Varied beer selection and BWX burger was fantastic-great flavors. Given the summer season we tried the Blueberry and Watermelon beers; both crisp and refreshing. We were visiting the area and landed on a gem!

Stopped in after a nighttime ghost tour. My husband and I ordered some apps and beers. I LOVED the Hibiscus Sour :) The cheese balls were delicious!
