The Neighborhood Reception: Google Reviewers generously awarded the new brewery a minimum of four stars across over 20 reviews. Most diners praise the rooftop bar and the "cozy attic feel" of the upstairs area. Despite the fact that the prices tend to fall "a bit on the steep side," visitors to the brewery disregarded the price tag in favor of the setting and welcoming atmosphere. [Google Reviews]

The Forced Flight: Guests aiming to try a selection of beers through flights were dispirited to learn that the sample's selection fell into the hands of the brewery, and not the guest. One Yelp reviewer states that they were "extremely disappointed" with the lack of choice and that placing the lineup in the hands of the house does not "make sense from a customer[']s point of view." Another user chastised the IPA-heavy flight she received and questioned the brewery's reasoning: "Is this because they are no longer a craft place but now owned by the big dog InBev?" [Yelp]

The Food News: Guests that chose to dine at the new brewery generally liked the food menu. Favorites like the steak nachos, pub-house burger, and variety of pizzas (available in gluten-free versions) charmed diners with their moderate price points. While one Facebook user deemed his culinary experience as "rather bland," most were content with the flavors and ingredients utilized by the kitchen. [Facebook]

Suggestions: In a brief write-up from Zagat, it was suggested that diners explore both the "cavernous" and "mod-industrial" space and its menu. The noteworthy selection of "elevated bar food" like the coconut-curried hummus and butternut squash-goat cheese pizzas ups the brewery's food game beyond a typical outpost of a franchise. [Zagat]
