  • Beer, atmosphere, Altbier, IPA
  • I tried the honey basil pale ale and it was wonderful! not nearly as bitter as most pale ales. appreciate the lack of hoppy bears, makes them stand out
  • If you're in the alley and looking for Sketchbook, this is the door you want.
  • Fantastic beer.
  • Ripe Now is a porter with elderberries. Very understated.

  • Love the Porters. Always something new to try with excellent staple beers. Great job Sketchbook!
  • Outstanding brews! It was a refreshing departure from the typical brew pub and really impressed with the selection and creative recipes. The Triple G was spectacular as well as the Cumulus Hefeweizen.
  • Solid line up of beers. Liked that they didn't have too many hoppy beers.
  • Great beer - super friendly. We were there on the last day of the old tasting room - new tap room opens on Monday!
