We stopped in the afternoon for a couple beers. The beer is good with a decent variety. The building is really cool with a nice beer garden area. We didn't eat but heard good things about the food.

Awesome beer!! Great place to hang out! Too bad there was a fire a few weeks ago and they aren’t serving food now. But still a great place to hang out and have a great local brew!
