after having a few lackluster beers in their funked up series, this was one of the last twin cities breweries for me to visit, but i had a great experience in here. the space is a bit out of the way, tucked back in a warehouse area, mellow back there, with some outside seating in front and a small bar area, room for probably no more than 40 or 50 people comfortably. they had a neat mix of beers on, but less of the funked up series than i had hoped, although they did have really fair priced bottles of a lot of those beers. i enjoyed the tropricot, maybe my favorite beer ive had from them so far, but the double cocoa pub stout was also delicious, and the menu was full of intriguing offerings. service was friendly and relaxed, attentive and knowledgeable. they also make spirits in here, which looked good and were generating a lot of positive feedback around the taproom, but i did not taste any of them. neat they are able to do both. i think the beer has gotten better here, and they are certainly staying ambitious with their recipes. i shouldnt have waited to long to make it in here, i had a great time and the beers were solid. check it out if you havent yet!

Located in a very industrial area, it's not much to look out from the outside. It's nicer on the inside with large door opening to a patio and food truck. It was pretty busy because of a special release. Fairly long line to order beers. The server was helpful and allowed me to grab a taste before ordering. I loved the special release but find their core lineup to be average.

This might be the least savory taproom I have ever been to. The vibe is definitely a dive bar with fairly seedy people as well. The day I went was packed, but this was due to it being the day of their largest seasonal release. The service was alright but the beer was nothing remarkable. I had their IPA which took earthy to a new level in terms of a British IPA. I also had their Dark Fatha which was forgettable for how hyped it was. Least favorite taproom in the area, but not the worst beer.

Right off of 35W and City Centre Drive . Bent sits to the center back of several rows of light industrial buildings many shipping/receiving docks are visible the inside is actually very nice a warm wooden feel also an outside patio/deck that overlooks docks delivwery area's , beer and vibe is ok just a little strange for the location.

It is in an area of light machine shops but they have spruced the tap room up, the beer is innovative and good and the atmosphere is convivial. Usually a food truck nearby.

The taproom itself, located in the back of an industrial park's warehouse space, actually has a nice presentation. Half circle bar with the tap lines suspended from the ceiling, 8-9 taps of experimental plus handmade sodas and coffee on nitro, with the taplist chalkboard behind the bar and cooler of bottles around the corner. Shared space with the actual brewery means all the shiny, steel vats are on display, but they're partitioned off by high security metal fencing (a unique solution that imparts a tinge of prison atmosphere). Their patio, made with stone pavers, overlooks the parking lot, but does have neat high-top tables made with used whiskey barrels.

The solo tender couldn't explain the beers on tap, and also poured us the wrong beers in the wrong sized glassware. The apricot berliner was actually to style and pleasant, export stout was mediocre homebrew, but the Belgian Berlin Ur-bock was straight-up infected (vegetal compost / wet garbage), but the tender didn't understand when we complained. Really no excuse to have infected beer on tap at the source. Also, the non-year-round half pints were $5-7 each! Do not recommend.
