3.6/5  rDev -1.1%

I stopped in on my way to my grandfather's place for a growler fill. It is the second visit for me. The place couldn't be easier to find. It sits right off I-75. It looks like a big hunting lodge that should be sitting out west in the mountains. The ceilings are huge and it has the lodge feel inside as well. The bar wasn't comfortable because there were animals carved into the bar that protruded up. My brother had a duck right in his face.

I asked the bartender for a sampler. He set out the three beers that they had on tap, an amber, a raspberry wheat, and a light lager. I noticed that a stout and an ipa were listed on the board and inquired. The bartender told me that they were out and that they hadn't had a brewer in a while, but the liquor guy (they distill too) was taking over brewing.

I had an appetizer. The food is pretty good. I would recommend this place more as a steakhouse than as a brewpub. I hope they get a full time brewer and bring the beer up to par with the food. I did not sample the spirits, so they may be worth a try.

Absolutely beautiful on the inside, but poor food service and management has slowed it down. Holds one of my all time favorite beers Citron though on tap!
