This is the first time I actually lost money on a Groupon. We were the only ones in the brewery. The gentleman working the counter was nice, but disappeared after serving us our flight. I went back to the counter to order our pints of beer included in the Groupon and the server was no where to be found. Discouraged, we left. Beer overall was average.

Very small and personal brewery, friendly staff ( John ) was helpful and informative about beers and taste preference.

I am always ready to try new places to eat/drink. This establishment was worse than anyone could expect. The owner was the only one there when four of us walked in. Even at first he was not friendly, but the minute he realized we had a groupon he became very rude. The tone of his voice and short curt answers proved he did not like servicing clients with a groupon. His son ( i gathered from the conversation) walked in and took a case of wine. They started arguing over it n front of us and others that had been seated by then. The atmosphere in this place was so bad that we decided to leave not wanting to wast our time there. (Not to mention the beer was very distasteful leaving four near full glasses and 1/2 of our tasters) As we were leaving he came after and accosted us in front of his other customers, screaming that we had $60.00 worth of beer and only paid for half(referring to our groupon) and that we did not leave him an adequate tip. We are firm believers that a tip is earned, and believe me this person did not even earn a fraction of what we left. After witnessing his irate behavior at the end, and his interaction with the other customers and son, I am convinced that this man is not content with his business and/or life. My advice to fellow groupon friends is not to try this establishment.

It was very dirty and the men running it were very rude and not friendly at all. Another couple walked in and left quickly, was not a great experience at all.

The root beer stout was good. I heard ginger beer Best to have already eaten before coming here. I suggest you go to Prager Brothers Bakery. Try their cheese & olivar bread and take it to the brewery and drink the beer with it. It's in the same business building complex area.

Enjoyed the hour we sent at the small tasting room. The five beers we sampled were all great and we especially liked the root beer stout. The person working the taps was very friendly even getting us some complementary pretzels to go with the beer.
