A fiend of mine told me to make this a must stop since I like good IPAs. I did and tried some of their beers. Great staff and a growing brand name. Beers were fantastic. Try the Hippie Kicker. Bit stout but very good. The Pope was a bit tamer but good too. I took a growler of this back... More

My husband and our adult son came here to celebrate his birthday. We have been here before. It is a fun place to come to as it is an actual brewery with a large glass wall where you can view the steel brew tanks. It had been a warm autumn day and we chose to sit on the patio partly... More

4 of us went for drinks and to watch the World Series. Service was fast and friendly. Sat outside on their patio which was really nice. Good martinis, price was fair. Appetizers looked good, will try next time I go.

I like the beer and food here. The beer is consistently interesting and the food is usually thoughtful and well prepared. In the past I've had some great food here. Lately the food has been good or very good. I went on a very busy Friday night and although it was busy and loud, we were seated rapidly and the... More

We have been here a few times, and I think overall we have had too many misses here to return. The last few times we have been, something has been wrong with our meal whether it was prepared incorrectly (got a well done burger when ordered medium) or something wasn't included that should have been. I do have to credit... More

The beer was very good. The food is like what you would find anywhere else. You have the fried appetizers, fried entrees, salads and pastas. I'm not saying it was bad, just nothing stood out as outstanding. I would come back again to try the rest of the beer I didn't get to taste.

We discovered this restaurant during a quick exploration of places near our hotel and chose it based on the bustle of diners in the outside patio areas. A quick look at the menu and the good impression of the hostess helped us decide to pick it for dinner. At 7pm, there was a 10-15 min. wait on a Tuesday night.... More

I go there often for lunch and find that I get great service and can watch any number of sporting events on their multiple TV's. Their many home brews are very fun to try out as they bring out new ones, although they keep the old favorites. The food is a bit heavy for my taste but is always good.... More
