Awesome find. the IPA and Octoberfest I had were excellent. Can't remember the others but they weren't bad. A lot of people were there on a saturday afternoon, but the employees were friendly Even better, they fill other growlers! as long as they do this i will be looking for ways to come back here.

Just went to Hooker Brewing yesterday. Exterior is nothing remarkable (industrial office park), but that sort of lent to the charm of the place. Once inside, the gentlemen behind the bar welcomed us immediately. Great deal for a tasting: $5 for all you can drink. There was a good-sized group there for the all-afternoon tasting and it's a very informal atmosphere: the bar is just steps from the beer tanks and there is promotional material within site, so you know where you are :)

The four beers on tap were a Munich lager, a blonde ale, an IPA, and -- the truly astonishing find -- a watermelon ale. All four were very good, but the latter was outstanding. I've had other fruit ales and they hardly ever live up to their billing. This was the first time I'd been able to appreciate the refreshing apsects of the watermelon flavor and still say it tasted like beer. The IPA was my second-favorite; very hoppy, but not overwhelmingly so.

No food, as it's a brewery, but didn't miss it.

Will definitely make a return trip for one of the brewery's Friday-night pizza/beer 'extravaganzas'.

This was my first visit to Thomas Hooker Brewery. Two of my friends and myself drove over there one afternoon just willing to check out the beer from the source as none of us had ever had it before, we had wanted a true "tasting" of the beer. It was a great time. The brew master was joking with us the moment we walked in the door, and our guide Joe was also very friendly. They had four beers on tap, and got to sample as many as we wanted for five bucks.
Our guide was also level headed about other good beers and wasn't afraid to discuss other good brands with us. I found that on most tours the guide generally self-promotes and is unwilling to admit to other good beers. Another plus in my book was that the tour was very unscripted. He took us to wherever he wanted to go and seemed like he genuinely enjoyed beer and knew what he was talking about. All in all I'd have to say it was a great time!
