This is a great little brewery with excellent food and good service. Their craft beers are very good and they have a very extensive bourbon selection.

This is the 1st mirco brewery in town. Great food and choice of beer. Plus you can walk along the river and grab ice cream after.

This place used to have the best honey mustard, and they changed it to a Dijon type mustard and it’s not very tasty. Please bring back the old, sweet honey mustard! That was the only reason I came to the restaurant!

We want to thank our talented bartender, Nikki! She made several good Rye recommendations. We enjoyed the bar atmosphere with our local friends and our new buddy Andy from Scotland.
