Beers were good when the original brewer was there. Now...meh. Take a pass. Location is all this has got going.

I visited this brewpub on a recent trip to the area on business. For a Monday night, there was a respectable crowd. There is plenty of nearby parking in lots and garages, although I found a close spot on a side street.
The place is cozy, and I sat at the bar. There were friendly regulars and prompt, friendly service. The scotch ale was solid, and the IPA was nice. The coconut stout was okay. They were not bad beers, but none were world class.
I was there on $5 burger and a beer night, which was a fantastic deal. The burger was excellent...juicy, flavorful, and satisfying.
Worth a visit if you are in the area.

Built in an old building, this is a cozy bar with a stainless steel bar and cozy booth and table seating right downtown. Good selection and friendly staff.

Not a lot of street parking adjacent to the brewpub building but there is a parking ramp a block away and additional street parking once you get more than a block away. Feels like I have been in this building before, but I do not remember what it was back in the 80s and 90s. Nice interior that has character and uses the old architecture very well. Service was friendly and knowledgeable and they are kept busy as the bartenders also waited on the tables on this Sunday during my visit. They also fill growlers and crowlers. Did not have any food but it looked very good and I was tempted to order something even though I just ate. The beer was a bit average. Detected some fermentation flaws in the Scotch Ale and would of like to judge the coconut stout without the coconut as I felt that could of been covering something up. I will go back, eat, and try some more beer.
