I think it's like this: If you have a brewery, you can get a on-site store where you can sell what you brew, even if some of it was brewed off site.

I ordered two of the "game sets" and they arrived Monday. Agree, excellent packing and organization. But I haven't had packaging problems with other breweries. A "jumble of cans in a box, some of which leaked"?? Yikes.

So far I've tried their Helles (good, just what you'd expect) and the kviek IPA collab they did with Cameron's (also good, real peach/mango vibe) and I'm happy overall.

This will generally be par for the course. Welly, for me, is far and above the rest in town. Royal city has some good stuff from time to time. Fixed gear and Brothers I tend not to bother with, as they’re overpriced for mediocre stuff.
