On a nice summer afternoon around 5, it was not very busy. Popcorn and pretzels available. Carry in food welcome. A good variety of about 15 beers on hand this day. I sat at the bar and was greeted almost immediately. I had one beer as I was going by on the way home. About 5 minutes from the interstate makes it easy to get to. I will be back with friends to try more.

I stopped here with my wife just to try their beers. This brewery is fairly new, and started with the build-out in a new strip mall setting on a bust commercial street. Parking is to the rear, as is the main entrance to the pub. There is no food other than snacks, but they are food friendly and there are three restaurants in the building for nearby carry-out sources. The taproom is a large open space with a long bar, plus plenty of long and short tables.

We chose to sit at the bar, and ordered a sampler flight of 6 of the 17 beers that were available. (The flight 'paddle' is a custom-made drafting T-square.) All of the beers were brewed very well to style so that the quality score above is the highest one that I've calculated recently. Very good across the board with none of the beers scoring less than a 4.0. The Monk Crusher Rye barrel-aged Belgian Tripel was a clear standout.

There is outside seating on the street side of the pub, and I think I remember seeing a sign that the patio is pet-friendly. Growlers and howlers are available to go.

Great little neighborhood brewery. Solid lineup of regular taps covering a wide variety of styles. Regularly changing seasonal/specialty/limited beers. Each example I've tried is pretty true to style. Very laid back atmosphere. Bar snacks available on site and local carry out options are readily available, allowed, and encouraged. Almost as important as the beer, the staff is very attentive, friendly, and smiling.
