Boasting one of the best IPAs I have ever tasted, this phenomenal microbrewery/gastropub offers a slew of other malty libations out of a re-vamped, former ice house. This is the perfect place to chill and relax while your “better-half” hunts down souvenirs, handicrafts and unique...More

This place was a pleasant surprise. I didn’t expect such interesting beer. The Gose was as delicious, they had a great selection of IPA. I highly recommend this brewery.

A bar that surprises you right at the entrance. A different decoration that arouses a lot of curiosity. A wonderful beer, and there is a very nice open space in the summer. You can see the city, enjoy good conversation, and great beer.
