Fantastic beer, the two of us got samplers ($14 for 6 - 5oz pours). The list of 25 or so beers has a great variety: an even split between saisons of various stripes and IPA, 2xIPAs, and a couple very nice stouts. We had a...More

I love this large and well-designed location. The staff was all very friendly and the beer selection was excellent. I enjoyed the gift store and buying some beer to go. I look forward to returning on a warm day for a cold beer.

I am not partial to beers with flavors like chocolate or coffee. I much prefer a wide selection of beers with just traditional ingredients. These beers had wide range of flavors. Many I felt did not have enough body. Only nuts for snacks.

Spacious taproom with quite a few draught selections. I had the single IPA which was smooth yet robust. I also sampled the habanero slash other peppers which wasn't as hot as I suspected! Friendly bar staff and free parking rounded out a nice experience.

From the decor, to the incredible beers, this is a gathering place and a must visit for beer lovers. The proprietors have done a great job, creating and building out the space themselves. Their hands on approach is the central theme and creates a pleasant...More
