A good place...chill and easy. Food is available inside/shared tenant.
Beer is good...not amazing but not offensive. I would return...
I would like to see a description of the beer somewhere. 5 IPAs on the board but no description...not good. The bartender, while nice, could only say one was happier than the other...

A great place to find oneself any day of the week and any time of the day.
It is actually like two places in one as Faster Basset coffee shop and the Front share a building and inside space. You walk in and on one side is the coffee shop and the other the brewery.
You actually order food from the coffee shop and beverages from the brewery and you can sit anywhere. They had a few tvs, and a full view of the brewery.

The beers were all good. The strong ale and the ipas were very good. I think they had 3-4 differing ipas. Not a bad beer. I think I tried them all cept for the light beer. Easily as good as Bowser. Which gives GF two dynamic breweries.

The food was fantastic. A very strong empahsis on local and sustainable foods. They have burgers and a full menu. Prices are fair and customer service is good. They need to explain better to order food at one place and beers at the other, but thats minor. Ate there for all three meals in a day while there cause it was that good! Just switched from the fair trade organic locally roasted coffee to locally craft brews by dinner.
