Did a great job of turning an old building into a Smalltown Brewery. Nice little bar set up with 8 Draft Taps flowing. Plenty of seating for a bigger party. Menu is small with an assortment of cheeses and Paninis. Owners are right there to discuss the different Brews.

Visited during the official opening weekend. Located in the old post office in Red Lion. High ceilings and windows, very open and bright. No TVs. Brewery is visible behind a glass partition to one side of the bar. Bar seats about 12-15 people, with tables for another 50 or so. Place was pretty full, service was fast and friendly. The 2 co-owners, co-brewers were pouring beer and answering questions. Very friendly, welcoming atmosphere from both employees and other patrons. Limited food menu with Cheese plate, couple of other apps, one homemade soup, 3 Panini's and 3 local made desserts. Didn't try the food or really see any to comment on it. Prices were very reasonable. Six beers on tap, brewer's said they want to have 8 on tap, 4 regular and 4 seasonal/one-offs. $5 for all beers, the 2 Saisons came in 13 oz goblets, everything else was 16oz. The Porter, Dunkleweizen and Cream Ale were all true to style and solid. The Cream Ale was quite good, clean and crisp with a surprising hop bite. The IPA was well done with a nice hop profile and just enough malt to prop everything up, nothing spectacular but growler worthy. The Ginger Saison was very good, just enough ginger flavor that complemented rather than wrestled with the Belgian Yeast. The Holiday Saison was nicely spiced with Honey, Whole Clove, Sweet Orange Peel and Fresh Ginger Root but was not overly done. Brewers discussed a number of new beers to be hitting the lineup and this initial offering was good enough for me to go back.
