I've been to a lot of breweries and bars and this one didn't really stand out as unique. It wasn't a bad place to sit down and drink a cold beer and maybe grab a bite to eat, but it wasn't a place that I'd highly recommend to friends or family. If you have been to a handful of pretty good local breweries wherever you are from, then you've had this experience.
Location: It's right off of I-25, around 5 miles or so north of downtown. It's not exactly simple to get to as you have to get off the interstate and take a frontage road. Then it's also tucked behind a building and then you have to drive into a parking lot that appears can be fenced off once the restaurant is closed.
Food: I had the open faced enchiladas which were reasonably priced at $12. I wasn't impressed with the presentation. I had to dig the enchilada out of layers and mounds of beans and cheese which covered the entire plate. I was able to enjoy a decent enchilada after I scraped off these extra layers with a knife and a bulldozer. This reminded me of ordering a mexican dish at your typical mexican restaurant. What is it? Combination 7: Enchiladas with a mountain of extra stuff no one wants to eat.
Beer on tap: It appeared they had a wide variety and I chose a Belgian Ale. Prices seemed reasonable. Everyone knows what to expect from a brewery and I'm not a beer expert.
Atmosphere: This was nothing extraordinary, but did seem popular and a fun place to unwind. I did note the place was crowded and they do have outdoor seating. However, the view is the parking lot and another building.
Service: Everyone was friendly and helpful and I didn't have any issues with long waits.
Summary: It's not a bad place if you want to stop by and grab a beer. The location isn't good and the food is just average bar fare.
