Great selection and something for every taste. Newer "tasting" room and small outdoor area weather permitting. Great bartender and interesting selection including new "sour" beer.

The industrial vibe makes u feel right at home in this tap room. Flight is the way to start since samples are $1 ea. Beers are good and the tap room opens up to the outdoors w 1 lg picnic table and corn hole game.
