This brewery just opened two weeks ago, so my wife and I put it at stop #2 on our 4-stop pub crawl this day. Consequently, we didn't want to drink much, so we had just a flight ($8) of 5 of the 15 beers that were available (plus we added two more samples). The brewery is on the main street in this tiny town, and we arrived in mid-afternoon so it was not busy. The interior is an average-looking pub setting with a long bar and a number of tables/chairs. A large window behind the bar allows a good view of the spotless stainless-steel equipment. The beers are listed in three tiers and are priced accordingly ($4-$6) along with the serving size (12 oz.) for the stronger beers (16 oz. for the other pours).
We liked each of the 7 beers that we sampled. The IPA had a slight butterscotch after-flavor (diacetyl?) as a flaw, but my wife could not detect it like I did, so it is a minor issue. Each of the beers was brewed fairly close to style, so for being a new brewery, the brewer has the beers dialed in about right. Some tweaking is likely to occur and improvements made, so future visitors should have a treat in store. Although none of the 7 beers that we sampled were able to knock our socks off, I'll still give the beers an overall grade somewhere between a B and C.
We did not try any of the food, and we didn't see any being ordered by any of the other patrons, so I can't comment on the eats, other than to say that there are 4 sandwiches on the menu, plus 3 snack plates.
Before writing this review I checked the brewery's website again for some details, and I noticed that they just opened a beer garden, which must be behind the brewery because the pub is in a storefront setting with other businesses on both sides of it. I'd go back here someday just to sit in the beer garden and drink some more of their beers.
