Now is the time for all good bloggers to put down the beer and type some profound shit. Like how you got here at 8:10 and it was so fucking packed you only stayed for 15 minutes before you booked the hell out of there.
Kind of a testament to how good and popular and what a good customer following they had before they even had a brick and mortar taproom. Also a statement of how I dislike people. Even beer people when they are right on top of you. Not in a creepy stalker way, in a ‘there are so many people here they are breathing on me and I have to get out before somebody gets stabbed.’ Note: it would not be me that gets stabbed.
If you have been reading this blog for awhile, (that’s a joke, I know no one is reading this) you know that I am not very knowledgeable about beer, I mainly write about the experience at the brewery. What I can tell you about this beer is I like it. If it is on the tap list at a bar I will generally order it. Nice selection of styles and like most craft beer places are willing to pour you a half glass. Which is what happened the second time I went there. Of course I had to go back, going there opening night was just for bragging rights. The owners were there, so I had to go up and thank them for responding to my Instagram and show them that yes, I came back. Not sure if they cared.
Service was good, I had a half-pour of everything, even got some ‘on the house’. Overall a very pleasant experience. They have a kitchen, but it was so long ago I don’t remember if I got any food. Very narrow and hard to walk through since there is a row of tables next to the wall leaving a space of maybe 3 feet to walk through. Still, when I went there it was early days. I am sure as time has passed they have ironed out some of the kinks. All these pictures were taken opening night. Definitely would recommend.
Yes it’s this close to the subway. Convenient right?
