Very nice local restaurant. Comfortable decor and good food. I had a burger without a bun as cutting back on carbs. The meat and flavor was so good.

The name would lead you to believe it’s all about the brew. The brew is important but what makes it the complete experience is the atmosphere combined with amazing dishes cooked to perfection. The most notable and easiest to destroy is the calamari platter. Who...More
