This taproom was hopping when we arrived at around 1:30 on Saturday afternoon. They were close to capacity and there was an appropriately bearded man at the door keeping count of people entering and leaving to make sure they didn't break fire code. For such a new brewery, these guys are packing the place and selling a lot of beer! They have no food, but encourage you to order pizza or bring in some food from local vendors like Anchor Fish and Chips. In the past I've heard of the taproom pretty much selling out of beers, but this particular day they had 4 different beers on tap, sold in short (8-10 oz), regular (16 oz) or tall (20 oz) glasses. You had to line up at one end of the bar to get your beers since they apparently aren't supposed to serve "over shoulder." This does keep it a bit more manageable for the servers, but waiting in line is kind of lousy and crowded.

The room itself is spacious (though full of people!) and has lots of seating at the bar and around the center and edges of the room. They have some crazy mixed-media artwork on the walls that seem to meld freaky paintings with brass or bronze sculptures. I think I saw a Jake Keeler fish mural in the back somewhere. The back of the bar is a work of art in itself, combining layers of rough timbers with sheets of copper, steel and other metals. The bar top is one huge plank of solid wood and has some serious mass to it.

I tried three of the four beers they had on tap, and all were good. My favorite was a Coconut Milk Stout that was very well balanced with subtle coconut flavor. The Matchbox Coffee Porter was also very good, but a hint too astringent from the roast malts. They also let me sample their IPA which was made with Nugget and Chinook hops--not surprisingly it was pretty bitter and strongly flavored. From what I hear, the brewery aims to keep making small and different batches, more like a brewpub typically does. This is good if you like variety, but sad if you find one of their beers that you love and may never see again! Overall I found their beers to be the most solid of all the new taprooms.
