Scott’s addition has several breweries which may make your decision difficult. Look no further try this place first. The sweet potato brew was my favorite. I love their patio and partnership with intergalactic tacos!

Super nice, helpful staff. Love it when bartenders actually talk to you about the beer and know about all of them. Love the atmosphere and the beer is great too.
