Great place to hangout before catching the ferry. Twelve local beers on tap. My favorite was the spruce tip ale. Workers were friendly down-home people. Conveniently located in the middle of town. Glasses, tees and hoodies for sale. Nice background music.

Nice place, good beer. Spruce tip beer was special... cute outdoor area to sit when the weather is nice, and comfortable indoor space. No food, and cash only.

Was able to try several selections at a fair price. Good place to go off the Holland American Cruise Ship. We were there early in the day and not crowded but can see that it gets busy fast at peak times. The home made root...More

We stopped in to try local brews. Surprisingly a good selection. You can choose 5 ounce for $3 or 12 ounce for $5. Very interesting selections and combinations. Garden patio in the back to enjoy the outdoor/mountain views. Friendly folks. This place is less than...More
