Very nice beer den, with lots of outdoor seating. The brewery makes several varieties of German style beer, so if you're looking for something with an overly hoppy IPA taste, go elsewhere. If you want a great beer, though ... this is the place to go!

I was excited when I found out about a German brewery with food. The exterior of the brewery had dozens of long picnic tables, games, a huge lawn area, a biergarten, all fenced, etc. Truly an amazing area with a homey/friendly type feel. Inside the brewery was amazing awesome vibe and decor. Food came out fast. This place has all... More

We were so fortunate to stop during their anniversary. Outdoor area filled w long picnic tables (a glorious beer garden). They had food trucks, live music and beer. Inside they have a huge dining area w German fare and decent sized bar area. Friendly staff too. Great area for lg groups. Very dog friendly too. Enjoyed the IPA and Hefeweizen.

This place brews its own beer, German-style, so that was my drink of choice - excellent. Most of us chose sausages, served with sides such a red cabbage (copious and tasty) and Spaetzle (superb). Little granddaughter chose a pizza, plate-sized. She started by eating just the centre and left the crusts; eyeing these I thought there is a taster for... More

An outdoor biergarten of the classic variety, filled with groups of people enjoying themselves and a warm afternoon. The beers were tasty as well as a wide variety; the service helpful. Our group (7) were inside at a table so we could talk. And we didn't feel we lost anything but some Vitamin D, from being out of the sun,... More

Fun destination with great beer that reminded me of Oktoberfest in Germany. Long tables both in and out where we had a good time chatting with three different sets of people to sat next to us while we were there. Great beer with a plentiful selection. Food was really good. I intended to have a burger, but when faced with... More

Huge Fan! Infact, i blame them if Budweiser or Corona have lost me as a Customer. Excellent place. Food is STRICTLY OKAY. Please do not expect French Chefs cooking Gourmet Food. The best part. The place, the dishes are Super Duper Clean!

The food here is extremely good. I was with a party of 17 and no one had anything bad to say about their food. The only negative I had was the bench seats, I prefer a back to my seat.
