The staff were friendly and welcoming. I tried a few samples. Ended up drinking a pint of their huckleberry cream ale. Enjoyed the beer while playing cards. Its a nice place and good beer.

Our dog Murphy loved the taproom. Staff was friendly and beer was delicious. Recommend Rocket dog Ale. Food was good and reasonably priced. This taproom made me want to to move to Sandpoint Idaho.

Every year they get better and add more to the menu of beers and now food. Love the casual and local vibe. We took my 70 year old mom there and they were so friendly, she loved it. It didn't hurt that my husband saw...More
