My husband and I went here for a date night and have decided this is our new "go to" place. Great craft beer! Tried the Velvet Devil ( bourbon aged beer) and it was awesome! Enjoyed the atmosphere with a mixed age group! Definitely a great place!

While I am not much for beer, I can say that their Beer is pretty good. If you are not sure what you like just keep sampling, I am pretty sure you can find something you like. The food is also pretty good. We plan on going back and trying some other things on the menu. My only complaint would... More

The first visit to the new taproom and speakeasy was very pleasant. My group and I were greeted almost immediately once we grabbed a table in the speakeasy room. We were able to get drinks, menus, and then order our food right away. We were there at a less busy time, but as the night went on and more customers... More

Really good craft draft brew selection (ones you will not find at most other places), really good food and service. Try their large pretzel! Burgers and ribs are also well above "run of the mill". It is a bit noisy, but good vibe. Just wish they served wine or something for the ladies who are not into beer.

Love the beer. Love the food. Found the Speak Easy on our last trip - How cool is that I ask you? Cleverly hidden, wonderful space for a gathering of friends. Same food and beer menu as well as cocktails. We enjoyed our dinner out immensely. In particular we enjoyed the deep fried bacon, the yummy pretzel, bistro burgers and... More

No comment! My son and I walked into this establishment and stood for about 3 minutes then we politely seated ourselves only to wait 10 - 15 minutes... I was completely shocked that we were not acknowledged nor greeted... So we waited for 5 more minutes after this we left... I could not believe the service we did not receive....

If you haven't checked it out, you are missing out! They are not only making great beer but are now distilling vodka! Yummy! The food is also good and the atmosphere is laid back.

We keep making our way back to the new location. Best craft beer in town. The new location has a pool hall and pinball arcade, two large patios, and a speakeasy with cocktails. Ale's Kitchen has some amazing food. The pretzel, southern bbq poutine, black bean and quinoa salad, and the El Diablo Burger are some of my favorites.
