You heard correct that their beer is good but not brilliant (they are a young brewery and have time to become brilliant).
That being said, they are very friendly and the prices in the tasting room are low. Hopefully their product will change and grow.
They are coming out with an oatmeal stout on Feb 14 and a double ipa in early march. I look forward to trying them both.
Right on! I'm assuming you're a home brewer--are you in a club? If you've any interest, our next meeting is with Dan Yarnall (former brewer at Beqch Brewing, now head beer buyer) at Whole Foods in Va Beach. 7pm Wed Feb 13th. The club's evolved a lot in the recent past, and there's now a pretty solid core group who are dedicated to better beer.

Wait. You're not talking about beer, right?
You're talking about beer. That could have been a whole lot more fun.

Today I received my grains, yeast, and hops for my Honey Cream Ale I'm brewing this weekend. Also in the package was a backup hydrometer, and a pound of DME for making starters. This is the first time I've purchased un-crushed grains which I plan on running through my new grain mill I received yesterday.

I'll plan on attending. Currently I'm not in a club but I have met a good friend of Paul, who is the president I guess of HRBTS, and he keeps trying to get me out. I was going to go last month but caught the flu. This is for HRTBS right and not BARF?
