Half acre has some pretty good beer combinations and is in a great area to be. It's a bit too crowded for me, but they do have tasty beers and a dedicated growler/to go room

I'm not a huge micro beer fan, but this place is fun and once their other location opens and they start giving out more crazy idea brews, it will be a blast to come back here more often.

A great local brewery. They work on national exposure by going to festivals around the country, and my cousin had the Daisy Cutter in Denver, and knew all about this local gem. We made the errors, and found the taproom. A nice menu of light...More

Visited Half Acre numerous times in the past to try non-publicly released offerings of their craft. This trip was the first since they established their food menu and wasn't let down. Menu isn't large as its captured on essentially a bifold pamphlet but captures all...More

If you've had Half Acre's beer before then it is worth a visit and if you haven't it's a great place to try it for the first time. Food selection isn't super expensive but everything is great.
