Being a beer person, I try to stop in tasting rooms whenever I can. Nice to see that Lowell has a fine addition to the world of independent craft beers. I enjoy ales so I was particularly pleased. Tough to find but worth the visit.

The location is a little hidden, but the awesome beers made up for it. The staff were great. It’s a really nice place to hangout and they always have different types of food trucks there. Highly recommended!

Stopped in early on a Saturday evening, sampled a few IPA's, all good. Sat and had a nice fresh IPA, spoke with other folks there, and it is DOG FRIENDLY! Lots of pups! Great spot, but get there early! Usually food trucks outside as well...More

Stopped here on the way home from NH. The tap room was small, but bubbling with activity. There was live music and the taps were flowing. Had a great winter warmer. Plus the brewery is in a building with tons of artist studios so if...More

Navigation Brewing is a winner! The taproom is industrial cool! The beer is outstanding. I really enjoyed the Stout. My sister loved their IPA. The venue has both indoor and outdoor seating with plenty of parking. I will be back soon!

Tried Navigation over the weekend. The IPA was good. My brother had the stout which was also good. The tap room was small but didn't feel cramped. I would stop there again.

Old mill building housing a local craft brewery and tap room. Happy dogs on leashes hanging out with their owners. What's not to like (if you can find it; use GPS or good directions).

Not easy starting a brewpub today. Lots of competition and expensive. These guys are the little train that could....and did. Never had a bad beer here. Fresh and delicious. And kinda love the setting. Great beer. Nice people. And often a food truck. What's not...More

Limited choices, overpriced beer in plastic cups. Local people seemed nice with a nice young lady working at the bar but I would say the reviews were written by people that have not been to many brewpubs.More

Sorry you feel we're overrated. Unfortunately our options are limited due to demand. We work hard to ensure our patrons drink fresh beer and they do a great job on cleaning us out weekly. We continually rotate our offerings, maybe your next visit will be...More
