Cozy speak-easy style little downstairs pub. An ever rotating menu of craft and local microbrews. You won't find your standard cheap domestics here. The appetizer type food pairs well with the drinks. They also have wines, and for the kids they keep an amazing root beer on tap. Friendly staff, and great entertainment. Some Saturdays food trucks come so you can grab a meal and take it into the ale house with you.

Stopped in for a beer after dinner. The staff and other patrons were very friendly. It felt like we were at someone's home. This is a great place to relax or unwind. Nice selection of craft beer. Will definitely come again next time we are in the area.

We just moved here and we have found our new hang out place.
Andrew and Jared are great. We fell in love with The Rocky Bottom Boys , their live music is awesome. They play every Wednesday night!
