  • Overall: Good local brewery option, with games and a patio. The good: I only had the amber ale, but also tried the IPA, and both were very tasty. I don't think anyone was disappointed with their choices. The patio is a nice addition to the rest of the great atmosphere. Nothing too gimmicky or fancy, which is nice. Bring your own food - I'm always a fan. We got greasy pizza from down the street. Service was friendly and attentive. The not-so-good: Patio is a little cramped in terms of layout and space, but that's about it in terms of negatives. Atmosphere: 9/10 Service: 9/10
  • Great atmosphere. I came here with my mom and my wife on a Saturday night. It was much less busy than usual according to Google, probably because it was the same weekend as the Crystal Lake 4th of July festival. Large selection of in house brewed beer. "Interesting place," says my wife. I got the Beach Blonde which was light and refreshing. I will be coming back here!
  • Other than not seeming inviting, it was alright. Might try going back again.
  • This is by far my favorite place to come enjoy a few pints. The staff is always welcoming and friendly. The beers never disappoint and the atmosphere is great. Come by yourself and meet someone new or bring the crew and enjoy. You won't be disappointed!
