I've been here a number of times to buy beer or attend brewery events. Easy parking around the corner on Knox Ave. with a light at Montrose. If you get on their mailing list, they have seasonal events and sometimes grill out behind the brewery.

The shop itself is merely a roped off area of the brewery, with a freestanding cooler and tiki bar counter. Staff is great, they are always willing to chat and offer samples of the draft beers for growler fills. Sometimes they have experimental bottles that don't always see distribution. The barrel room is separate from the brewery, but also cool to see if time allows. Their barrel program is probably their strongest asset, along with their willingness to experiment.

If you're headed to Old Irving Brewing down the street, Lake Effect is a convenient 1-2 stop for beer to go.
