This was a cool little place. Very small. Nice and clean though. I had a Russian imperial stout, it was tasty, but nothing amazing. Prices are good and it's filled with locals. I wouldn't travel an hour to get here, but I would stop by if I was in the neighborhood.

Fun place, went on a Sunday afternoon around 3 or 4, wasn't too packed though the AC must have been broken because it was so humid in that taproom. Decent selection, IPA was fresh and the food truck selection was nice. Overall a decent stop I would recommend to anyone (and right around the corner from toolbox, might as well hit both if you're down here!)

They only have their beer for selection and their best beers are their milk stouts. They also have floats
