Nice beer, nice people - very friendly. Great food from a nearby establishment that delivers. An extra special thing is that it's across the street from Whirligig Park. You can enjoy a beer or two while watching the whirligigs.

Located right off the Whirlygig Park, this brewery has a little of everything from stand up amateur nights to music groups. The place is a blend of old and new with a good view of the new park.
