If you are a craft beer afficiando, this is a must stop on St Thomas! Best beer we had all week and the friendliest owners. Who doesn't love "86 and Sunny" Pale Ale? We will be back!

We visited this microbrewery last weekend...what a blast! Not only are the owners delightful, the beers we tasted were awesome. After our tasting we went downstairs to the Pie Whole for awesome pizza. Make this pair a priority when visiting!

Enjoyed learning about Frenchtown's history and growing craft beer business. Four beers on tap during our visit and all were fantastic. Our favorites were the "Brown Ale" and the "86 and Sunny". Best of luck to Frenchtown as they look to expand!
