Discovered this gem last night and was highly impressed. Quite a nice size micro brewery with a wide range of beers to choose from on tap (or in cans). Well worth a visit!!

Kim and I thought it was a very nice brewery, staff was very pleasant and helpful. Free samples of any beer you want. Prices were reasonable. Had Mexican food for sale that was very good. A great experience. Would definitely come back.
