Really enjoyed our visit here. Special batch of lemon ginger zombie was delicious. Service was great. Good place to hang out for a couple of brews.

Our brewery of choice. Tasty brews, easy parking, pet friendly. We stop at least once each visit. And being next door to Buxton Hall BBQ is a plus!

It wasn't even crowded when we were there, but it got really loud. No food in house, but they bring in food trucks and there's a BBQ place next door (it stopped serving around 2 or 3).

Beer was good and the place is really nice. We had a large party with 6 kids and the inside was empty on a Friday night. The Biergarten has live music and hammocks - super cool, but we stayed inside due to our kids. They...More

Great tap room! We got to try some great beers, but I especially liked the Peach of Mind... it was smooth and peachy (of course)... The Black Dome stout was good and smokey... Parking on the street.
