On a co-worker's recommendation, I went to check this beer out. Lines to pick up a case or three were out the door, and they ran out completely while we were there. We did get to sample before that - and it was pretty good.

Great little micro brewery. Nice sample and you could see and watch the whole production line. They are very proud of their uber hoppy beer :)

Excellent beer, friendly staff and easy to get to location. Only thing better would be more beer varieties, like they had when the restaurant was open.
