Always seems to be a popular place, room/tables full. May be bad timing. Been there mostly for a few samples, growler fills or cans. Never disappointed. Both staff and fellow patrons friendly and pleasant. Usually a good selection to choose from.

This is like hanging at a friends basement bar with a bunch of friends and a kegerator. This is a wide open space in an old factory building. No food service but you can bring your own or eat from the food truck of the night parked outside their entrance. They have 5 beers of their own design on tap. Growler fills, flights or you can have a pint and stay for a while.

Interesting spot in what seems like an old loading dock warehouse type of building. They have a decent tap list, the service is good. They had a guy there who was smoking meats outside and then selling them inside which was really awesome. Overall it was a good place.

Not a ton of great beers but a few that are definitely drinkable. Awesome vibe, though. Great place to hang out.

Place was busy on a Friday evening. Cool industrial location with a lot of space, but still overcrowded, disorganized and chaotic. Thought it was strange that a bunch of kids were running around bumping into people. Couldn't really relax. Waited about 15 minutes in line to order a flight which normally consists of 5 beers, but only 4 available (2 of which I had already tried). Beer selection was disappointing. There was no where to sit or at least put my flight down. I had to squeeze into a corner to try to get out of the way. After trying the flight, it took another 30 minutes in line to get a growler fill. I saw a couple of people come in carrying growlers and simply left after seeing the line. Maybe it would be more efficient during busy periods to have a growler fill line separate from the flights, pints, and t shirts that people were purchasing - just a thought. I was not in a hurry however, after spending the majority of my time waiting in line, getting bumped by kids, and moving so people could get around me at this brewery - I will likely not return.
