Pulling up, it was a warehouse type atmosphere, right in the middle of an industrial park area. I like adventures and I hoped for the best though, and forged on. I was hoping for a brewery/pub place where I could get a sandwich, fries etc., and a few glasses of beer, but it was not that. When I walked up to the entrance ( big open garage door) They said they had a catering table with tex mex as far as food went .I paid the $10 entrance fee for the " tour" although I have been on lots of brewery tours, and had no interest in that, but no matter, that was how you got in the door. The $10 you pay ( credit cards ok) gets you a souvenir pint glass and a bracelet with three pints and a 1/2 drawn on it that they mark off as you get your glass filled . The half was for the new release that was going to be released that very night at 6 pm ... a double IPA. Now, that sounded good. 3.5 pints for $10 seemed like a good deal too . The food was provided by a local catering company that had two types of enchiladas, rice, beans, an iceberg lettuce salad and chips and salsa for $8.Being vegetarian, I was glad to hear one of the options was a cheese and onion enchilada. It was served from a few aluminum pans covered in foil, and they served it on a paper plate and with plastic utensils . It was actually OK taste wise, a bit like an average night's home cooked meal. The caterers were nice, local people... After a long day of flying , and taking into account that I was starving, I just went with it. I put my plate down in the space I found on the long community picnic table and went to get my first beer to wash down dinner. The atmosphere was very noisy and loud , a bit chaotic. People randomly saying things you could not understand on the microphone and muffled announcements. something about a pallet company and girls woo- hooing. a birthday song being sung to the brewer? who knows it all kind of blended together into this hum beacause the big tall warehouse did absolutely nothing good for sound. You could barely have a conversation with the person next to you over the din. It was warm and muggy inside but not too hot, big fans overhead were nice. A back patio for smokers. Walking up to the taps, I asked the guy what they were known for ( looking for their signature brew?) He said " beer" trying to be funny I think . I am pretty serious about beer so not laughing, I said "no, like the beer that you are best known for." and he said "we sell a lot of black lager I suppose ." Way to sell it! It was a humid hot Texas evening and the beer was only slightly cool. This particular beer tasted only OK.You can' t like everything and if they sell a lot of it, I just guess my palate is not set on what texans like. It was a bit watery. I figured I just chose the wrong one. Next glass I went with the Storm cloud IPA.This was not a hoppy or " traditional " IPA, but I liked it anyway, a tasty beer . Going back up for my third pint at around 6:40 I said "where is that double IPA?" ( wanting to try it) the guy looked at me and said "good luck getting some, the taps around the corner."It was 100% tapped out. In 40 minutes. I didn't get to try it. Oh well. went back for a third and final IPA and they said I could have the 1/2 glass of something else. Sat and drank the third beer and watched the place start empty out, had a feeling it was winding down. If there was any type of last call you would have never been able to hear or understand it. Before you knew it, a guy came by and said goodnight and cut my bracelet off. 1-2-3. I think it might have been 8:30??? called the shuttle and away I went . It was an OK , very average brewery experience. nothing special. I would NOT show up hungry. Supposedly Saturday is better, but I can only imagine it is more crowded.
