Had the best time today with my family. My husband and I enjoyed the beers, service was quick and easy! They are very efficient on how to purchase and get your beers. Food was delicious. And my kids loved playing in the wooded playground they created. And the band was excellent !

Love the brewery, been here probably a dozen times over the years. Beer Garden is big enough for you and a few thousand of your friends. Recently played the par 2 disc golf course they have set up out back, definitely a fun touch. Will definitely be returning!

I had my wife's 50th birthday party here and had just over 70 guests and a live band. Alex and the rest of the OMB could not have been better. They were helpful, polite, on top of every issue and made the night as good as we could have hoped for. We had them do the food and I heard lots of compliments on that too (you must have their brisket). All in all, the venue, the food, the service - all a perfect ten. I wholeheartedly recommend them.

Very big space to eat and drink with your dogs. In a sunny day it's perfect to enjoy the weather with your furry friends. The system to have your bank account open from the beginning is convenient for the people who wants to stand up and leave at any moment without waiting for the waiter to bring the check and do the payment. Plenty of choices of alcoholic beers and sausages.

Food, beer and general service were enjoyable. Was a bit disappointed to find that the server after being told to add a 25% gratuity to the bill added a 125% gratuity. I thought the number they were showing me was the total for the whole tab and not just the tip. I did confront them about it after realizing they had lead me to give them a $20 tip on a $16 tab. Being from out of town and with company I didn't feel I right to make a fuss nor did I want to waste their time or mine dealing with trying to figuer out a refund for simply being too trusting the servers math. Seems pretty common sense but sometimes you just think people are better gonna be better than that. Great place, just do your own math.
