Enjoyed lunch here with friends. The sandwiches are great! Beer selection is great but not much for ciders. Truly enjoyed the atmosphere. Orders are taken at the bar but are delivered to the tables.

Stopped by for a quick drink and to pick up sandwiches for the road. My wife raved about the Huckleberry Ale and it’s been her new favorite for the rest of the road trip. Very friendly service. The sandwiches were high quality and delicious. We...More

If you like real beer, this place is worth a stop. You won't be disappointed. The beers are all brewed locally so they are fresh; and the prices were very reasonable.
