We've been driving by and never stopped because of the limited parking (they do need more parking) but the brewery itself was a treat! The staff was friendly, the bathrooms were clean and the ambiance was fun! Oh and the beer was tasty and cold!More

Busy place, appeared that a lot of locals were there visiting and having a few brews. Not enough parking close by and parking lot was gravel. Good beer.

20 or so tasty beers. Filled with young retired and empty nesters on Tuesday afternoon. Small watering hole, excellent brewery. Noisy. There is a playground and outdoor seating for warmer days.
