I’ve lived in the area my whole life and never heard about this place. Neat place to grab a drink, bring in some snacks, and play some board games.

Discovered this gem last night and was highly impressed. Quite a nice size micro brewery with a wide range of beers to choose from on tap (or in cans). Well worth a visit!!
