Kinda in a weird strip mall in an ugly building. The inside looks better. Industrial with high tables and lots of games to entertain the kids. Large selection of beers and they have a 12oz canning machine as an option. Didn't try the food but they had 3 panini options.

Apex is a long standing home brew store, with Apex Aleworks opening in 2018, making them the first brewery in Independence. Interesting spot due to being at the end of a strip mall. An interior garage door shuts off the home brew supply shop from the brewery for when one is open, but not the other. The brewery feels spacious despite being fairly small. Dark floors, high ceilings, and 1/2 of the walls featuring windows keep the space well lit and comforting. String lights through open metal rafters create an industrial, but well-lit experience. Most of the tables are high, allowing groups of up to 6 to chat over brews. A couple couches in the back give a more intimate place to drink and play board games, which are also available. Selection is pretty expansive at this point. Not a lot of focus on variants, but instead spanning a wide array of styles - many of which don't get made much in the craft beer world anymore. For the most part, all the beers are clean and low in ABV, making it a friendly place to socially session some beers. Bar staff is very friendly and helpful.
