Innovation has great staff, environment and a wide variety of creative beer varieties! We enjoy being able to bring our dog with us, and the Cosmic Carry Out burgers are always a nice treat!

We ride our motorcycles up to the mountains and always overnight there mostly due to Innovation. The staff is great and the brew is wide ranging and always tasty! The food truck outside might be non descriptor but man O man if the food good!...More

Located at the end of the downtown area this micro brewery is very popular and has some great beer. A food truck offers limited food choices.

At the end of Main Street in an unassuming building is a gem. An incredible range of beers, of which we could only sample two, in a real pub atmosphere. A van in the yard does the best burgers ever and delivers them to you...More

Had a great time here. Beertenders offered great advice to help us with the many varieties of beers they offer. Very good burgers for the food truck in premises with personal delivery right to our table.

They handled a large crowd on eclipse weekend very well. Almost an overwhelming choice of beers, but that's a good thing. The food "truck" supplied food was very good. Love how they had a self-serve water tap.

Stopped first night after hotel receptionist recommended. Great beers, fu spot, can sit outside. Second night, we ordered food...from a great food truck on Innovations property. Loved the beers and food. Also, had live music, ended up there about 4 hours on a Thursday night.

We didn't have food... just beer. However, if you are a beer connoisseur this is the spot. The beer has no bite. Did a flight of ipa. You won't be disappointed.
