    Anyone stopped by since it opened this past fall? Is it more of a "tasting-room" or is it more of a bar-type atmosphere?

    I'm hoping to get up to Lewiston in the next couple of weeks and check it out myself. Thanks in advance for any input/thoughts.

    It's pretty sweet. I went during an open house this past fall and it was mobbed, so hard to tell you what the typical atmosphere is like. They had their standard lineup on tap as well as 4 brewery only releases. The only downside is no growlers as of yet. I guess they're looking into metal growlers to fit with the can theme they have.

    oh, have they finally come around on that? summer '11 they were still claiming they were "never" going to do growlers.

    They want to stay consistent - metal cans and metal growlers. I guess right now it's too expensive to invest in metal growlers, but they are looking into it. Heard this through a friend that talked to someone that works for the brewery.
