I went here with my boyfriend hoping for excellent BBQ and beer. The Beer was good! Just odd that they don't sell flights of beer..... The BBQ was a different story. We ordered a sampler and the only decent BBQ was the chicken and pulled pork. It was very expensive as well. The ribs were gross! Tons of fat you... More

If you are really into breweries it makes sense to give this place a try but thats about all it has going for it. The food is average at best. I wont be going back.

In a place that offers so many different beers and has so much space it is a shame that customer service is so far down on their priority list. Start with the fact that the kitchen is closed on Mondays. Why? I don't know. They did have cheese and Jerky for 5 dollars each but take a look at the... More

First time there. Great beer, good food, huge portions. Next time I think I'll go for the small plates. Love the atmosphere, you are in the brewery. Nice service. Will go back.

Been a fan of defiant for years back when we were able to converse with the brew master and it was a single bar. Always a favorite for food is the wings and jerkey! Love the expansion on the beer menu and that it is always changing.
