This brewery is a little out of the way. They have a outdoor and indoor space. They have 12 beers on tap. They do flights of 4. The beer was decent.

This is the place to go for a good beer. Eat ahead so you can imbibe to your hearts delight. Love their Double Daddy IPA. Atmosphere is dark and a feel of privacy. Staff are great. They have happy hour chili on Fridays too !!!

Staff totally knows craft beer. The on tap selection is diverse and high quality. If you love beer this craft micro is worth a visit. Bartenders Sochi and Katie were indulgent with their time and expertise. Wish I could give this brewery 6 stars.
