My dad and I stopped here on our way home to get a flight and bring home some growlers. They had a great variety to taste! Our favorites were Notorious V.A.G. (currently cannot buy growlers of this, but I hope they change that soon!!) and...More

This is a great little brewery! They had a variety of craft beers on tap. There are often food trucks outside as well. Worth checking out!

Love this place. They brew a very interesting variety of complex, tasty beers, and offer a generous tasting for $3. They let you take your time- I usually bring a light snack and hang out a while. They have a nice tasting room in an...More
