My wife and I stopped here to try their beers and to have a snack. This place is located in a strip retail center that fronts on busy 28th Street. Plenty of parking is available. It was not busy on a Monday afternoon, so the service was very good. The vibe was just average for a brewpub.

Thirteen beers were available (including a grisette) plus there was a guest cider. The brewery is also a winery that makes 4 wines and a mead, plus three soft drinks. We had already had several beers from a previous brewpub visit elsewhere that day, so we needed to limit our intake and chose a sampler flight of only 4 of their beers for evaluation. Each was brewed to its respective style characteristics, except that we felt that the yeast esters were a bit strong in the Treyway Belgian Trippel. None of the beers was overly exciting, but the Salty Caramel Brown was notable.

The food menu was mostly pizza and appetizers, plus a few desserts. We ordered a couple of apps for our snack, and they were very good, to the point that I included a food score as part of this review based on those two apps. (If I can do and evaluation all 13 of their beers based on 4 samplers, I can evaluate their entire menu on a minimal tasting too. But consider that a caveat that comes along with this review.) We liked this place, and we'd like to return someday when we are in the area again.

Smaller place that just opened a few months ago..light airy and on the modern side...a few tables to eat/drink outside....longer wooden bar and about a dozen tables and a few booths....friendly staff...tasty beer and better then decent food...Worth a visit for a casual meal and quality, brewed in house beers
