Able to do a complete tasting of their beers - light to dark. The server was very knowledgeable. You can't buy pints to drink on site but you can buy individual cans of their beer.

So if you like beer, this is a great stop. The tastes are free and they will let you taste everything on tap- 8 or so brews. They have a pretty wide range of brews on tap, from blond, to golden ale, to porter, to...More
