“Great Concept and Great Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Whoever thought of this type of business is brilliant. This place is all about beer. That is their specialty and that is what they offer. From what I've seen they have a booming business and I'm not surprised. I'm more of a wine drinker but I do like an occasional beer, especially in the summer. I've been here twice now - both times to meet up with friends at their suggestion. The second time I was here I really took notice. Folks come in to sit down and have a beer and/or to fill up growlers to take home. There are different food trucks that seem to take turns parking outside and they offer good food. There is also at least one local restaurant (Avenue Bread) that delivers. I've seen folks with pizza too - not sure if they bring it or if it's delivered as well. The building is kind of small but in good weather they also have outdoor seating. The last time I was there I noticed a small bus stopping to pick up and let off people - looked like maybe college students. How smart is that - give young people a way to be transported directly to a brewing company? No drinking and driving which is obviously in the best interest of all. Love this place!

“Great new brewery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013 via mobile

Their IPA was great. I really liked that they had a family friendly area as well as a bar. They have different food trucks there each day. Very clever idea. Had a couple beers and took a growler home with us.

“Fantastic Find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

Didn't realize this was here - saw it on our way to Trader Joe's and decided to check it out. Great ambiance. The beers were tasty - only $6 to try them all.

“Nice addition a great local beer scene”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

Weekday lunch. The six beer sampler is great value at $6. The beers were all good (PA, D-IPA, IPA, Red Ale, Porter, Fresh Hope Pale Ale) but not exceptional. My fave was probably the Double IPA which isn't usually a style I love. Friendly attentive service. Wish there were more seats at the bar inside. Nice to sit outside on wooden picnic tables and eat from the adjacent food cart. Too bad the outside seating is right beside the road. The location next to Trader Joes is pretty handy for us Canadian Cheese/Milk Piranhas.
