  • They do a fine job making beer, quite good actually. A bit pricey though. My main complaint is that the place is just boring. No ambiance, kind of sterile. Visited 3 times, always the same.  more »
  • They have really good beer. They also have a good variety of beer. It is a fun atmosphere with great service. They sometimes have food trucks but you can always bring in your own food.  more »
  • We have been going here since they opened. They serve great beer, 4-5 core, 4-5 specialty brews at any given time. Owners and staff are very friendly. They are always busy, but usually never an issue ...  more »
  • I've been to all the local breweries -- Emmetts, Scorched Earth, etc. so far Crystal Lake Brewery is my favorite. Their OKtoberfest is phenomenal
  • They try new brews often. The wine-beer was interesting. I enjoy their ambition to try new things and experiment.
  • I love this place!! I like having a drink with friends, but I hate the bar scene... this is totally different. Everyone is very relaxed. Never super loud (unless they have a band... then its extremely loud). I love that you can play board games and have food delivered; those two things make it an ideal place to hangout. Only downside for me is that I don't really like IPA's or super "hoppy" beers, so I am usually limited to their rotating menu (not their 4 main beers). So, usually when I have something I really like it is gone the next week for something new.
  • Good beer, laid back and a nice outdoor area
  • Great beer! Fun atmosphere
