A Riverside Mecca for Craft Brew Connoisseurs
From the tasting room to the beers, Metropolitan is doing everything on their terms.
Old-World Lagers. New-World Attitude.
This is the best German-style American brewery I have ever been to, and from the Hels to Schwartz, they really did an exceptional job in balancing malt profiles and avoiding the sweetness that too many German-style American brewers can fall into. Great beer, helpful staff, and an amazing view of the river.
Amazing facility, gorgeous views and architecture but the beer rivals all that and shines brighter than sun on the river. Their beers are German styles, so if you aren’t as familiar with those please don’t complain. Metropolitan makes some of the best examples of how beer was “born”
Five Stars is not enough, walk through an alley, into an awesome courtyard, and once you enter, walk down what I thought was a Medieval hallway, hang a left and then a right, walk through the door and you have hit one of the best homes for German Style Lagers ever.
