A little hard to find but worth the trip. I like their Fool's Errand Porter. selection was more IPA but still balanced. Clean place. Will come back to try more samples.

Way above average for a newer brewery, there was greater attention to detail that you don't always see elsewhere. They also seemed to be doing a lot more with less space than much larger breweries.

Yes the brewery is in a strip mall, but once you're in there, it's like walking through a dimensional portal. Modern and classy with a grey/black/wood color palette, and a unique patterned wallpaper in a 'distressed rorschach' style. Everything is considered, and it really elevates the clean vibe here. The bar is live edge blonde wood with a nice grain, the floor is concrete with an interesting finish that looks like a sparkling lunar landscape when it catches some daylight from the side windows.

Fermenters and foeders in the back, a little gaming parlor back there too, and some nice couches hidden in the back past a gas fireplace framed by subway tiles.

Beer selection was great, a dozen house beers of various styles. German Pilsner and passionfruit milkshake IPA were standouts. 4 or so IPA's, a porter, hefeweizen, witbier, table beer, a dry hopped sour ale, a fruited sour ale, plus a few more. Quality was top notch, there wasn't a dud in the 7 beers I sampled. Got a round of the Hype's Kryptonite Pils and a crowler of the Passionfruit Candy Squeeze.

Service was great, never had to wait long for a beer, and they called when food was ready. Had a couple extra beers on my bill that took a little while to get sorted out, but it all worked out fine in the end.

Overall this was a great place with a cool relaxed vibe and lots of potential. I look forward to returning sometime soon.

Hasn't been open very long, but has received good reviews in the local press. Roaring Table currently does not offer food, but does sell snack foods, like bacon flights and soft pretzels from Gnarly Knots. Food can be ordered and delivered from nearby restaurants.
Limited beer selection, but plans are to expand choices as the business grows. The staff is welcoming and engaging. The Roaring Table has a bit of an upscale vine for being in the burbs, but feels like a place that will draw customers looking for something a bit different than a sports bar.

A brewery and taproom in a strip mall. The taproom is nicer than most with very appealing and comfortable furnishings. The quality of the beer is inconsistent. A couple of the beers were decent but the other two were watery and flat. Service was fast and friendly. The selection is currently limited to four house taps and four guest taps.
