Located in brick building with a smaller tap room but a nice backyard beer garden and dog friendly for outside. Beer were OK, maybe a little the same, but solid. They were serving 5 of the 8 on their menu tap.

Beer is just OK. Owner is super nice. Have a nice beer garden for the summer. The brewery itself is kind of odd on the inside and hours are horrible. I won't be going back.

Small place in an historic brewery building. Limited hours. Mostly locals at the bar and filling up growlers. Pleasant and helpful waitstaff. Beer needs a lot of work.

Vibe - very locals brew pub feel to it.

Quality - been there when they first opened and then again a year later hoping it improved. It hadn't

Service - the bar staff is quite friendly

Selection - I just don't care for places that serve other breweries beer. It makes me question your ability to brew

This brewery was a major let down. The interior is really cool and it has a lot of potential, but this is a swing and a miss. The staff was 2 ladies and they were very nice, but their kindness couldn't make up for the terrible beer. Simply put and blatantly obvious, this is homebrew gone commercial gone awry.

Don't waste your time.
