This was a nice surprise, and the best new brewery I've "discovered" in a couple of years. The lineup is an impressive variety:
- three Saisons
- three IPAs
- Quad
- Rye DIPA
- Imperial Stout/DIPA
- Belgian Red
- Abbey Single
- Kolsch
- Vienna Lager

Some interesting flavorings they use are grapefruit, kumquats, cherries, honey, and dates. Beers are available in 4 oz tasters, tulip or pint glasses, and growler fills. They have 22 oz bottles labeled and ready to fill anytime now. My only quibble is that the empty 32 oz growlers are an extortionate ten bucks. A few of the brews are available on tap at three dozen bars and restaurants in the Coachella Valley.

A staff person came up and greeted us as we were looking around, and the beertenders were friendly and eager to help. When the Quad keg was giving out, she wouldn't give me the last taster size glassful ("too yeasty") and brought us two for the price of one when the tap was switched.

Location is just off I-10 at Bob Hope Dr. It's straight east from Palm Springs if you're staying there, on either Ramon Rd. or Vista Chino. Truly nowheresville, but an impressive industrial-park brewing facility. The tasting room is high-ceilinged but not so big but plenty of seats and a small bar. Nice restrooms. Informative chalkboard beer listing as well as info sheets on the tasting room-only brews. Absolutely worth a visit if you're in the desert cities area, or for some reason driving between LA and Arizona. Brewery tours available.

A super spot in the desert! Wow! Not at all expected. Great selection, cool location and tons of really unique selections for beer. The Rye IPA was outstanding and I had to go back to sample the IPA with ghost peppers...delicious! we will be back for sure!!

Nice stopping place in the desert, north of Palm Springs and close to the 10 freeway. Servers are friendly and helpful. There is always a variety of beers on tap for most any palate ranging from light saisons and session IPA styles to high ABV stouts and barrel aged beers. Brewer uses local ingredients as much as possible including killer bee honey in Desert Swarm. They have a water saving brew system is a plus in drought stricken California. Frequently will have local food vendors on weekends.

Stopped by on the way back from Joshua Tree, cool small establishment with friendly staff and a whole ton of options. Couldn't come close to trying everything but their focus is on ipas (a couple wet hopped) and belgians. Good stuff!

New Brewpub in an Industrial park just off I-10 and Bob Hope drive really easy to get to if in palm desert or palm springs. when you walk in plenty of seating and high ceilings kind of looked like a Chipolte in decor clean,, that have a featured chalk board of newer taps on and a bigger chalkboard over the bar that describes all beers and denotes if its on tap 2day it also briefly describes each brew , Brews are available in 4oz. tulip. or pint some are in 22oz bombers for sale and growlers are available... they had at least a dozen taps going service was friendly but some what slow , brews were good with some local ingredients which i liked to see also many of the bars i was in were also serving CVB brews, this was a nice find and recommended for sure to visit when in the desert
