Went here after a long day of hiking. The bar has a good selection of various beers with a nice atmosphere. The happy hour deals are decent too. I would recommend anyone to go here.

Not much to do in this quiet little town. We tried to go bar hopping and this was one of the bars we stumbled upon. The bartender was super cool and informative about the beers.
