Little Fish is an offshoot of local favorite Jackie O's as one of the former brewer's opened this brewery. The brewery is very similar to some breweries I visited in the Portland, OR area - with a corrugated building housing the brewery and a relatively small tasting room. The brewery does not serve food but has a rotating food truck located just outside most days. There is also outdoor seating when weather is permitting.

I visited during the summer and really enjoyed a ginger ale and cucumber ale, both non-alcoholic but extremely refreshing on a warm day. They had 6-8 beers on tap when I visited with a sour, which I am not usually a big fan of actually quite memorable. They also had quite a good IPA and stout, can't recall any of the beers being particularly bad.

Really enjoyed the visit as the staff was quite enthusiastic about serving the sampler and explaining their inspiration behind each beer.

Little Fish occupies a tall one-story, stand-alone, corrugated steel building with a retractable windowed garage door in front. There is dedicated parking in front. On the side of the building is a fenced grass patio area. Outside are several wooden picnic tables, a fire pot, and a playground, as this brewery is very kid-friendly. Inside, the warehouse style building echoes with happy conversations, overwhelming the soft background music. One wall has a low chalkboard for children the draw on. The floors are concrete and there are hanging lights and fans from the high metal ceiling. The air is humid from a day of brewing, and there is the characteristic malty aroma of a working brewery. There are communal wooden picnic tables along the walls and a central 9-stool bar with a polished stainless steel top. Behind the bar is a huge chalkboard with descriptions of all their beer. The trapezoidal wooden tap handles project from the wall of the large cold room behind the bar. The one brewery is to the right of the bar, and has midsize stainless steel brewing vessels along the side wall. In the center are midsize stainless steel fermenters and racks of barrel aging beer. Near the garage door is a large wooden foeder for their farmhouse style beer. They have 12 house beers on tap, which are available by glass, sampler flight, or growler. These span an impressive range of styles and are typically bold and flavorful. Any craft beer enthusiast is sure to find something delicious, and my favorite was their lemon infused house IPA. The staff is cheerful and attentive. They do not have a kitchen, but a food truck is usually parked out front in the evenings. Little Fish opened on 2015 and is doing well. The place seems quite popular with the locals and I enjoyed my visit.
