This might be confusing since Tripadvisor seems to have this place listed both as a restaurant (which it is now that they offer food) and as an attraction. This is a very open and friendly brewpub with lots of activities like game night, comedy shows,...More

Went to Fullsteam brewery with the family. Not overly crowded with the exception of the bar area which was full due to the hot weather. There is a large sitting area adjacent to the bar with fans that has plenty of seating. The beer selection...More

I loved that you could get a half pint. I enjoyed the three beers I had a lot and I really liked the atmosphere. Nice merchandise too!

I stopped in for a quick beer this evening and was glad to see a variety of beers on tap. Very friendly staff. Fun and relaxed atmosphere. The paw paw sour, Humidity Pale Ale, and Working Man's Lunch chocolate brown ales were all good beers.

I was visiting my daughter in Durham and stopped in for a beer. OK, I stopped in several times. Very fun local brewery, tasty brew, friendly and knowledgeable barpersons. I just kept coming back, don'tcha know. Ping-pong, darts, games, beer. Somebody stop me.
