Stopped here for lunch. Great location downtown and I thought the atmosphere was pretty good. Clearly the inside is older but it worked for me. I had a good IPA, "85" I believe it was called. It would have been nice to have at least 1 wheat beer. Hard to understand why a brewery wouldn't have some more options.
My steak burger was good and my wife had a veggie wrap she enjoyed. The service was excellent.

This location is awesome. However, the positives stop there. The inside feels like it hasn't been touched in decades (in the wrong way) and the menu is too big. Food is below average. This place could be really great if they put some work in.

Not a beer drinker so the review is based on the food which I found to be below average especially considering all of the dining options in town.

We stopped here for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. The menu was comprehensive with many choices. The wings were pretty good, fire roasted. Atmosphere is decent and is in an old, historic building with lots of character. Their beer is so-so and really nothing special, for a "brewing company". Their beer is all you get, so choose wisely. I suggest sampling first to be sure. The beer nuggets are pretty good apps as well.
