I'm not vegan, but I love this place. The sweet and hot Brussels sprouts are to die for, and the beer here is top notch. Really though, good food and good beer are relatively easy to find and somewhat subjective. What keeps me coming back...More

We went for dinner not knowing this is a vegan place. We tried a few craft beers which were pretty good. Didnt try the food, as we are not vegan. The people eating there seemed to be enjoying what they had. Great alternative place if...More

Pig Minds Brewing is one of our favorite places. They frequently come out with new brews and their vegan menu is an eye opener for those who think vegan means flavorless. Not only is the food delicious and the beer consistently good, the atmosphere is...More

I ate her at a high reccomendation from a friend. I am a real meat and potatoes kind of man, but tried vegan hesitantly. I ordered a Portobello mushroom burger. It lacked density and thickness, but had great taste. Sweet potato fries, and I forgot...More

It is a vegan restaurant. We tried their wings and it was tasty and had a taste similar to meat. We tried 10 types of beer (sampler) on tap. We finished off with a gigantic pretzel. It is a nice change and different atmosphere.

I'm sure a vegan may enjoy the menu, but being a "meat and potatoes" kind of guy not so much. We stopped in since we were in the area, and because we were hungry, we thought we'd give it a try. The beer was good,...More
