We usually eat downstairs at the bar, haven't tried the upstairs pizza yet. They have a good selection of house smoked meats, sandwiches, and side dishes. Their beer is excellent and they even have a couple of gluten reduced ales.

We really enjoyed our dinner. 30 minute wait on an early Friday seemed appropriate—we had a drink at the bar. I liked that 8 ounce beers were on the menu—I was able to sample a few without being intoxicated. I just wish they filled growlers!...More

This is a brewery done right. The beer is awesome, something for everyone. The menu too has something for everyone - soul food to eclectic. We tried the in house sausages - so good. The whole atmosphere is fun - a modern beer hall.

This place is amazing! It’s a bit of a drive though from downtown but worth it. The place is huge and very upscale with great views of their brewing facility behind glass. The bottom level resembles a beer hall with lots of tables as well...More

Stop by to try the new pizza restaurant upstairs. Very interesting pizza options and the beer selection was great as usual. Great thin crust pizza. Each pizza is a single style with interesting toppings. Don't think your standard domino's style. Think more gourmet ingredients. Pizzas...More

Started going to Surly for Sunday night trivia and have been highly impressed by this brew hall. The beer (including some sour beers and a rosé beer in the summer) are great and the service has always been fantastic. There's a pizza parlour with "new...More
