What a nice place for a mid-afternoon stop. This brewpub has a lot going for it. Nice location, though street parking might be a problem during busier times; we didn’t see the parking lot. Blues music was playing throughout. There is a back room with bar games, shuffle board, darts, and bar billiards. There is also an outdoor beer garden out back. They have a small menu, pizza, sandwiches, and snacks. Service was good but we were the only ones in the place. They had 11 beers on tap during our visit; we tried the 6-beer sampler plus tried two other beers. My favorite by far was the Humulus Lupulus, a double IPA with high IBUs. This is a no smoking brewpub.

I have come here many times and was the place my father took me on my 21st birthday. The beer here is excellent I have not had a beer here that I haven't liked. This place can tend to get busy from time to time, I have had to wait to get a place to sit a few times I have gone here. Parking isn't usually an issue as there is a lot across the street. Unfortuneatly they no longer sell pint glasses with their logo on it anymore.

OUT OF TOWN VISIT TO THE PUB. SMALL LOCATION WE SAT AT THE BAR. THE BEER WAS TOP-NOTCH EXCELLENT. YOU CAN TELL THE BREWER REALLY CARES ABOUT HIS CRAFT. WE HAD PINTS OF THE VANILLA CREAM ALE - A++, 5 MALT ALE - AWESOME, AND SAMPLERS OF THE HONEY ALE AND HEFEWEIZEN. ALL VERY GOOD - AND HAD IT'S OWN UNIQUENESS SHINE THRU.

THE DOWNSIDE WAS THE SERVICE - AWFUL. IMMATURE BARTENDERS THAT CARED LESS FOR ANY RAPPORT WITH THE CUSTOMERS AND NEVER FOLLOWED UP WITH THEIR SERVICE. WHEN WE ASKED FOR WATER THEY GAVE US ONE CUP - THEIR WERE TWO OF US. WE LITTERALLY HAD TO WAVE OUR ARMS TO GET ANOTHER BEER.
WHEN WE ASKED, "WHO BREWS THE BEER?" THEY MUMBLED, "THE OWNER" AND WALKED AWAY. NICE. IT WAS NOT LIKE IT WAS BUSY. FOOD SLECTION WAS BASIC AND THE BUILING WAS NICE AND SMALL. I DIDN'T BOTHER TO ASK ABOUT THE HISTORY OF IT CAUSE I KNEW WE WOULD GET NOTHING.

GO FOR THE BEER - IT'S AWESOME, BUT DON'T EXPECT MUCH ELSE.
