La Planta Brew pub is a great visit. Craft beer and fair pub food. Tried the beer float with scotch ale...I'd take a stout or Porter if they were brewing one now.

I was surprised to see the quality and great taste of the barbecue ribs along with a pint of golden ale. It’s a great way to relax during the weekend and enjoy fine beers with great tasting food.
