Medium-sized taproom in an industrial park just off Rte 83 in Willowbrook. They opened in 2017, and are already expanding to a ten-barrel brewing system. L-shaped bar, plus several tables; four flat screen TVs, perfect for watching sports; foosball table. The brewing operation is visible to all.

The current hours are: Thu 3-10PM; Fri-Sat Noon-11PM; Sun Noon-7PM. They had seven beers on tap.

Moon Ship Rye Kölsch (4.00) – Smooth and malty; rye notes make a nice balance.
Horizon IPA (3.75) – Hoppy, malty, good example of style; does not hit you over the head with bitterness.
Fool Me Once Double Dry Hopped Pale Ale (4.25) – Big malty flavor; touch of sweetness evident.
Straight Up Porter (3.50) – Full-bodied and malty; roasted malt character a little lacking.
Half to Death Cold Brew Coffee Infused Stout (4.50) – Terrific combination of malt character and coffee flavors; dry aftertaste is spot on.
Barrel Aged Belgian Quad (4.25) – Bold malt sweetness; big, big alcohol punch; appropriate for slow sipping!

Food trucks visit regularly; check the website for details.
