FELT RUSHED TO GET IN AND OUT
Mar. 2021
My husband and I have wanted to try this place for a long time but with Covid there were restrictions. We finally stopped here in March right after work.

First off it is in the weirdest place in the very very back of a building complex the very last space in the building way down in the corner. When we arrived there was no parking everything was taken and the offices near 12 Gates all looked empty so not sure where all the cars were for.

We walked in was a neat looking space but smaller than what I had imagined, however I am sure they had taken some tables out for Covid reasons as they were pretty spaced out. We grabbed a high top table in the corner near the restrooms, was quaint. We had April H as our server she was efficient and waited on us right away, suggested a beer for my husband to try as we had never been here and they have beers they only sell at their location. She suggested wicked tripa, ok he loved this beer however it has an alcohol content of almost 10% WOW, so you can't have too many or you will be on your butt pretty quickly. She was nice enough to let us know that it would be cheaper for us to buy a 4 pack we could drink at the Table which is $19.99 versus paying $8.50 a glass. So that was what we did and we brought 2 home.

My only issue was April made us feel like it was time for us to leave..........after we bought the 4 pack and he had 2 beers and she seen more and more people coming in the door she kept asking do you need anything else, can I bring your check ? It was almost like ok I need to make more money so I need to flip your table. Made me feel uncomfortable and that I was being rushed not a good feeling. She was the only waitress in the entire place so every table was hers to wait on so I am sure she makes good money there. I seen 8 tables and there was also a rail by the one wall you could sit in front of and room to put your drinks on the ledge,

The bar did have dividers in between every 2 guests, not a prettiest they were just 2x4's nailed together holding the divider, however at the very end of the bar there was 5 guys jammed in the one divider. I understand that people are sick of the whole Covid thing but I am always conscious of those around me and follow the rules, nobody is immune from this virus yet.

It was our first experience, if I did return it would probably just be for beer to go, as I did not see an outdoor patio, I did see 2 picnic tables but I think those were from businesses who used to be back there for the workers to enjoy in the summer. It was just ok in my opinion

It was a cool place to try we were there about an hour and a half and by the time we left the place was busy totally full and had a waiting list.

First time here, went for lunch. Really enjoyed the beer- highly recommend the “resting peach face”. Appreciated the friendliness of the waitress and willingness to let us try different offerings. Menu isn’t huge (could be due to COVID?) but what we got was good. Liked the atmosphere. Kind of an odd location in the back of an industrial park- but don’t let that put you off. It’s worth a visit.

Great diversity of beers, fairly extensive pub menu of food, great waitress and decent seating options. If you go don’t be turned off by the tired light industrial park they are in.

Fun Place

The place was packed on a late Friday afternoon. A great variety of beers were available. I enjoyed the Hazelnut Brown Ale and then the chocolate coffee stout. Others in my group tried flights and all passed favorable comments on the various IPA’s they tried. There is a small food menu supplemented by a chalk board special. Food was passable. Peanuts in the shell were also available to munch on.

We stopped by to have lunch and fill an afternoon. What a wonderful surprise to see all the menu items, artisan foods, great specials. We all ordered different flatbreads which were all great. Took a couple six packs back to our hotel and enjoyed around the firepit. Fabulous stop. Will go back if we return to the area. Huge military discount added! Thank you 12 Gates

Loved this place! Staff friendly, prices reasonable. Great selection!
Definitely recommend. Great for out of town travelers also, since it is close to the airport.

We met friends here for the first time and enjoyed the experience. Finding the Brewery in the office park is a little challenging - look for the black sandwich boards complete with 12 Gates and arrows.
I had and liked the Coffee Porter and my mate (a Corona girl) greatly enjoyed the Phoenix Pils.
The food menu is limited - no deep fried fare such as fries or wings - but we enjoyed all that we ordered. That included a traditional style flat bread pizza, reuben sandwich (which I thought was especially good) and loaded taco chips. As a side we had taco chips with spicy salsa and queso cheese dip. The chips were warm and very good and while the salsa and cheese came in quite small cups the waitress happily gave us more when asked.
There was a tent and picnic tables set up outside on the parking lot and while it would have been entertaining to have landing jet aircraft pass over only a few hundred feet above we chose to sit inside.
The decor is, I guess you would say industrial, and we found it comfortable enough.
The staff were friendly and accommodating - we will return to sample more of the large selection of brewed beers there another time.

Each time we come here we are not disappointed! The Cuban sandwich is one of the best in the area that I have had. Their addition of flat break pizza's to the menu is a good one. The Rueben Flat bread did not disappoint! Great beer selection, but my favorite remains the West Coast IPA!
Bartender there was very personable, he told us about the new beers they have and allowed us a taste of the before ordering.

A local brew pub that really stands out in an area of outstanding microbrews . The ambiance is laid back ,the flat breads are great but the beer takes top billing . Everything is good but the west coast IPA is great
