Counter Weight has plenty of parking and two floors to check out (a tap room on each). Downstairs was a regular tap room with about 8-10 beers. Plenty of seating and nice for hanging out. Like most small breweries, they do not sell food but...More

Awesome new craft brewery in an old fitness center complex complete with a wild fermentation room and 2 serving areas. Incredibly tasty IPA's...particularly Inundation and Spiral Architect.

Location is not the prettiest. No outdoor seating, no windows with views, but their IPAs are very good. Fairly crowded on a Saturday afternoon- dog and kid friendly. Do not sell growlers but do have limited cans to go.
