“Right place at the right time”
Reviewed January 23, 2014

I was at a gallery picking up work, and discussed the new place across the street. Hey, it looks like the lights are on...Is it finally open? So we went to see. as luck would have it, it as the day they opened: a soft-opening so to speak, they just opened the doors, with little adverts, little announcing. So we were one of the first couple clients. Cool! got to try the beers of course! Got a sampler, tried 4 different ones. wasn't bowled over by the Belgian ale, but the next three, a smoky porter, coffee stout, ipa were all really good, worth trying on a larger scale in the next visit. we also tried the charcuterie tray, and it was stellar, truly great combination of meats and cheeses. definitely check it out. They have a wine menu, where they pair certain wines with certain foods. My sister had a red wine recommended by the bartender, and was very pleased.The co-Owner came by- a bushy bearded fellow - definitely looked like a brewer! Very cordial, willing to chat, which i thought was awesome. Made a great first impression. He noted that he had put up some sound baffles to control the noise, so that it could be a conversational place, where one won't have to yell, and is considering putting up more. Nice to see he is concerned about such things. go check it out. I think the beer is competetive with any of the other brewries in town, and elsewhere.
