We had lunch and did a flight at RBB. The waffle sandwiches were delicious and the flight was tasty. We loved the Schrute farms saison.

My husband and I stopped by the Right Brain Brewery after dinner one night. First of all, it's totally tucked away. We didn't think we were in the right spot until we actually parked, entered the building and walked through the door at the end of the hallway. But I suppose that's part of its charm. Very cool art on... More

We stopped and had beers and lunch. The atmosphere is a lot of fun and you can tell that all the staff really enjoy their jobs. Beers were great and the food was a nice change from the typical brewpub foods. Highly recommended.

Very relaxing, fun place to spend some time. Pass the time playing darts or shuffleboard. Or just enjoy spending some times with friends, enjoying good beer. Will definitely be back!

Not only did the guys there get us some fantastic beer, they also hooked us up with some contacts on places to rent and told us a bit about the housing in... More

We had a tasting flight and the beer here is excellent. I couldn't even pick a favorite, because they were all so good. They offer a limited menu with sandwiches and snacks. We ordered chips and guacamole and that was tasty as well. The pub was spacious and was very comfortable on a Saturday afternoon. If you enjoy microbrews, try... More

Went on a weekday afternoon during happy hour. The beer is top notch- lots of choices for every type of preference. Bartenders are good and helpful. Plenty of close parking. New facility is spacious. Had a waffle sandwich- for $7 it was bland and small- we were unimpressed. Would recommend and return for a drink only.

A nice selection of micro brews on tap. Small food selection because there is no kitchen. But you go here for the beer. Big open space bar and seating area. You can also get a hair cut on your way in or out. There is a beauty salon in the front suite.

went at lunchtime, one other table of people in bar, three people behind bar, no one to wait on us. Yes we were standing at bar. Left Hungry, Thirsty, Disappointed. They may have the best beer in TC, but I'll never know.
