vibe: 4.25 | quality: 5 | service: 5 | selection: 4

Probably the most underrated/off-the-radar brewery in the area. The vibe here is chill and cozy. You're basically hanging out in the brewing area with an assortment of tables, chairs and some board games. Everyone is welcome of course, but this is not the place for hophead fanboys that stand in line all day for rare wax-dipped bottles of trendy nonsense. That is to say you probably won't encounter those types while you're here. This is the brewpub equivilent of a top notch dive bar. Real people drinking real beer. Inspired beer with real flavor and nuance. Poetry on draft.

Last time I was there I saw founder/owner Brian Hunt working on something or another. He was carrying a curved piece of pipe back and forth around the brewery, and he stopped to observe all the folks enjoying his work.. it brought a huge smile to his face as he stood there soaking it in. After a minute or so he (and his smile) disappeared through a door that I'm certain leads to a Willy Wonka style room full of wonder and amazement.

They have a few hats/shirts for sale (and some glassware too), but oh did I mention their beers are DELICIOUS?? They usually have 4-7 choices on tap, so I would call their selection adequate rather than overwhelming. The staff is friendly and the music is on point. The hours are somewhat limited, but this place is still one of my favorites. I like the way Moonlight does things, and this tasting room is just like their beer- NO NONSENSE.
