Walking up to the tap room is an adventure. You get a sense of the volume of beer they distribute from this mid-west location. The tap room overlooks the production facility and they give tours every hour on weekends. Food is fresh and delicious. Many seasonal draft beers you can't get in bottles or cans. Love the on- site store where you can grab a t-shirt or a growler to go.
I love coming to this place. It has a really nice low key vibe with a few extras that make coming to this place special. As the previous reviewer mentioned, there's often a magician as well as live music. If you're not afraid of sharing a picnic table and making new friends, this place is for you. The food and drinks are cheap and the Hogunitas is of the chizzzzay. It's their take on a cuban sandwich and it's warm, savory, and the break has the perfect amount of crispiness to it. Also, the mussels here are pretty awesome. They're always huge, never fishy/dry, and no matter what the rotating broth is, it's good. Trust me.
My only complaint: why or why are you only open until 9PM? Do you have early curfew too? I'd ask for an extension, Lagunitas :)
