You really can't go wrong here. It's a great hangout with a good selection of styles. They only sell the beer they brew.

Great place to spend a late hot summer night on the deck or a winter night shivering in the smoking den with a cold beer in your hand. Also, they have great parties! Founders Fest is this summer - June 20th 2009.

For the ladies there's Cerises and Rubaeus... or a shandy.

If you live in town, I'd recommend making this a weekly destination. Join the mug clug for big savings ($1.75 on wednesdays). Mondays Class I beers are $2 for everyone!
