Beer Glass Tasting Room

We’re open!  After years without a tap room and much trouble and tribulation to secure licensing the day has finally come!  We are so excited to have you.  Hours: Monday 11:30 am – 6:30 pm, Tues-Thurs 11:30am -8:00pm ,  Friday & Saturday  11:30 am-9:00 pm.     It’s a bit of a “Speak Easy”.  There is no signage (don’t ask).  Look for the Pigs.  Enter 2160 S.W. Temple or through the court yard at 131 Commonwealth.  The building is on the corner of S.W. Temple and Utopia.  We are just 2 minutes away from Hwy 80 at State Street.   If you’re not familiar with the area here is a link to a short video that shows you how to find us.     Brewery Hours and Directions  We’re often here after hours.  If we’re here, you’re welcome to come on in.  Look for the open sign out front.  We’re opening early on game days.  check our blog or Facebook page for special events and hours.

How about high alcohol content beer? Only available through the bottle shop “To Go”.   Yep, sounds crazy to us too.  We are working on securing yet another license from the state to be able to be to offer the higher alcohol beers on premise.  The state has run out of these licenses and there is a waiting list.  Not happy?  Want to do something about it? We could use your help with email and letter writing our legislators.  Stay tuned.  We will be spearheading a beer advocacy campaign.  It’s about time we take our state back and make a difference for good.

Growlers? We don’t have our own yet, but if you have a growler you’d like to bring in, we’ll fill it.


Bring your lunch box unless you want a frozen burrito.  We fought long and hard for the license that gives you a “choice” of weather to order food or not.  Now having said that, we do want to bring you great food options.  We had Chef J Looney with the Chow Truck, and The Polorican on opening day and are working to line up some of your favorite food trucks.  Pat’s BBQ is just a couple of doors down on commonwealth and a DDD location.  Get your BBQ to go and come on over.

Oh – as part of our licensing  we have to have a “food option” that is provided by “us-not an outside vendor”,  made on site, and (since we don’t have a kitchen) pre-packaged.   For now, that means frozen burritos and a microwave.   It’s self serve, so if you want one of our frozen burritos you’re going to have to micro wave it yourself.  Lol.


We are not able to have pets indoors, but we have a couple of picnic tables in the patio.   The beer garden won’t be ready until this summer, so it’s not a fancy space.  It actually looks a bit like a prison yard (full disclosure) but you’ll find some pretty awesome beer and what we hope will fee like home away from home.

The Future

We’re working on it and would love your feed back, input, and collaboration.  Come find us on facebook, instagram, or G+.   This is a soft opening,   phase 1 of the Tap Room.   We are still working through the details.
