Visited a few times, typically early in the day (maybe right after opening) on a weekend.

V - Industrial and open with garage doors and plenty of concrete and steel. I like that though, especially the flow from inside to outside. 4.25

Q - Beer from the source and it sells so fast, the quality is always great. 4.5

Ser - Friendly and helpful. Never been here during "rush hour." 4.25

Sel - Great beers but not always broad in the variety of styles. But I still love those IPAs! 4

The Veil is a strange space. Overall it is decorated with a modern industrial style, though there are also stuffed animal heads and taxidermy positioned throughout the space. Inside is a variety of seating. Outside there is a patio area between shipping containers with seating and areas to stand and put your drinks. Based on the smell, I assume dumpsters are located fairly close to this space. Signage is not clear between lines for cans and pours to drink there. Merchandise is also haphazardly displayed. Menu is composed well however, and generous half pours are available. Beer is quite solid, around 25 choices of good beer- IPAs, fruited sours, and stouts mostly. The staff gave me a weird vibe that I couldn't quite put my finger on. Regardless they were quick, efficient, and accurate. Can take away process is efficient as well. The Veil is a must visit if you never have been. Its not a place I see myself spending all day at, though I would like to return for a few drinks.

I think of it as a brewery outlet rather than a bar...it was actually a cooler place when you HAD to wait in line for the goods.
The real special IPA's are slightly fewer and far between and other styles are coming into the mix which to me makes for a little disappointment sometimes.

The beers here are super solid! The music is ALWAYS hip. Despite this, the overall atmosphere feels a bit stiff to me. I don't think that's the fault of the Veil staff, though.
