I liked the atmosphere, warehouse-type feel. There was bags set up inside which was fun! We tried a flight and the beer just didn’t appeal to me. My husband liked his though. We would come back and try again.

Stopped with friends to taste some beers. Sample flights are huge! Probably the best beer was the chipotle stout. Huge warehouse is set up nicely for games and fun. Stopped again in October twice! Tried a few more beers and took some home. The food...More

Right brain is located in a residential area near rail road tracks. Not on any main drag. Hard to find, warehouse atmosphere, ok food. Was there with friends and family, only reason I would have went.

Liked the industrial brewery feel, but didn't love the beers at all. We got a flight, which also wasn't cheap, and they were all very hoppy.

A wide variety of beer available in this bustling brewery, food available too to make it a well rounded visit. My favorite is Blue Magic, definitely unique, easy drinking summer beer. Hubby loves the IPA, Willpower. Worth a visit!

WOW! I have had their dead kettle, so I wanted to visit the place... $187.00 later, I would say we had a great time! Great beer, try the Looping Owl and the deader kettle, and the burgers were very good.

We loved the beer here and the eclectic decor. However, the temperature inside was a bit warm and uncomfortable. The outside area was charming.
