I go to a lot of breweries. Their wheat beer is in my top ten of beers. I drink a lot of wheat beers and this one is top notch. Also, the pizza at the brewery was very fresh and tasteful.

As far as I know, it's possible to call them to reserve a table. I remember going with Trend Micro, and we had our 2 tables reserved, but it wasn't a Saturday, so I'm not sure.
