Hand crafted beers versus delicious entrées? It's hard to pick which is better. The Dijon chicken is not to be missed. Also, a decent amount of food for the price. I will be back here again.

Never disappointed when I eat here. Great food and drinks. The carrot cake is to die for. The burger with a fried egg and bacon is amazing as well.

There is handicap parking in the lot just across the street. There is also handicap parking in the garage above Destihl. They are equidistant. Enjoy
