Quick stop just to try the place out. Warning, if you're in front of the building the brewery entrance is around back. We went through the locked entrance thanks to someone coming out but it made for a fun search. Staff was friendly and helpful....More

I had the Keltick milk stout, hopharvest ipa, and zombie pumpkin flesh. I loved all three and definitely can’t wait to go back and try some more. Great atmosphere and friendly staff round out the visit.

What a great concept. You mix the ingredients with help from the brewmaster, grind your own grain, and add whatever exotic taste he has on hand and make a batch. It sits for several months and then you bottle it yourself as well. It's Great....More

I've been here a few times and the staff is always friendly and knowledgeable. Great beers and I mean that. I'm a beer snob. This is a beer snob brewery. They have a variety of IPAs that are good, and black beers. I've not tried...More

8 micro brews on tap the day we visited .. Walked in the door and could smell the hops cooking . Brewers hard at work ! Beautiful interior , nice views of the waterfront and an outdoor patio ... Calypso creme was excellent !!

Rhodell has good beer, but it isn't always available. Most of the beer there is fine, but there are a few gems, like the Cherry or Blueberry Wheat.

Wow really like this place. The beer style selection is amazing. Probably 15 of more of their beers on draft as well as their own root beer and cream sodas on draft. No food, just bar snacks so eat before you come. The atmosphere is...More

The oldest existing micro brewery in the area. Still has the best craft beer around. Usually a dozen or more varieties to choose from on any given day. You can also brew your own as Rhodells is also a Brew-on-Premises, the only one in the...More
