This place is always worth a visit. Excellent selection of great beers, open feeling, and good tunes. Food is subject to change as it depends on the food truck that day so a bit of a wild card there. Live music on occasion, always a...More

Local brewery, very friendly and really good beer the only down fall is there's no food, sometimes they have food trucks outside. Easy access, specially if you're staying at the Marriott just across the little bridge.
