Hermit Thrush makes some amazing sours! Seating was limited but we will definitely go back when we're in the area.

This place is not my jam. However it's still a nice stop that has a great selection of sour beers. If you dig sour beer you should make this a must stop.

Specializes in sour beers. 2oz Samples are $2 each or $7 for 4. Cannot buy pints, but you can buy 32oz/64oz growlers and cans/cases. No food, but you can bring food in. Tough to rate because sour beers are different. Not my cup of tea...More
