The brewpub you always wanted in your town. Dozens of taps. Quirky but tasty and satisfying pub food menu. Excellent desserts if you're so inclined. Superb waitstaff! Fun to chat with but leave you in peace while you're partaking. Perfection! Highly recommended!!!!

We had a nice time here. They have a large choice of local beers and a bunch of tasty specialties. The room was a bit noisy though.

We were thrilled to see that this place prides itself as not serving any Anheuser-Busch products. You'll find an amazing regionally crafted beer selection. We had pickled eggs to accompany our malt beverages. This is a traditional bar and is totally worth the stop over....More

The Three Penny Taproom is one of the best gastropubs that I have ever been to. The extensive beer list is complimented by the outstanding food and great service. Our server was very friendly, and took the time to tell us about her favorites on...More
