This is a good usual mid range brewery. The beer is quite charming, the staff not so in all honesty. I was just a solo visitor passing through and I am quite used to chatting with staff; furthermore, I have visited breweries in well over...More

Opened the place at 10 cause we are travelers. We shared a flight and really enjoyed each of the 4 beers for their uniqueness. Kirstie was a great hostess.
