“Loved the Beer Flight”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

We liked the small venue and the beer tasting. The only thing is that there is no food really only some snacks they sell, but you can bring in food which I would recommend.

“Awesome "Taproom"”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

There is a reason that Drakes Brewing refers to their taproom as a "Barrel House" and that is because their patrons sit in their warehouse location amongst the various future offerings that are aging in barrels. It's a really cool environment to have a few beers...something about all the barrels just lends a cozy feel to this place. It was pretty chilly out on the day we went, but luckily they had some nice space heaters to provide warmth. There are benches for seating as well as tables and stools at the bar itself. These guys have a pretty awesome tap list. Other than their regular offering which include a very good india pale ale and double india pale ale, they seem to keep on various barrel-aged offerings at any given time which is a really nice luxury for the beer nerd. We tried various barrel-aged beers and all of them were very enjoyable. The only food available here is mixed nuts and pretzel and local beef jerky that comes in various interesting flavors which was enjoyable. Definitely a must-hit spot for those who enjoy craft beer if you find yourself in the area.
