Brand new, snazzy space in part of a larger collective of shops and businesses. large oval bar, tables, and a patio out front. Plenty of parking too.Great service. Salad I had really hit the spot. Beer was overall decent. Prenty central to downtown Harrisonburg.

Met up with some friends here for dinner and some beers. In a cool old industrial building (apparently used to be an ice warehouse). some outdoor seating, then inside they have a 3 sided bar, surrounded by tables. nice wide variety of beer styles on draft. I drank pints of the Pale Ale, Irish Red, and Oyster Stout. All were solid. Had a pizza for dinner, it was pretty good.

Visited in the Fall of 2021. Really cool place. Very cozy. The library is a unique, place to relax and have a couple brews. Service was good, pretty pleased with their selection, a fight of 5 beers for 12 bucks, pretty reasonable. Pet friendly inside and out. Able to order food from the neighboring restaurant and they deliver it.

Stuck into part of an old factory/warehouse. Parking right across the street for 3 hours. Industrial and open feel to it. Everything I had was quite good. Double Black IPA was excellent. Decent oatmeal stout and a very good dark saison. Half pints available which works for me to try more than 2 or 3 things. Service was excellent. Nice selection the day I stopped. 2nd favorite brewery in town for this kid.

Coolest tap room in the city. Great customer service. Hit or miss on the beers but more hits than misses. Saison kings of the valley

Cozy place, decent amount of room in a fairly nicely located part of town. Close access to a parking garage. The library is fairly unique, though despite the chilly day we were visiting, the fireplace wasn't lit. Either way though, it seems like a nice spot to sip a couple of brews and catch up on some work or some reading. Beers are solid, service was friendly and polite.

Very interesting vibe inside, I've never seen a library inside a brewery before. Seems perfectly catered to the university kids in Harrisonburg. Solid beers, good service

Harrisonburg's 2nd locally grown brewery. Taproom and patio seating is spacious and inviting. A wall of books, games, a tv and music playing. They are just getting started so the tap lines aren't all filled with separate beers, but if it's any indication with what is on tap now (July 2015), when all lines are filled, they will be great beers. Food available to order from local places.

The atmosphere and beers are great. Hopefully they start pumping out more beer soon though, because I've had mass quantities of all of their beers. I need some variety to spice things up, and 1 new beer every month and a half isn't quite doing it for me.
