We stumbled (not literally -- it was still pretty early) onto this great little Brew Pub after having a late lunch at Dharma Blue (always good) two weeks ago. Our second visit to the tasting room this weekend was just as great as our first.

I don't think they are using plastic glasses anymore - it seems all beers come in either the souvenir pint class ($11 for two beers and you keep the glass) or the bock comes in a brandy like sniffer that you don't get to keep.

They have a wide range of beers - something for everyone and you can get a complete tasting flight -- but that isn't well promoted, so be sure to ask specifically for it. My one suggestion would be to have the prices and options posted more prominently. Growler prices are easy to find, but other options not so much.

Danma11's description of the pub is spot on -- love the barrel tables. There is also a large glass window and door that lets you see the tanks and workings of the brewery. There are a few tables outside as well that could benefit from some umbrellas for us sun sensitive types.

Great Beer, Great Selection, Great location, Great Service -- what more could you ask for?

This place is a small pub with a pirate theme. The "tables" are barrels and there's plenty of touristy things and you can clearly see right into the room where the vats of beer are. Wish there had been some light food options like fries or chips, just to make it a little more social. It's a fun place to drink socially on a rainy afternoon with friends. Go for the souvenir glass as it's only .50 more than the plastic cup of beer - wish I had known before I answered.

Our bartender was friendly enough (though she seemed overwhelmed with the crowd that appeared throughout the day). The place is a little too "touristy" what with the t-shirts and polos and everything. I also wish they would list their beer from lightest to darkest on the board they have up.

Another tip is, if you're not in the drinking mood, try their home brewed root beer or creme soda. I'm normally a root beer guy and not a creme soda guy - but man, drinking the creme soda was like drinking smooth vanilla ice cream - it was so delicious! I loved it.

We're definitely heading back the next time it's a good day for a few drinks.
