Reviews for Novel Brewing Company

Delicious beers. Full range of brew styles. Also, treat yourself to Chef Kev's Specialty peanuts (salty or spicy). Very friendly neighborhood vibe. Lucky locals. Of course, this was all pre COVID-19. Really hoping this is one of the craft brewers that survive!

I have been going here for 3 years and love it. The bear is consistently good and the staff is friendly. There is a new release nearly every week and I have rarely been disappointed. My disappointments have come from my own preferences (I don't like sour beer), but even the styles of beer I don't like is done very well. In addition to the beer they have great guest food trucks and vendors all the time, and fun events.

Love the theme and the beer was good. Bartenders not so friendly, not that you want them to become your new BFF but a little more attention to the customer and not each other, they were bored and pouty. At least just put a beer on someone's hand and let them go play with the cool games. Maybe they have all been off days when we have been there. Otherwise a cool neighborhood hangout.
