A production brewery and tap room that breaks away from the traditional industrial decor, with warm Arts and Crafts paneling, exposed brick and wood beam ceilings. Custom handcrafted community tables and bar made from 150 year old reclaimed barn wood lit with lovely tiffany style lighting. Large garage doors open to the street to allow people watching. Experience the working brewery in the back, with tours, as available. The menu is highlighted by comfort food, featuring Make your own Mac & Cheese, Giant Pretzels with beer cheese fondue, and Fried green tomatoes with bacon & pimento cheese. Also on the menu, are excellent prime burgers, sandwiches, appetizers along with gluten free and vegetarian

Visited here with my sons and their wives and loved the atmosphere and the brews. The food was delicious as well. Enjoyed sitting on the sidewalk and people watching. The server was very attentive and thoughtfully brought our dog some water and treats.
