This brewery has a very chill and laid back vibe. I got a flight of 8 beers for $20 and most of their beers were very good. The lighting in this place was however too dim, I even had to use the light on my phone to read their menu which was annoying at times. They had a band playing the night I went which was perfect for the atmosphere of the brewery. Friendly staff with about 25 beers on tap. My favorite beer they had on was their guava sour it was super good! I can't say from personal experience but I wouldn't recommend getting their food because I heard it was awful. Overall very nice and chill brewery with a very nice ambiance.

Really awesome building, but hard to describe. very open downstairs, upstairs is divided into 2 parts. One side has an open middle where you can look down to the first floor TVs and bar, and the other side has a log cabin feel with another bar and an overhanging patio. Service is prompt and good, even when busy. They have a great chef, medium sized menu, and delicious food. Beer is where the issue comes in. They are very hit or miss, and have had a big diacetyl problem. They stick mostly to IPAs and saisons/farmhouse style beers, and a lot of their IPAs have been butter bombs. When they hit, they are above average for sure. They also have a large beer list with a lot of different options.

Good space in west Buffalo down Elmwood. Good tap lines, very good guest taps. Service very good. Only complaint was the host beer which disappointed. Most were not above a home brew, though the raspberry sour was good.

They are now brewing and had seven of their beers on tap plus several other guest taps. The two beers I tried were certainly very good! They also do crowlers.

We drove all the way back from Niagara Falls to have a beer and some food here only to find out that they are NOT brewing their own beer. Considering that there were many other breweries that we could have visited instead, I found it disappointing that this information was not available. A nice bar, but not a brewery.
