We went on happy hour and ordered food on the special menu. If you like chicken wings, this is the place to go. Note that they are boneless and quite spicy (depending on the chef), server on top of chopped cole. You should definetly taste the hummus! The taste is something that can't be described, it needs to be tasted.

My son had the burger, my daughter the veggie burger, my husband had the piggy bank mac and cheese and I had the cioppino. Everything was excellent. The beers were very good. The service was exceptional. Would definitely go back.

This is a fun place to head to with friends or family. It has a diverse menu which is surprising for a brewery. They definitely care as much about the food as the beer, yeah! The turkey club board was tasty and while presented well a bit difficult to eat. The burgers were also tasty but again our crowd found... More

We enjoyed dinner. They have a good happy hour. We had to ask waiter about it after our food arrived. They have $5 beers and $5 apps until 6p. We order turkey burger and pizza which were around $15 each.
