We rented scooters and scooted our way over to this brewery along the rail trail. They have good beers, good music and all well behaved dogs! We love this place and the friendly staff. Highly recommend stopping and have a beer or 3.

What a great brewery! I loved the beer I chose, as did everyone! And, the food truck was great! This would be a great place to visit in the evening—looks like they have fun lights and lots of outdoor seating.

Went there for the Lobster and Beer Fest on May 26, 2018. A mess. Way too many people for the size of the restaurant’s backyard. There were about 4-5 food trucks and the lines were ridiculous. Very disappointing. Lines too long to get anything to...More

It is a crowded place because of its popularity, but we enjoyed the variety of beer. I loved the strawberry lemonade gose and toasted coconut. It was great to have a variety in the flight.

This place is all about their outdoor patio. They always have live music, and they’re dog friendly. So, in a nut shell - beer, music, dogs. I don’t think life gets much better!! They don’t technically serve food, but there are always food trucks around.

I was staying with family so no need for hotel. However if you scroll down TA review page there are "nearby places" which includes hotels and restaurants. Good luck n enjoy.
