Our server, Taylor, was excellent. She was happy and knowledgeable about the menu. We enjoyed our evening out with friends and she played a big part in that. She returned to refill drinks and worked quickly and efficiently. We will definitely return!

We had a tasting of 6 beers and then chose one to drink. Really loved the double IPA and Brown's IPA. The bartender was very friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed our time there.
