8 years ago we visited a tin shed with dicey beer...now it’s a first class craft beer operation with terrific range and quality.

Beer was craft, crowd was hipster, menu was nonexistent. Overwhelming aroma of production when the big garage door was closed up. Maybe the ventilation system isn’t working properly? Not good enough to bother going back though we did take a 4-pack of bottles for the...More

The downsides-no longer dog friendly due to some ill-mannered behavior by previous 4 legged visitors and seating is limited to a 35 person headcount, neither dealbreakers. Upsides-great beers on tap friendly servers, and good music. What's not to like?More
