We went here to sample some of their beer and were not disappointed! Good selection, also of cans and bottles to bring home. The food truck outside was nice as well. Only drawback was the location far from the city.

Really cool brewery tucked back in an industrial park. One of those places you would never know about unless you were local. Will go back for sure. Great stuff!

Standing room only when the weather's not nice, too - again, because of the crowds. Beer drinkers and their kids, their dogs - they're all here! As you turn into the street where the brewery's on your right, if you turn left instead there's a...More
