Decent selection of beers on tap and the service is good. My only problem is that the beers are average at best. At a time when there are so many outstanding local options they need to step up their game and improve their beers.

Decent vibe- high ceilings, long bar, some games around. Service was fine.... Beers were meh.... Most were oddly bitter, with aggressive hops (a classic new brewery mistake).... Honey ale is boring and over played now... Barn Rocker is average at best... An array of IPAs all tasted bitter with forced hops...Nothing had me craving another...... Definitely a late follower of the overdone trends, rather than a trend setter.......

After at least a dozen visits over three years I am submitting a rating as it seems that brewery/ barroom improvement has ceased.
The space is appropriately industrial.
I do like that dogs are welcome.
The beer selection is always varied.
My significant issue is that mediocre brews have NYC prices at the brewery. Additionaly, some pretty awful "beta brews" (my term for experimental one-offs) are priced higher than that. The brewers must know each time that "this is not good" so price it higher? None of these are common brew-site sales strategies.

The many servers I have had were polite and efficient but we're just pulling brews and chatting with friends or on phones
I am guessing that they are working hard at selling as much as they can off-site, but there is little craft here presently.

6 beers on tap. Friendly hostess. Small space but they are moving in mid November 2025 to another location.

Vibe: The tasting room has a small bar area with some stand up tables and TVs; it is located next to an alcove in the front that has the fermenting tanks and other hardware. The brewery itself is very small, but makes good use of the space, with sacks of grains being stored alongside the tasting room. They have some board games.

Quality: Beers were served at the proper temperate in pint glasses.

Service: Given the small size of the tasting room, service was prompt and friendly.

Selection: A total of five beers were available on-tap when I visited: Amber Ale, American Wheat, Barn Rocker, Honey Ale, and IPA. Sampler flights, pints, and growler fills are available.

Nice open tasting room, with a bar, and some bar games. Allows you to see all the beer being made too.
