stopped in this joint after hiking through a lightning storm at the effigy mounds national monument. The national park/monument has some well maintained trails that provide some nice views of the river and over 100 ancient effigy mounds

the brewpub is new and very sterile. there are only 5 beers on tap - weizen, marzen, helles, and a couple other standards. there are a few tv's and a mostly modern wooden interior

serving sizes range from 12oz to 23oz and there is a reasonably priced sampler. glassware was all pretty cool as well.

food appeared to be pretty standard brewpub fare - we tried the onion rings which were actually really impressive - soft beer batter, covered in parmesan with a nice dipping sauce

i had the weizen which was above average and refreshing.

if in the area hiking or whatever, check it out. the town is pretty quaint and this is likely your best bet for a beer
