Loved this place. I wish I had more time to stay and sample everything. The beers were really good, tried a flight. Also got some cans to go. They have indoor and outdoor seating, no food but apparently they have food trucks. The place was across the parking lot from a doggy daycare, so lots of dogs were hanging out in the brewery when we arrived at the end of the workday on a Thursday. Young professional crowd, mostly- but everyone was friendly and welcoming.
I've been here one time and had a great experience. The atmosphere was fun and sociable. There was an outdoor area and plenty of room inside, many drink options, and they were celebrating May the 4th Be With You in true Star Wars style. People were dressed up and seemed to be enjoying themselves. Would definitely recommend it as an option for a night out.
