Great beer and great food. Worth the drive downtown. Will be going back. A large selection of beers to choose from.

Our server, Jennifer was outstanding, personable and made us look forward to our next visit. The Smokin' Hot Habanero BBQ wings were sweet and once nice kick. Meatloaf and mashed potatoes were great, gravy looked heavy, but wasn't, flavors awesome.

Relatively large selection of brews and styles available at one time for a craft brewery but most are pretty average for craft beer. Good stuff but nothing really outstanding or world class. Big venue but business seemed a bit slow on a Saturday mid-afternoon. Many TVs with the usual game selections. Friendly staff and comfortable, relaxed atmosphere.

If you're in a hurry you might skip this place. The service is slow. The food is so so. I had a rib eye that was really thin and over cooked. The veggies were undercooked. My buddy had the mac and cheese with chicken and bacon. It was pretty good. They have wifi so I could do some work. It's... More

We really enjoyed the late lunch here, still quite busy over a weekend. The beer choice is great and the food is really just bar food....but portions are huge! The design and layout tis great and we really enjoyed it. You can sit at the bar, tables or high tables. There are some pool tables as well. The service was... More

The social, service, and atmosphere was on point. The food came out in less than 5 minutes, I got a lunch and beer combo for 9 dollars, highly recommend.

We just stopped in to try some craft beers!! I found a 100 IBU IPA! Wow, very yummy! I also liked the IPA with pink grapefruit juice added. Also, Thunder Canyon's IPA was good! I just had samples of these since I couldn't decide which one I wanted a full glass of! My boyfriend had the milk stout which he... More

They have beer, food and liquor. The beer was pretty good. I tried the darker beers they had on tap like coffee stout, etc. The food was pretty good as well but the entrees are giant so I would recommend sharing a plate if your just visiting and can't take leftovers home. They also donate to the dog community and... More

We went here for a easy dinner on a Friday evening. Was seated inside the restaurant but opted to sit outside as it was thunderous inside. A sign they have a good business but not conducive for conversation. The patio was very comfortable with the overhead fans and misters running full blast. I ordered the bacon guacamole burger and my... More

Very good food average service. Went to supper on Sunday night. It was relatively quiet and we were seated quickly. It took about 10 minutes for the waitress to come to the table. I believe she was new, she didn't know much about the menu or craft brews that had on tap. The food was very good and presented well.... More
