Stopped here right when they opened just to get a few bottles to take home and have a flight. The place is pretty nice. The selection is solid. The service was good too. There were a couple bottles I would of liked to buy but they were onsite consumption only and I was driving so that was going to work for me. Maybe Next time.

Long overdue review from Resolute Day (11/14/15). I only give it ~4.5 across the board because there is always room for improvement and the bros are up to it. Not only was this event well organized, but enjoyable. A ticketing system that allowed me to go up the night before, "get in line", and guarantee myself beer. The day of, I not only arrived late, but didn't lose the number I obtained the night before on my ticket/wristband. A rotation of guest taps, food trucks, and a laid back environment, what more can you ask for? Beer was distributed ~25 numbers at a time that were called with a ~10 minute buffer. No standing in line and talking to the same people for hours. Just come up, hang around, listen for your number and enjoy some great beer. The guest taps were phenomenal (CBS and Miami Madness being the highlights) and the staff handled the crowds very well. The staff, from owners to volunteers, ran a great show and I plan on coming back whenever possible. After drinking several world class beers before, during and after the event. I found myself coming back for more and more Cutting Teeth, the mosaic..? pale they had at the time. These guys are doing great stuff and if you ever want to 'go back to college' for a weekend, rest assured there is great beer waiting for you as well.

Very nice place. On most visits its calm and quiet. On weekend nights they do have music which can get loud just by the nature of the size. All people that work there are very friendly and helpful. Most of all their beers are great. If they have the Resolute or any variants of while you are there get it!!!

Great place, good beer, friendly staff, good atmosphere. Resolute is amazing and worth the trip. A bunch of other good beers on tap also. Normally has a food truck near by.

Not a bad place to stop if one is driving along I-81. There is decent setup with a good selection of beers. The do have a few HDTVs(4 different NFL games were on the Sunday I stopped by).

Located just a little bit outside the outskirts of the city, there's still a very welcoming vibe. Excellent tap room, woody and warm brown colors but not horrifically dark. An adjacent lounge room with comfy chairs is also a real nice inviting spot, with some outside patio area along the side.

Quality of brews are pretty solid with a step up above average to excellent. Top notch service from the bartender who can make excellent recommendations and is very familiar with the product. Taps list change but also the styles are varied, with some good take home sales available as well.

Real nice stop for a pint if you are in Harrisonburg.
