Was here for part of the St. Patrick's Day pub crawl in downtown Mason City. Place was very crowded. The "menu" is written on the wall in chalk and with the crowd and light coming it through the front windows I had difficulty in trying to read it at the angle I was standing at when I got to where you order your beer.

I told the bartender that I wanted something with a low IBU number. He laughed and said he was going to give me the strongest stuff they they had. I said "no thanks" and thought he was joking. He wasn't. It had a "bite" and a citrusy/spicy taste that was overpowering. I could barely drink it. People at my table tried a sip and said it was nasty.

Checked the web site and found out it was their "Traction IPA" with an IBU of 81, the highest IBU they offer. Bartender probably thought he was being funny, I didn't. Won't be back after this experience.

Hi. I'm sure it was crowded, loud and I just didn't hear your order correctly. There's no way I would give a customer the exact opposite of what they would order. It doesn't make sense. I hope you give us another chance. Thanks.

Nice small scale brewery. Normally open after 5:00, but was open this Saturday for Dogtoberfest, where customers could bring their dogs. Tried the milk stout which was very good. In addition to their beers, they also had a selection of bottled ciders.

We visited 7/13/17 Nice little brewery, I would think it could get quite packed during their busy times. We really enjoyed trying all their brews. I don't believe there was one beer we didn't care for. Definitely worth a stop.

Tried several beers using a "flight". Found a couple I liked and enjoyed them. As they rotated beers some I didn't care for and lately they seem to have "stagnated" in their beer choices. Used to frequent regularly but not quite as often now.

Due to the small size of the room it gets crowded fast if busy.

I thought this place was nice but the space was very small. It seems like a "regular" hangout since people were looking at us when we walked in; we were in town from Mpls and they obviously knew we didn't live in town. Beer was good.
