Great place to do a sour hour. Also noticed a birthday party going on in the room attached. Cool games to play while you do a flight of beer. Atmosphere all around during happy hour is great. Large natural lighting helps the look/feel. Great!

Spacious interior with limited seating. 11 beers on tap representing a good variety and including 3 beers brewed on-site: the others are brewed at the main, original location in Charlottesville. Well priced flights and nice "poop closets".

Pretty solid spot. The last time I was there they had 12 beers on tap, around half of which were IPAs, DIPAs, or PAs. They also make a very good brown ale (I'm generally not a fan) and coffee stout. They sell a few snacks, and it looks like you could bring in your own food. They have several board games you can play and the place is small but pretty family friendly. Service has been fast both times I have been, including one day with a UVA-Duke basketball game on TV and a full house.

Stopped in at the brewery in Charlotte NC and ordered a flight. Pleasant, knowledgeable staff and great selection of beers. Atmosphere is somewhat sterile, but certainly not off-putting.

Decent little brewery. Beers were pretty good. Service good. 9 beers on tap, looks like they can do 12. All their own. Inside and outside seating. Very little parking.

Cool spot right across from one of my favorite coffee shops. Lots of wood and a handful of tables, including outside seating. The bartender was awesome, and the variety and quantity of beers on tap was surprising. Lots of small-batch stuff. Snacks are available.

Chill, low-key vibe which I liked. Service was friendly. Selection was modest, solid styles and well-crafted beers. Nothing amazing.
There was food but no vegetarian options which was disappointing. Not everyone eats meat.

Awesome place to hang out and grab a beer in Charlottesville. Most of the beers are pretty mediocre in my opinion. I do like the Jack's Java Expresso Stout, and the IPA's are fine, but not exactly memorable. For the most part though, the beers seem to be average (Citra Wheat, Gray Ghost, Saison, Oatmeal Stout, Red Ale, etc.) I did love the Mosaic Imperial Red they made, but it was a one-off and it doesn't sound like they're planning on brewing it again (it was also a homebrewer's recipe that won a competition Three Notch'd was sponsoring.) I will say, the C'ville beers seem to be better than the small batch stuff that is being made at the new brewpub in Harrisonburg, but the core beers are still pretty average.

Atmosphere: a nice outdoor area, and then a kinda odd indoor area. the bar area has lounge like seating and some standing area and a little tv room with some tables. Food trycks on the weekend are a pretty regular sight.

Quality: I got to try a good amount of the beers they had on tap. they had no bombs and some pretty tasty beers

Service: just a couple of bartenders but they seemed to be handling the slightly crowded night pretty well

Selection: in the few months I have known the brewery they have made some serious progress. both in terms of the variety and amount on tap. I hope they continue this trend cause they have been putting some good taplists up

Overall: This brewery is already a good hangout with good beer. and they seem to be getting even better quickly. Definitely a place to keep an eye on.
