Another brewery, also on the smaller side, Transmitter specializes in farmhouse ales, with a focus on French and Belgian style beers and barrel aged sours. Their tasting area is undoubtedly different—it’s hidden under the Pulaski Bridge and there are no flight options, nothing on draft, just bottles—but they pride themselves on their artisanally crafted beer, which is apparent with each sip. Also check out their unique CSB program, in which (like a CSA) community members can pay a set amount and pick up beer samples each month to enjoy.
