pre-covid, super chill vibe, pooches all around, everyone happy and helpful. Always an awesome draft selection (on select days) and that SMELL!!! Awesome all around.

All breweries should strive to grow like this one has!!! Selection has grown to enormous volumes and variations. Considering a handful of years ago you were lucky to get 6 beers for your 90 minute wait. Pre-covid, this was a destination where you could grab a couple of pours while you enjoyed the beautiful outdoor scenery from one of the many various location to chill and enjoy your beverage. Great music vibe, warm fires during the winter, awesome food trucks, great customers who are all there to enjoy themselves. We all have one thing in common, we love TREE HOUSE!!! I hope to enjoy this location soon and the new ones coming in 2021 & beyond.

This place and brewery are for real. 9 of top 100 beers in USA should say enough. Curbside was a buzz kill, but part of the 2020 summer road trip journey.

Just know what you're getting into. Timing it to be "not crowded" seems near impossible on a weekend so just expect that.

Was there while in Providence for a concert. Got there at open, waited about 45 minutes in the can line while a friend grabbed us a seat at the bar. Great layout, can system of getting a card and selecting on that is nice. A more modern approach where users could select from their phone would be a solid update.

Peaceful but crowded. The two drink limit was appreciated, as it kept foot traffic moving. On this particular saturday morning, the can line was far more active and exhausting than the interior bar. Very excited patrons, great mix of locals and beer travelers.

World class. The grounds are beautiful, the parking and lines are marked well and easy to use. The open space and outdoor space are incredible.

Kind, courteous, fast, knowledgeable -- couldn't ask for anything more.

Had something like 21 different cans and 15-20 different drafts so selection was fantastic. Everything I tried was good, a lot of custom experimental rifts on their stalwarts at the bar.

I visited in late October on a birthday roadtrip. This was the crown jewel of the trip. I arrived quite late, around 5pm. There was no line to get in, but the lime for cans was maybe 10-15 people deep. Extremely efficient - you fill out a card with a can menu, wait on line, give your card to the staff when you're up, and they put your order together. I wasnt on line for more than 5 minutes. They also got the whole brewery to sing Happy Birthday when they saw my ID. Mortifying, but very kind.

Regarding cans: These guys are second-to-none. First off, they sell singles of everything, which is fantastic. Second, the prices are hard to beat. Many of their IPAs run between $3.25 and $4.00 per can, with some of the heavy hitters running about $5. Buy a single can of some local IPA at a shop, you could pay $6-$7.

Regarding the vibe: Man, this place is beautiful. Situated on a huge farm hill, in the middle of nowhere surrounded by trees, it is a very picturesque location. You really want to drink your beer outside here. There's a largw common area with hand-carved rustic wooden benches and tables made from slabs of trees. At night, the lighting is adequate, and they actually play real music. I recall some Genesis over the speakers. There is plenty of green grass to set a blanket on and sit down, or you can walk up the hill as well. There is a massive stone koi pond with healthy koi that are fun to watch. The taproom setting isn't huge, but it's very rustic, with plenty of table seating. The whole thing has a real forest lodge vibe. There's a large merch section as well, and easy, SUPER CLEAN restroom access, for when you decide to return the beer you borrowed. There was a short line for pours, maybe 8 people, but I've heard it can get lengthy. Prices aren't as impressive as they are for cans, which is to be expected.

Regarding selection: This os constantly rotating, but when I was there, there was an awesome selection of cans. Primarily IPAs, which is what it's always going to be at Tree House. Plenty of core beers, like Green, Julius, Alter Ego, Haze, as well as some variants, like Jjjulius, Aaalter Ego, Doubleganger, some rotationals like Hurricane, Sap, Super Treat, etc... And a few oddballs - a black ale, a porter, as well as several of their milk and coffee stouts. The tap list was great, and they had a few more limited options, like Very Hazy.

Overall: The vibe is great, the setting is incredible, the selection is fantastic, the prices are hard to beat, and the whole service setup is very efficient. The staff was very kind, and never did I feel like I overstayed my welcome, and on that particular day, it never got crowded. It's one of THE premier New England hoppy beer breweries, and a must visit. Worth it in every sense of the word. Wonderful place.

The "Disney World" of New England Brewery's. The atmosphere and excitement of all those visiting, and the service provided by their friendly staff, were only rivaled by the product we purchased and pours we enjoyed. Visit in the summer time when you can relax outside on the adirondack chairs they have provided. I was introduced to Tree House by a friend and return multiple times always bringing friends. The best!
