Great place to have a beer and appetizer. Offer competitive prices during lunch and happy hour. They offer tours of the brewing process too which is really interesting. By far my favorite menu item is their nachos, absolutely delicious.

My sister was in from out-of-state and we stopped in for lunch. One thing you can count on with the brewery is quick seating, Quick Service, and good food.
