Nice little brewery tucked away in an industrial park. They have a great patio area, with a chill laid back vibe. Only offered 6 beers the last time I was there, but the ones they had were pretty good. Not gonna blow you away, but better then a a lot of the smaller breweries I've had. Overall a solid stop if your ever find yourself in the area.

(#2 of 49) We stopped here to try their beers. The place is located in a light-industrial neighborhood, and there is some parking on a side of the building. The interior is set up with a long L-shaped bar that is made of concrete, and there is a modest number of tables. The brewing equipment is visible behind the short side of the bar. A couple of garage doors open to a large open patio area that is at the front of the building.

Only 8 taps are available so we ordered a sampler flight of all of them (included one cider). Each of the beers except one was brewed to style, but none stood out very far above average. One of the beers had a distinct butterscotch taste, so I marked it as below average since I consider that a brewing flaw without notice that the flavor was intended by the brewer. We don't usually like the light-flavored beers, but the Lake Day Cream Ale was the beer that we liked the best, probably because it had Citra hops, which is one of our favorites. The Sweetness Stout was served on nitro, but we felt that it was too cold, thus we didn't really enjoy it at its best until the end when our sampler-sized glass was almost empty. Overall we scored the beers at a C+/B- rating.

There are some packaged peanuts/snacks available. Howlers and growlers are available, but the howlers appear to be pre-filled. The surroundings are nice and the beer is okay, so it's a place worth of a visit.

My first visit to this new brewery/taproom. Typical industrial motif - small bar, handful of inside tables and outside seating for the season. One TV, on only when Twins game started; barely audible music; fairly brightly lit.

Very welcoming staff and friendly regular patrons. No food from OMNI, but regular food trucks outside.

Only four beers on tap - 2 sessionable ales, 1 IPA and 1 Sweet Stout. Strongest was 5.8% ABV. I tried two, the IPA and Sweet Stout, and both were reserved/subdued flavors. These might work well with suburban neophytes, but not seasoned geeks. The IPA needed more hops, the stout more of everything - even though flavors were good.

Their beers are very drinkable and I wouldn't hesitate to meet friends there. But, so far I would not seek this place out. Hoping for more varieties coming soon.

They had 3 beers on tap, but it was also opening weekend... Nice bar set up and a nice patio area, will go back in a few months to see what else they are brewing.
