A little off the beaten path but well worth it. Riggs offers a wide selection of craft beers, a tour and occasionally food trucks. As always, you are allowed to bring in your own food. Always a good time to be had at Riggs.

This place is genius in its simplicity—a large outdoor area with play areas for kids and tons of park benches to enjoy beer with one another and watch your kids run around outdoors in a scenic wide open country space. Major plus—they have outdoor cats...More

An amazing selection of German style beers. Met the brewer, and he explained all the details of his brewing process. Tried the IPL and the red lager, and found both to be excellent. Would highly recommend this place for a visit.
