Let;s see...a wide selection of beers that are all so hoppy that they are overwhelming, and after three sips all taste the same. A cold, noisy "barrelhouse", rude beer snobs working the taps, and mediocre food truck fare. So hipster, so boring.

I had heard alot about this craft brewery and their laid back attitude. Finding the place was interesting since the entrance is behind a shopping mall but getting there was half the fun. The tasting room is low key back among the beer barrels and tables are available inside or out. You place your order inside and pick up the... More

They have so many beers on tap all made at the brewery. The do flights of 5 so you can try a little of each. They also sell growlers. They have a big screen to watch sports. The beer is good.

This is a tap room setting, renovated from an old assembly plant.. Nothing fancy, but the variety and quality of the beer is bound to impress. They are very generous to allow tasting before your choice, and the sampler is a great way to try several. Food is very good for pub grub. The food truck outside does a variety... More

The space is spacious inside and out! Very laid back and inviting you to have a good time. And you will because the beer, and there is lots of it, is delicious and home made and the food hearty and delicious. We had the pretzels, a delicious New Orleans sandwich and wonderful bread pudding! Go visit!

Drake's tap room has a rotating beer list. They also have a food trailer, which seems to have a rotating menu of food items, which is also nice. Always a surprise what is available if you don't go regularly and often. Love to walk over with my dog Izzy and sit on the patio.

Great place to gather with friend for a cold beer. Food is limited, but they allow you to bring in food. Nice and friendly environment.

We love this spot! It's crackin on first Fridays and they have awesome food at the truck outside. Beers are awesome, and you can even reserve the back for parties. We had my boyfriend's birthday here and they blocked off a section and even put up the game on the projector.

If you are not a fancy-pants that needs a fancy atmosphere to enjoy great craft brews Drakes is your place. IPA's galore if that is what you are into, but we go for the Porters and Stouts which are amazing. Plenty of barrel aged beers and fun concoctions. Within the last year they got their own food truck on site... More
