We had amazing beer along with an appetizer in the early afternoon. Chili fries were very good. Barrel aged Joe Daddy was outstanding, only wish we had more time to stay for dinner.

Have been there twice and both times have had awful service. It wasn’t very busy, and we still took over an hour for very average food.

Went for first time - quick jump off I90 on the way by. 10 tap beers - good deal to try them all for $15. Couple of good darker beers - wish they had a few more - they were out of the seasonal porter....More

Great beer is the tip of the iceberg. The totally vegan menu lacks nothing. The Korean BBQ Tacos rocked and the Sweep The Leg IPA was outstanding and very citrus. I will visit these guys every time I'm in the area.

Our food and service was wonderful. I had the fried avacado taco for the meal. We order the pretzel for appetizer. It was HUGE! Yummy cheeses for dipping. You don't leave hungry.

I'm not vegan, but I love this place. The sweet and hot Brussels sprouts are to die for, and the beer here is top notch. Really though, good food and good beer are relatively easy to find and somewhat subjective. What keeps me coming back...More

We went for dinner not knowing this is a vegan place. We tried a few craft beers which were pretty good. Didnt try the food, as we are not vegan. The people eating there seemed to be enjoying what they had. Great alternative place if...More

Pig Minds Brewing is one of our favorite places. They frequently come out with new brews and their vegan menu is an eye opener for those who think vegan means flavorless. Not only is the food delicious and the beer consistently good, the atmosphere is...More
