A: Showed up for the Grand Opening of the new taproom which is located across the street from the bus stop and parking garage for the Sounder train. The location is genius. If they work it right they can be the afterwork beer destination for thousands of people who arrive at the bus/train stations in the evenings after a long days work and ride home. I know if I were still taking the train I wuld be walking across the street before I ventured home. As far as the local inside it is rather spacey and raw. Plenty of space for them to grow. Very much an emptied out warehouse. The front door is a garage door which can be opened/closed depending upon the weather. Inside is a long odd/U shaped bar. Starting at the bar and working its way around to the back wall. It was very busy on this day. I can see seating will need to be expanded as it was standing room only on much of the time I was there. I went back for the IIPA release and it was less and stuck around for awhile.
Q: The Wingman beers I have had to date range from poor, average and fair.
S: The guys all seemed nice enough and all seemed to be enjoying what they do
S: If I recall there eight to ten handles ond a randall on this day. Everything from IPA's, Porters and a Dubbel. Not bad for a new opening and new brewery.
F: No food here but Barrel 51 BBQ? is now operating outside. I wish these guys luck.

I love this place. I love the whole in a warehouse feel that this brewery brings. I know its not big and elaborate like the big breweries in this area, but this place has a lot of character, good beer and very friendly service.
They are a pretty new brewery so the selection isn't huge yet, but they have 8 beers or so on tap. Which is just perfect for the size of the brewery.
There is no food, but several places around deliver. All the beers are reasonably priced (I believe it was 3 or 4 per pint.) And all of the beers taste great.
