This place is definitively unique, the atmosphere is completely different from other places. They have many varities of really good beer and wine. Also ,the food is really good and perfectly pair up with whatever you're eating. I recommend this place to beer lovers.

Look, you cannot deny that the venue is amazing. Kid and pet friendly with games, plenty of seating, good drinks, and the food looks like it has potential..., but that is where the problem occurs. We arrived on a beautiful, sunny, weekend day. This was our first visit and were trying to figure out the restaurant protocol for a late... More

We had a group of six family members to meet here. I had the Cooper beer from the bar until we had a table. We found a table after a few minutes of looking. It was a little loud there for a while but the noise level decrease later. All the staff was great. My wife and I order the... More

I found this place on accident returning from a business trip. It was 10 min from CLT airport and I had 2.5 hours to kill. It was a sunny day, so I enjoyed two amazing craft beers while sitting outside in the sun writing my report. I saw families with children and lone persons such as myself. I liked this... More

My wife and I recently met friends there for dinner on a Friday evening. We inside and that meant we had a waitress. They offer a wide variety of beer, needless to say. In addition, we each enjoyed the variety of wursts on the menu with a nice selection of sides. The grounds were filled with couples, as well as... More

Tour by Josh was excellent. My favorite beer is the Heffeweissen. However all were amazing - including the Dunkel. The Spicy sausage and Kraut were also excellent. Atmosphere is cool. Wait staff were great. Wonderful experience all around
