My husband and I really enjoyed the current beer selections and shared the nachos. Staff were attentive without being overbearing. We made sure we brought some of their beer home with us! Great little place with a relaxed, unpretentious vibe.

A great place to kicK back, enjoy the town, and have good conversation with locals. If you like beer, they have many varieties, or you can have a fresh brewed root beer that is excellent. Really enjoyed this place and will return.

On a multi-state road trip, and always like to check out the local breweries. Walked in the door, and it was a bit odd in that there is no real direction as to what to do. The downstairs is a tasting room/bar area, but the...More
