A good local place. The beer is average at best, nothing great here that I've had yet. The vibe is very cool and laid back. Nice staff. The location is really the best part.

I frequent this place often. The staff and owners are always super friendly. Whether It's totally packed, or it's just me and the bartender - they're always on their game. Cozy small space with occasional live music and outdoor seating. Decent selection of beers that continuously changes. I love the small space - someone else said it's like being at a friend's house and I concur. Stop by and grab a few samples, then take home a growler or two!

Unassuming little space, very low energy and I am good with that.
It feels like visiting a friend who happens to brew alot of beer in his kitchen. A small bar with a couple of stools front the brewhouse and seats for another 10 or so are just inside the entrance. You pass a smallish patio on the way in so there is more room outside. No food, bring your own. No tv, bring your own(?).
Dave Matthews, Jackson Brown, and Bruce Hornsby, et al on the speakerbox help to set the tone.
Currently 5 beers on tap. I liked both I tried.

A smaller brewery that is less than a year old. A very cool quaint little vibe inside and a nice patio. Unfortunately they only have 4 taps going. The beer is fine but not at all spectacular and I thought the prices were a bit unwarranted. I liked the place and their non-alcoholic ginger and fruit soda was really good. I hope they turn up the quality and the quantity and I am hopeful they continue to improve.

Smaller place tucked of the main st. Family owned newer bar. Some selection, some tasty. Hoping for more visits to see what they have done lately. Brewer is nice.

A fairly small space, with a hand full of taps. Friendly staff. Very limited seating. A new brewery, but the beers have been quite good from the start
