Not so easy to find compared to other breweries. Once inside it's just a simple concrete hall with some casks and chairs around it.
The beers are absolutely fantastic. Despite the small to-go list there's quit some stuff you can drink on site.

Went here to view an air show from a distance. This brewery is pretty conveniently located on a major road in South Hadley and inside an old industrial building. The building was converted quite nicely; when you enter the brewery equipment is to your left while a huge L-shaped bar is there. Several, and I mean several, long tables and tall tables are in the bar area. Plenty of places to sit. In front of all the tables are some dart boards, a board game table, some other bar games, and a huge big screen TV that, today, was on the World Cup game.
It seemed there were two bartenders working. Service was ok. I felt a little rushed when I was asked what I wanted. The brewery, I believe, had eight of their beers on tap. There is no food, but some non-alcoholic drinks like ginger ale. Two food trucks were there today so there is that option if you are hungry. Very laid back atmosphere, but with such a game on, it might have been difficult ascertaining the usual atmosphere of the brewery space.
Overall, really dug the space; nice brewery for the location.

Extra .25 points added to selection as a number of their drafts are also available in bottle. Located just down the street from the Main Street shopping area so street parking wasn't a hardship. No food; pretzel sticks on the bar. Good selection of beers.

Place has only been open a couple of weeks but is doing it right. Old building refurbished. Beergarden and a good selection of beers to chose from. Live music on Sunday afternoon. Had the Double Crop Cream Ale; excellent. Especially liked the Lieferbrau logo, which is availed on mugs, glasses and t-shirts.

Great little brewery in Silverton in the middle of the mountains. Great beer, food, and staff. Been here a few time and its best not to go when the trail isn't running, less busy. If you are in SW Colorado, don't miss this place. Plus the drive is awesome.

Across the street from Hopskeller so you get two brewpubs from one parking space. Visited shortly after it opened so I had time to sit and visit with the bartender/owner. No food. Tried the Honey Kolsch - it was very good. Previously had an oatmeal stout brewed for last summer's eclipse; also very good. A very good reason to visit Waterloo, Illinois.

Visited in World Cup Sunday so place was crowded and upbeat. Ordered beer at the bar and food at the next counter. Wood fired pizza was excellent. Brews are mostly English style. London Lager, Illinois Common Ale and Nickel Black Ordinary Ale were very good.

Visited during our recent vacation to Montreal. Nice location in a residential area in north central part of the city. It is a bit smaller than I expected. Bar area is darker wood and pretty typical of a nice pub. The service is great! very attentive servers. We ate lunch while there. Pub type food, a small but very tasty selection. The beer selection was great, as was the quality. It was so good my wife wanted to go back a second time while we were there, so we did!

Typical looking Long Island NY beer and sofa spot.
Friendly enough guy behind the counter.
What popped out immediately was the huge selection this place offers....shelves of quality can options from the usual and not so usual locals and just about everything else you can get in the area.....well worth a visit....only about 10 mins from LI all stars Sand City in Northport

A fun little spot, showcasing the beers of Omnipollo and friends. I was a little surprised at how small it was, but it was neat and sort of had a retro vibe. Busy most of the time (I went about 5 times during my stay in the city), but the service was generally fine. The bar seats only maybe 8 people. And oh god, the air conditioning...thank you, Jebus. This I think was one of maybe two places in all of Sweden that had AC, which was a life-saver during the heat wave I had the misfortune of enduring.
The tap list is good, and constantly rotating. i'm pretty sure they rotate non-empty kegs, or just do sixtels or something, because I definitely saw a few beers go and return. They put some good stuff on, about what you'd expect if you know the brewery. They also had a slushie machine going, for making their Buxton-collab ice cream beers.
As for food, other than little snacks, they make stone oven pizzas. Being a fat American, I've had about every kind of pizza imaginable. These guys definitely are making some good pies, and I found myself craving them when I was in downtime in my AirBNB. Great combinations of ingredients, and good personal sizes.
So yeah, this place is a must-visit when you're in town. Have a pizza, get a beer, and cool off in the beautiful AC.

Another bucket list bar, checked off.
Typical Euro look about the place, reminding me a lot of Belgian beer bars and Monk's back home. Ample bar space, patio seating, and a sort of retro 50's parlor-lookin' inner room with a stage for bands. There's a very "classic" vibe in here. Service was on and off, a little inadequate, but I pretty much have that beef with most European bars I've been to. Regardless, the bartenders were knowledgeable, and beer-savvy. I didn't try any food here, but I came mainly for the beer.
Tap selection was fair to good most of the times (I went here about 5 times during my stay in Stockholm), with some Euro-macro stuff for the faint of heart, and at least one lambic or gueuze on every time. Even tapped a kegged of Fou Foune, which lasted several days. What you're really going for here, is the beer bible, the cellar list. You're going to pay for stuff in this tome, but if you're smart, you can find a lot stuff that is reasonably under black market prices, and if you're sharing with someone, even better.
Akkurat lived up to my expectations for sure. You'll want to go here.

Located in the Cave Springs of area, in a small strip-mall. Place is much larger than it appears from the out side. Plenty of seating, as well as a good sized bar. They usually have about 7-8 of their beers on tap with 3-4 guest taps. Personnel are friendly and very knowledgeable about their beers. They also have nice food menu to complement the beers. Nice addition to the local craft beer community. Worth checking out.

Sly Fox in Pottstown,17 beers on draft but nothing attractive. Brews that were average 15 years ago and today are just plain outdated.
Beer hall atmosphere, nothing special. Stickman is close by and so much tastier.
Pizza was good, though
