This is a small tap room in a nondescript office/warehouse alley sort of behind the Sagebrush restaurant near the expressway. The people there are friendly and after we came back they welcomed us as repeat customers. We actually found the place by having their black lager at a pizza place and looking them up. You can sample their offerings and... More

What a bonus to find this sweet honey hole of a brew pub just down the hill from the Econo Lodge! My brother and I truly love the Bear Waters IPA so much so we bought growlers to fill over and over each night to enjoy on the balcony at the hotel. Please place this spot on your list when... More

This place is hidden away in an industrial area. If you can find it, you'll discover that they have managed to overcome the location with a cute quirky Decor that makes it fun. Had a barrel aged Irish whiskey stout. Delicious! Friendly, helpful bartender.

This was our 3rd visit to this brewery in a year. Our first 2 experiences were good, this one not so much. We like the beer here, I like one that is a reddish dark stout, can't remember the name of it. My husband likes IPAs. We had two friends with us and were a little embarrassed about this visit,...

Ok, so the beer is good. A little heavy with the wheat beer though. Woman behind the bar was probably the worst server we've had in the 2 weeks we were in the area. All she cared about was gabbing with her friends and a local. So, the 4 of us had our 1 beer which we had to go... More

Kevin, the owner, knows Beer! Well worth the effort to find - behind the Sagebrush restaurant. Overall, they have the best locally brewed beers and selection in town. They also offers craft beer to go. Local live bands perform weekly. Great Stop.

The brewery is in an industrial area, I missed it the first time I drove by due to my GPS being in error.. The barmaid was very friendly and talkative. My son and I drank several different beers, I enjoyed the IPA beers and he liked the stout. There is no food available so bring your own. Music is played... More
