Visited the brewery and it was a great experience with a good selection of beers, especially dark beers. The brewery's food menu had a nice selection of eats. The brewery has plenty of outside seating. There was a band as well and in looking at the brewery's web site, they have music every day. Plenty of street parking is also... More
