Attractive & friendly. Selection of interesting beers brewed on site. Snacks only. No meals. Lots of room for customers. More food selection may be in the works. I hope so as would give excuse to order another type of beer!

Convenient to the main road; a somewhat "beer hall" type property but there is a good selection of local beer. Friendly service and a smallish menu. The items we had were very tasty.

A true local spot in the Sandpoint area that you need to visit on your next rip, or visit again if you're a local. They have recently added excellent wood-fired pizzas to their menu and it's worth a visit just for those. The selection of...More
