The Place: Pryes Brewing Taproom

The Food: Red Wood’s Bar-b-Que, courtesy of Red Wagon Pizza. Tasty, but very small and generally kind of average for the price. 

The Drink(s): Imperial Red Ale, Foreign Extra Stout, Miraculum

The Atmosphere: relaxed, surprisingly quiet (went around 8:30 pm)

The Service: friendly, quick

The Spendyness: $$  –  $12 for a personal pizza (think even smaller than a Punch pizza). 

Bike Friendly: yes — plentiful bike racks!

Dog Friendly: yes — I was even able to get pets in with a black lab puppy

Monday Closed
Tuesday Closed
Wednesday 4–10PM
Thursday 4–11PM
Friday 3PM–12AM
Saturday 11AM–12AM

Finally made it to the new Pryes Taproom!

With it being so close to our apartment, I’m a little bit embarrassed it took us so long to check out the space. Note the hours of operation – we didn’t investigate this properly on our first attempt to visit the taproom.

Ever since, I’ve been determined to cross this one off my list — which we were able to do last Friday night. While I didn’t think the pizza was anything spectacular (it wasn’t bad, but it didn’t blow my socks off), the ambiance of the taproom more than made up for what I didn’t like. Indoors they offer plentiful seating, feather bowling (similar to curling, sans ice), and all of the Edison light-bulbs your hipster heart desires.  Outside you’re welcomed by farm tables, soft patio lighting, and plenty of stools for parties of 1-3.

The taproom was surprisingly quiet for a Friday night, but it really suited my mood. I’m unsure if this has anything to do with the fact that Pryes, like many other breweries, is bit off the beaten path, or if it’s just another sign of the saturated brewery market.

Either way, it was a great place for a quiet night and a few beers.

Bonus points for the black lab puppy.
