The owner did a simply superb job on rennovating this local landmark, and making it a full-on microbrewery. So far, the beer choices have been great, and everything I've tried (four brews so far) have been wonderful.

Make sure if you visit you take the time to vist all three levels of this beautiful building.

The place is certainly busy, and I hope it stays that way. The help is all wonderful, and very accommodating. Although typically not really a place for kids, we did bring ours along, and they had bottled soda (some unique flavors), and that kept them interested.

They do serve some limited snacks, but do encourage patrons to bring in food from any of the many (very) local establishments.

Definitely make a point to stop here!!

My husband and I went to this amazing brewery last night and had a really great time. I love beer, and this place does not disappoint. We had a groupon for a flight of 10 beers, and we both REALLY liked the majority of the German beers that they have on draft. We Loved the Vargricka, Hefeweizen, and Dunkelweizen. I don't know why there were poor reviews regarding the wait staff/bartenders, because we thought they were awesome! They were a lot of fun and very friendly. The place is very cool to say the least as well. A lot of painstakingly detail was put into the renovations of this brewery. Even the bathroom is cool! We met the owner and he was super, super nice. He even went out of his way and took us on a personal tour of his brewery. My husband and I were both thoroughly impressed-- regarding the renovations of the building and the generosity that he bestowed upon us. We are nobodies and he treated us like old friends. You don't see that very often. This place has my highest recommendation, and we will definitely go back!!

I'll confess to being more of a sweet cider or mead fan but recently have discovered there are some beers out there that I will drink. I found that out at brewery beckers a few months ago and despite the hour drive have come back a few times, to fill up a growler of beer (considering what I pay for my small bottles of good mead, crazy cheap deal). They have beers of all types and change them out as they go through them, my favorite being the vargdricka, has a spicy flavor to it and very little of that bitter beer taste I don't like. I had the braggot this last visit which is the vargdrika brewed with honey (warning, that jumps it up to 16%) which I loved. I also liked the saison and the jormungandr . I recommend telling a waitstaff what type of beer you like and trusting their choice, they'll give you a little sample fist, so no risk there.

The building is beautiful, and there is a great atmosphere to the place, this isn't a watering hole or a bar to get drunk, It's clearly a place to experience beer. Relax and savor it for its unique qualities. The last time I was there they had a bunch of boardgames out for people to play while drinking, encouraging you to hang out. I think this is awesome, it's like a coffee shop, but with beer. Brilliant!

My husband and I, along with another couple visited this establishment after a nice dinner in Downtown Brighton. We are all beer lovers and were super excited to check this place out. The building was STUNNING - the renovations they did were amazing and it had a really cool old Irish Pub feel to it. That's where the good review ends. We sat down, waited 10 minutes for someone to come over and when she did she practically threw 2 menus at us and stood there waiting to take our order. We didn't even have a second to look at the menu and she seemed annoyed when we started asking a few questions about the beer. Most of the beers were over $8 per pint so I asked if we could sample something - she snapped there were no samples and when I offered to pay for a flight of beer, she acted like I shot her dog. My friend and I tried the shandy which tasted like cleaning solution and we couldn't even drink it. She never came back until we decided we had enough and wanted to leave. She never questioned why we had 2 full beers still sitting there and again, threw our tab at us. It was so sad to have such a cool concept for a building/brewery and then have it completely ruined by the worst waitstaff and lack of something as simple as selling flights. If you're going to invest that much money in renovations, it's time to invest in better staff and menu options (i.e., flights) and better tasting beer so your business doesn't tank. Unless those things change, we'll never be back and we'll continue to share with anyone who asks how awful this place was.

Break it down, People. Historic restoration leading to an outstanding atmosphere...fabulous. Friendliness of the staff...outstanding. Ability to have 4oz pours to do multiple taste test...very fun. Not much snack choices...adequate enough. The ability to have other restaurants in the area deliver their food to you at Brewery Becker...quite a service. It reminds you of a Pub in the best sense...it is a bit chaotic, a little loud, it should NOT have table numbers or waitstaff in uniforms, it should not have more TVS. It is a great addition to Downtown Brighton which has been able to keep its charm and not get too uppity. Every group of people that we saw there tonight seemed to be having a great time. Go with an open mind and you will have a wonderful experience. It is new place in town but it will evolve to one that has a Soul of its own.

We patiently waited for the Becker to open and have not been disappointed. Like all new businesses, they have a few quirks to work out but every trip there has been great. We have been there almost weekly since they opened and have seen many improvements.

The line up of beer is excellent and the brew master always has something interesting coming up. It's a little weird to order food from somewhere else, but it is after all a tasting room, not a restaurant. They now have hot pretzels, a humus plate with pita bread and olives (yum), and a few different types of sausages on a roll.

The building is beautiful, the outside patio the best in Brighton with two fire pits for those chilly nights.

For those who had less than positive experiences, I would encourage you to give them another try. The employees are dedicated and doing their best to take care of every guest.

Oh, and the German Wheat is to die for. No wait, the Heffeweisen ... er .. the Vardgrika ... sigh

We are locals that have been looking forward to the opening. Of course the building is beautiful... But the lack of staff and friendly service is going to kill it. We usually love micro brews. There isn't one I've been to that I wouldn't return to EXCEPT this one. Usually the staff is excited and shows pride in the poured product. We got a rude, your bothering me with questions and no tastes before beer pourer bar tender. The staff needs to wear some sort of uniform or bar shirt at least. It looks like they are not even working. It's sad... Could be awesome. You can tell the owners/manager beens given the place by dad ... I was warned by friends and they were right. Beer too warm also!

The renovations are beautiful considering everything but the four exterior walls had to be replaced. Nice beer selections with enough quirky brews to satisfy the more adventurous.

The service is baffling. They have to get a better system in place for keeping and remembering your tab. How about a simple map of tables at the bar? Baskets with credit cards and table numbers? We were asked three times our last names to match to our tabs; from the same server.

They really need some basic snack foods if they are going to rely on the food truck in the parking lot.

Let me just first say if you are a beer lover or love old architecture you have to visit Brewery Becker, this place is the culmination of a vision by Matt Becker to serve great beers and preserve an old landmark building for the enjoyment of everyone. Great job Matt and thank you for your patience and perseverance.

We visited Brewery Becker on Friday, July 4th, had planned to be there for the grand opening but could not make it due to other commitments, guess that worked in our favor, although we would have loved to be there on opening day when I spoke with Matt he told me that the place was jammed and getting your hands on one of their great brews required a bit of patience.

We enjoyed several of the offerings and enjoyed every one. Brewery Becker has a unique delivery system, from their website "I'm happy to say that all our beers will be cask conditioned real ales. That’s right, everything is naturally carbonated and served by pumps. No forced carbonation. No over-carbonation to push beers around."

Go there and enjoy, we will be back often.

We came for a rehearsal dinner for a friend's wedding. The beer was excellent! A lot of variety, and the bartender was very knowledgeable and detailed in his descriptions and recommendations. The atmosphere is great, very cool space. We had food brought in, so didn't get to sample the menu. Definitely will be back when visiting our friends!
