I love this place. Not only draft beers, but also outstanding kombucha. And usually several flavors on tap. Magnificent colors, tastes. Try mixing it with beer! A kombucha shandy - you'll be surprised!

Thank you! Our friends over at Raincoast Kombucha do an amazing job, and we are proud to work with them. Rotating flavours on tap all the time. Thanks for swinging in!

The flavor assortment is wonderful, staff and crowd are very friendly. Bring some of your on appies, maybe a meat platter with cheese and crackers. You will have a great time.
