Notes

Visited: February 15, 1996

Opened: 1994

Annual Production: 1,500 bbl

Interesting selection of bottled and draught beers. Pool tables, electric darts, pinball in a separate room. Smoking allowed at the bar.

Directions: I-10 to Euclid, go north. Right on Ninth Street. Left on First Avenue. Park in the municipal lot and look for their back door.

Reports in April 2008 say they're not brewing anymore, and are working on changing the name of the place. It may be just as well to mark this one "closed".

      Amber, good carbonation, OK head. Floral, soapy aromas. Tastes like perfumed soap. Too bad. Some malty sweetness in there somewhere. Almost but not quite drinkable.

      Overall Impression (2½)
      Brown-red, low carbonation and head. Faint brown malt aroma. BIG toffee and chocolate flavor, like drinking a Heath Bar.

      Overall Impression (2½)
      Dark red, transparent, good head. Some black malt aroma, hint of hops. Very nice Porter. Good black malt flavor, but body is too thin for a Stout.
