Popular downtown location with decent selection of beers. Outside patio for people watching. Beers are pricey at 6.50 a pint. No food, but Fireflour pizza next door will deliver to your table.

As always, the beer is great that we are choices are wonderful. And now, in their new facility the food service choices are overwhelming! This will absolutely be our new all-time favorite place to go for good food and good beer!

Their beer was reasonably good but nothing stood out. Their strong ale (Sinister) was probably the best of the five beers that I tasted or drank. The others were pretty average. Service was ok but nothing special.

After lucking out with a very nice local restaurant find (Toasted Frog) we kept walking and found these guys. What a bunch of great beer-guys running this little brewery. Being the self proclaimed IPA snobs that we try to be, we've fallen in love with...More

I was walking down the street and just happened to walk in to the Laughing Sun Brewing Company. It was a friendly atmosphere, the service was great and the beer was delicious! Try the strawberry wheat you won't be disappointed!
