Offers a variety of ciders, beers, and spirits of all sorts on tap. Go try some and grab some freshly popped popcorn while you're sampling the homemade varieties of your choosing on tap. Sit, sip, enjoy!

We had dinner and drinks early one evening. The people were friendly, beer was cold and the food was good. Reasonably priced menu with a simple menu.
