The place is one of those local hidden gems. The beers are great & the bartenders are the best. Has become a local favorite for me to go on the weekends.

This place gets a 1 for being closed on weekends. What brew pub is closed on weekends, during spring training? Thought we would try again on Monday, closed again.

We arrived just as the brew pub opened. Service was excellent. We really enjoyed the beer flights and snacks of warm chips with salsa and guacamole. There is a continuous loop of customers' dogs and we hope ours will be displayed soon!

We like trying different microbreweries. The people here were really nice, and we got to try different, generous samples. Some we liked, some we didn't. That's the fun of tasting!

Stopped after dinner tonight with the family. Had a drink, played a few games, had a good night. Server was very good, was served promptly. Our son and his wife come here frequently.

This is the type of place where the staff is all smiles and pleasantries for those they know by name. If you're stopping by to sample their beers for the first time, be prepared for sub par service and an i.d. check so severe that...More
