Great selection of beer. I think there were 18 on tap. The area had plenty of parking. Nice barkeep as well.

Tried multiple crafted beers, all the beers were exceptional. Especially the red IPA, the beers were reasonably priced . Service was outstanding, our server was friendly and knowledgeable about each beer. Will be returning soon!!!

Craft beer lovers will fall in love with Independent brewing company! Killers beers, excellent venue, friendly staff, rotating food trucks. You can also bring your own food. Only con is that it’s so popular it’s usually crowded and loud.

Want a local brewery where you sample some of the freshest brewed beers - try Independent Brewery. Food truck cuisine is on the premises to provide a great menu of eats. The owners pride in their beer is evident.
