We went to brewery and house said closed at 10. 859 and doors locked . Clear lake seems to close early despite posted times. Would have liked to try and looked like fun place.

This brewery us so much fun. Sit outdoors if you can! The Master Brewer knows his business! Be bold and try the great offerings he has, especially the peanut butter!

So fun to try all the seasonal and specialty beers at Lake Time. Great location to walk to nearby restaurant OR order a pizza or pick up a dinner and bring it on in! So convenient.

Stopped at this brewery while on RAGBRAI this year, it was a great place for a meeting location since it was right on the route! They had more than 10 different beers to choose from. If you didn't find one you liked you weren't looking!
