Glad I finally got around to visiting this local brewery. I tried three of the beers, and all were excellent. Apparently there's usually a food truck, but not the night I was there. Several local pizzerias and restaurants will deliver, though. They host events; there...More

Nice selection of brew beers. A bit higher alcohol content ...so beware! The selection of food trucks has always been good. Having the games is nice also.

Tasty affordable beers served by bartenders who know their beer. They can help you decide which one(s) you will like. Better yet, try a flight – you won’t go wrong. Fair Winds makes good beer in variety of styles and they name them after nautical...More

A veteran-owned local brewery/taproom that has a great variety of beers from IPAs to Kolsch to Belgian Strong ale. They are open 7 days a week, with events almost every week. Although only open three years, they have amassed an impressive array of local, state...More

I didn't know what to expect from a brewery in an industrial park but the nearly full parking lot and food truck out front looked like good signs. The full tasting room and almost full patio was further good signs. (And both are pretty big.)...More
