Craft breweries need three things to be five star for me. The styles of beer they offer needs to cover a wide range. The atmosphere has to be fun and enjoyable. The servers have to know their stuff and share it with enthusiasm. 515 delivers...More

Stop number two on our recent brewery tour. Bicyclist friendly, spacious and a good number of brews made onsite and locally. Water available without having to be served - great convenience!

Very interesting and well crafted beer selection. Great selection of beers you wouldn't find at a typical brewery. Cool atmosphere, and nice and casual.
