Header Topper is deserving of being labeled a top-5 beer in the world in my opinion -- certainly lives up to the hype. They have a couple of other really great beers like Focal Banger and Crusher, but outside of those, quite mediocre in quality. Still, Heady alone should propel them to a high rating. Great tap room too!

The top of the line in IPAs. As soon as you open the can, you know you are in for a treat. The aroma is amazing. You can almost feel the resin, the grapefruit, the pine needles bouncing around in your head. Then the first sip. Amazing, full and dry, but with a rich hoppy flavor that is filled with all the goodness you come to expect from an IPA. The finish was just about as good as the first sip. Lingering, just leaving you wanting for more.

Free tastings of 3 beers, fast service, world class beers, great vibe space and graphics, outdoor area with frisbee golf, huge parking lot. Only downside is you can’t buy a pint or take your tasting outside. Otherwise one of the best set up brewery/welcome centers I’ve been too!

This place was awesome! We went at about 1 PM on a Wednesday in May, and we basically had the place to ourselves (like maybe 5 other patrons). So we hung out with the staff, had each of the three sample drafts multiple times, they were great! Literally no line to check out, super friendly staff, answering questions, dishing out the free beer etc. Such a good time, especially considering it really just the store/brewery with a couple samples on draft, like not really a tasting room etc.

Anyone who rates this beer less than a perfect 5 rating is a ding dong

In terms of quality this place makes incredible beer! The vibe and service is also very exceptional! I just wish they had more than 6 beers in rotation at a time. As an out of stater I try to load up on as much of their beer as I can when I make the trip up. To sum it up, incredible beer, great service, they just might want to expand their offering at the brewery.
