Many kinds of beer. Excellent burgers. They give you a post card to write on and even mail it for you. A fun place to go. Definitely planning on going back!

I can only speak for the burgers. They are not the perfectly round burgers pumped out from a machine. They taste and look home made on an exceptionally fresh bun. We get one plate with fries and the other without fries because you get so many fries. This is also one of the home breweries so someone else will have... More
