This is a really fun place to check out, especially in the warmer weather, as they have a huge deck and outdoor "play" area with corn toss, bocci,etc. Even if you don't drink beer, they have a few basic wine choices. You are allowed to bring in your own food, or oftentimes, there are food trucks out in the parking lot.

We stopped by here for a tasting and were impressed with their beers. They had about 8 on tap, and you could do a flight for $8. They have a mix of types, from Ale to Stout to IPA to lager. All of them were easy to drink and quite good. The Vanilla Coffee Stout was a bit different than you find other places, the addition of the vanilla made it very smooth and easy to drink, without being overpowering. The American Ale is just one that you could take to a party and drink all afternoon. The place isn't overly large, the bar area is pretty tight, but they do have seating scattered across the room and also another room off to the side that opens it up. The staff was friendly as well. All in all, worth the stop, decent place and decent beers.

We recently visited this brewery while looking to kill some time before a wedding. We arrived around 4 pm in the afternoon and the place was packed. Whether it is from other tourists or locals, the place was packed. The key thing to know is that there is a back room that is a little more like cafeteria style room but it is able to house many more people. The front sitting room is certainly nicer, but it was great to have more space in the back. And the back room has a large projection screen with a sport on. They had a good beer selection which was tasty and well worth the cost. The porters and lager were both very nice and ones that I would recommend for full pints if you head there.

We had a great time at the brewery, we each had a flight of beers and took the tour. It was a busy place but we didn't feel slighted, the bartenders were great and made sure we knew all the beers we'd be sampling.

The beers are basic, but thats not a bad thing. The setting is welcoming, and the staff is very polite and caters to all your questions. The prices are very good. I am proud to have this as a local brewery.
