Right Brain Brewery offers a wide variety of craft beers to satisfy virtually any beer enthusiast. The staff is courteous and the space screams character. Few breweries offer a sit down location that remains true to their original vision, but Right Brain gets it right....More

Right brain is located in a residential area near rail road tracks. Not on any main drag. Hard to find, warehouse atmosphere, ok food. Was there with friends and family, only reason I would have went.

Liked the industrial brewery feel, but didn't love the beers at all. We got a flight, which also wasn't cheap, and they were all very hoppy.

A wide variety of beer available in this bustling brewery, food available too to make it a well rounded visit. My favorite is Blue Magic, definitely unique, easy drinking summer beer. Hubby loves the IPA, Willpower. Worth a visit!

WOW! I have had their dead kettle, so I wanted to visit the place... $187.00 later, I would say we had a great time! Great beer, try the Looping Owl and the deader kettle, and the burgers were very good.

We loved the beer here and the eclectic decor. However, the temperature inside was a bit warm and uncomfortable. The outside area was charming.

The afternoon ambience was not there. Place seemed "stuffy". Had ceiling fans but a few floor fans would have helped.

Was really looking forward to this stop but was not impressed. Line was super long to order food and beer at the bar. Burgers were decent at best. The beer was good but they don't have growlers. Seating was TERRIBLE! Many people standing around waiting...More
