Reviews

Cool place for an up and coming brewery with a unique approach to beer. Check out the SSS or the Keen, though all of the beers are an interesting mix of herbs/spices and fruits. The whiskey barrel aged coffee beans are also worth picking for brewing at home.

I had the Prima #3 dark and Floridian. Very different beers, both very good. The place is not what I expected as it's on the 6th floor and they serve liquor as well. Almost no brewery feel to it all as it was jammed with the modern hipster. If that's your thing, this is your place

The keen sour is especially nice.
