Long, narrow indoor space. Bar at he back of the room with the brewhouse beyond the bar. Not a large taproom. They have not made any attempts at sound deadening so it can get loud. They are guilty of a couple taproom pet peeves of mine. They do not have an ordering station for people to walk up and get a beer. And they keep the swag behind the bar. Both contribute to more work for the servers than is necessary. They had 6 beers on-tap during my visit but they have room for 12. I liked the majority of the beer I tried but nothing that is going to excite the beer geek. Nothing adventurous but more towards the masses. The IPA lacked flavor and hop bite. Service was friendly and prompt. They seemed to have rudimentary knowledge of the beer they were serving. They have a nice location and should do well.

Located in an old building in the downtown, it features a fairly large taproom with plenty of exposed brick, beautiful wood bar and floors and warm lighting. Lots of tables, low and high.
The quality of the beers seems excellent, the lagers were well crafted with no noticeable flaws.
The server was quick and friendly and knew her beers.
Selection was good, nothing crazy. Strong on lagers.
Overall, a friendly and welcoming spot with good beer that I'd happily revisit.

Attractive renovation of older building. Long narrow space with bar on one side towards the back. Scattered tables, low and high. Does not take many people there for the decibels to get loud. Clean room and rest rooms. Good service. Located on the old downtown main street of town but kind of cut off from the passing busy highway/city street. Parking nearby is diagonal of side streets.

Stopped by, about half full, but very loud. Nice space, doesn't feel like a normal brewery or tap room, more like a small bar. Bar itself was smallish but nice and seemed like it was partially taken up by a redundant tap tower, which is too bad. Decor was wood and brick and has a comfy vibe. It felt like it could use more tables and seats, but it is still new, so maybe they are going to add. No patio, which is a bummer, and parking is really quite bad (I had to park almost 2 blocks away). Service was very good. Beers need work, I am hoping they will dial it in. The IPA did not smell or taste like an IPA, and my partner and I both left ours half full. The other beers weren't really bad per se, but they seemed either too sweet or, something.... can't put my finger on it.

The interesting thing that they may have to figure out - right next door, literally 10 feet, is Turtles. Turtles had an awesome tap list. And food. And less noise. The beers and selection at Turtles was just better, better by a wide margin.
