Small but inviting and parking is an issue in the industrial park.
This is a brewery, not the 4 Seasons, hence the focus is on the beer, not the "creature" comforts.
Great beer, varied selection, and reasonable prices.

Stopped by last weekend as I was in the area. Small but nicely kept tasting room, with very friendly service. Was able to taste a few beers before selection and was definitely made to feel at home. No question went unanswered and you can tell that the people working there love what they do. Would definitely recommend it. Would be great to have more places to sit, but hopefully that will come with time.

I went there when they first opened, now the crowd has grown a little bigger than the small tap room can handle. I have like the beers I have had. The early staff was more approachable. Hop they can expand to larger area or free up parking. Good that Westmont welcomed them so many years ago.

Reminds me a lot of Solemn Oath. Industrial Park. Spartan, utilitarian look. I like that. Could've used some more seating, but I did stop in on Black Wednesday, so they were probably dealing with a lot more people than normal. Everything you'd expect, streaming music, growler fills, beer flights, etc. Prices were quite reasonable and the brews were extremely tasty. We were lucky enough to get there when they tapped a keg of Cold War and that was hands down the highlight of the night. Worth seeking out if you are in the area. Staff was great, friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. I will definitely head back.

I had a great time at this particular brewery. This was the second stop in the "close by brewery trip that lasted 5 hours". I have me the the brew master thru my job before, we got to talkin and tried a few that were still in their fermentation processes which was just amazing.
A: Tough to depict during a snowstorm in a industrial park but found easy by the cars in the lot area. Inside was very simple, industrial, loved it! Really cool collectibles.
Q: Fantastic fresh beer, every one, very clean pours and glassware. I love a clean place.
S. Right on the money, they treat every customer equal. No BS, no favorites, I admire this level of service.
Sel.: Really nice sampler platter available. They have a few (6) rotating when I was here.
F: No food available (beer is better anyway!)
V: 8oz pours but none over $4 most $3.50 ish. Very inviting pricing.
Out of the 4 breweries I went to this one took the cake. Will be back many times on end. Can't wait for new products to be released!!

I had been following these guys on Facebook for awhile after catching them at a tasting and finally was able to make my way out there on a saturday afternoon with my gf. The tasting room could fit 20 or so comfortably (maybe a bit more). There were a couple of regulars...and after being there for awhile, I can under why they would want to come there often. The service was awesome and made you feel like you were drinking at a bar in your friend's basement...that just happens have many amazing beers on tap (Krispy the Wino was quite great!). I do look forward to hitting this place again and bring more and more friends to see what we did.

This little joint in the middle of an industrial park has no signage but on the door. I only noticed it as I creeped through the parking lot and noticed barstools through a half open overhead door. As soon as you walk in there's a 12-15 seat L-shaped bar, 3 or 4 bar tables and a small 12ft standing bar. All the brewing equipment is right there behind a small plywood wall and in full view while the taps are behind the bar. No flash here, just a brewery selling beer. What a novel idea.

Stopped in about 5:30 (:30 after opening) and the place was already busy, although it's small. The bar and tables were all full but the bartender was running around trying to keep up with the rush. They had four of their own taps and two guest taps all at $3.50 a half-pint with growlers available of their own offerings. Kolsch, Alt, Pale Ale, and IIPA were the house offerings while the guest taps were Pipeworks Australian Summer Ninja (only a couple days old) and an upstart, Slapshot Brewing's Honey Blonde.

The alt was one of the better alts I've had in a long while, the pale was easy drinking and flavorful, and the IIPA was hugely tropical and bitter. I was highly impressed with those three selections and a couple friends mentioned how much they liked the kolsch. A growler of the IIPA was $27 with glass, pricey, but worth splitting with friends. There's also one of the craziest looking food trucks, a brick oven pizza truck, that's housed a couple doors down and happily stops at the brewery, can't speak for the food though. The only thing I found weird...I was going to pay cash and the bartender actually asked if I had a card because he said it's a lot easier for them. Either way... Check out Urban Legend, I see good things in this breweries future.
