Good for a nice patio beer. We enjoyed a good IPA watching the sunset. Food looked good...but we sadly were not hungry. This place must rock in the winter skiing time ...

Located near the river is a great feature. Great food, their fish and chips just like British version. It’s more for a younger crowd.

Great meal, super friendly people & good service! Reasonably priced & right on the river overlooking a covered pedestrian bridge in a pedestrian square so no traffic. We sat out on the patio & totally enjoyed the sunset! We will be back for sure!

As an aging former snowboard bum, this place is utopia. Small, but tasty menu of scratch made food. Taps, bottles, booze... Skis and snowboards nailed up all over the place... Fire pit rolling along outside. What's not to love?

This is a very casual brewhouse offering a good selection of beers. It is very popular with the mountain bike crowd in the summer months. The food menu is simple, but the Tuesday $2.00 tacos are excellent. The location is close to the covered bridge...More
