Once upon a time I would only go here in a pinch. The beer was dire, unfinishable quite often, the food was decent but not good value for money. The only thing going for the place was the ambience. Then the guys from Blue Mountain took over, revamped it, and now it is one of my go-to places in... read more

Easy to make reservations coming in from out of town. Food was delicious and served appropriately. Didn't feel rushed. Beer was outstanding, particularly the porter! Dessert was peach cobbler-wouldn't recommend. All else was great! Staff was super.

The beer is great, always delivers. The food is a gamble never had the same quality with the same entree and honestly always underwhelmed, don't expect to find your fav of anything but the place looks great and the drinks are good

I stopped at many of the local breweries during our visit and this beer was my favorite. I sat at the bar and all of the bartenders were very attentive as well as informative. The atmosphere is clean and contemporary. If you're a beer lover make sure this is one of your stops while in town.

Let's start with the beer. I had a couple different ones; a bock and an imperial stout. Both were very, very good. The bock had a great flavor and perfect aftertaste. The stout was rich and fulfilling (and made a great 'dessert'). These folks know their beer, and it's worth a stop just for that. The food was better than... More

The beer was good at this brewery, our last stop on a tasting tour. We only had appetizers, and the food was fine. Busy tonight, so we sat at the bar.

My husband and I stopped in here for the large beer flights after a day at Monticello. We sat at the bar and were greeted warmly and immediately pulled into the fun atmosphere the staff naturally created. We both did the full flight of 12 beers and I really only remember one that we were not fond of. My fav... More

Excellent choices of beer. Good selection of food and well made. Noise level is atrociously loud. Décor is stark with brick and hard edges, which adds to the noise problems.

Set in an old warehouse, there is a brewery, bar and lots of table to eat and feel comfortable. There is a nice beer selection all brewed on the premises and above average bar food selections. The shopping area is a short walk.
