Optimism is 16,000 square feet of space dedicated entirely to beer. In an attempt to make beer more accessible, Optimism forgoes naming its beers after styles such as lager or stout, opting instead for names such as “One” and “Black.” There’s no food service, but there’s a rotating cast of food trucks parked in Optimism’s courtyard and a policy that allows diners to bring their own food (or have it delivered to the brewery). Of note: Optimism is both cashless and tipless, so bring plastic and know that prices include both taxes and service.
