I finally stopped at Dark Horse late Saturday afternoon. It's easy to miss this from the road. (I saw it, but a little too late to turn)

This is one of the most laid-back brewpubs, I have ever visited. There are a few posters and other varied pieces hanging on the wall, but the most notable wall adornments are the mugs. Hundreds of clay mugs line the walls and cieling. The bar has a nice masonary top. It looks like this place does very well with the locals, but was welcoming to travelers as well.

The food menu consisted of pizza, calzones, subs, and a few snack items. My brother and I split a pumpkin seed pesto pizza. It hit the spot as tasty bar food.

There were seven or eight beers on tap, including Crooked Tree IPA, Double Crooked Tree, Boffo Brown, black beer and more. I had a pint of Crooked Tree and one of the black. Both of my choices were delicious.

This is a good place to spend a few hours drinking good beer. I'm sure this won't be my only visit.

Lacking in corporate sterility, this brewery is what you love about DIY beer making. Stage featuring roots music and beer that hasn't acquiesced to offering only "safe" beer. Will raise the bar for every other tasting room you ever settle into.

Members of the mug club for years, several superb brews. Weakness clearly has been food. Need bigger better kitchen (almost done we hear) . Owners are sincere long term brewers not late players to the game. Enjoy!

Place was a nice and cozy little hometown brewery. Only had a few on tap today but picked up some Ghastly pale stout and some Imperial red stout at a release today!! Sandwich's were great and the tour was eventful and a got to try some BBA Plead the Fifth and Sarsprilla 666!! Can't complain about anything would go back again and again. Enjoyed the hospitality hands down
