This was the first stop on our beer run. We were greeted by a very friendly bartender who described their beers. She was very nice and told us how their flight boards were made of reused boards from a neighbor. Cool! We were also greeted by 2 dogs, Snow and Otter. Really enjoyed the laid back vibe. Great location for games outside!

I get it, they are a brewery. Not so much a restaurant. The beer is excellent. The smoked beers were an interesting experience. Quite good. The food is, well, beer food. Good brauts and dogs. The serving area is a bit small, with hard surfaces, so can get quite loud. Overall one of the best breweries in Burlington, according to most locals.

One of many good stops on a beer tour in the Burlington area. Nice beer selection. Hot dogs and chili available. Inside and outside seating. Dog friendly. Young, friendly staff. Good stop on an organized or do it yourself tour. Plenty of parking, easy to find. Production tour available.

Very modern design. Open and bright. Outdoor section. I enjoyed their smoky flavors. Stopped here on a self- done brew tour. Fun place to hangout.

One of many very good breweries in the Burlington area. Got a flight of four and none disappointed. Also a dog friendly location. Was fairly crowded on a Saturday afternoon, but was still served quickly. There is also an outdoor area and limited food available.
