What else do you do on a cold and rainy day before ski season? Try Flat Top. Great beer and nice staff. No food but a fun escape for an hour. One day this brewery will be nationally known - it’s that good.

Great spot to grab a few beers, hang out and relax. Bar tender was fantastic! Beers were delish - Crabby Louie at 9.6% is not to be missed!!

Hit this place up for the first time on vacation. Owner was friendly, beer flight was great and and the atmosphere was chill and friendly. Bonus that there was a food truck out front as well. There are some game areas is the back too.

Located in a pseudo strip mall with the police station next door this brewery leaves a lot to be desired. The bonus for us is it was kid friendly to where our two kiddos ( 5 and 3) were adequately entertained with various puzzles. The...More

Thank you for visiting our taproom. We usually experience over-carbing/pressure issues with our long draw draft system so I'm surprised to hear you were served beer with insufficient carbonation. Please give us another chance I promise you won't receive undercarbed beer. And, you and your...More
