A strip mall place . No table service so it is hard to rate service. Someone was at the order bar when we ordered and there was no wait. It was a Sunday evening so the only people there were sitting at the bar and are probably regulars. Same goes with the vibe. No food, popcorn at a price.

Stopes by at 6 on a Saturday. It is in a strip mall, but don't let that scare you off. Inside is nice light wood walls, black ceiling. Feels welcoming withou being dark. Small 9 person bar, but plenty of tables and booths as well. 10 of their own on tap plus 2 ciders. Pricing is 5/6/7 for 12/16/20 of most items. Service was prompt and pleasant. Nice variety in the 10 offerings as well. No food on site. I really like this place and will return

This was stop #3 on a pub crawl on this day. The brewery is located in a strip mall setting on the main street that goes through this town. At mid-afternoon the place was not busy so we sat at the bar and were able to chat with the owner/brewer and his wife along with the other customers. The vibe in the bar area is nice, especially enhanced with the copper bar top. Tables and chairs fill the rest of the space with a probable capacity around 100 people. Beer ordering is done at one end of the bar.

Since we had already had beers at two other places that day, we decided to slow the quantity pace a bit and only ordered 5 beers in sampler-sized glasses (12 beers were available). This brewery has been open for only 2-3 months, but they have their recipes pretty well dialed in to the proper taste characteristics for their style. All of the beers were also in excess of style guidelines so that we gave a B score to each of them. One beer that was called Big French Girl was a strong saison, and it was a nice experience to find a beer like this.

There is no food served here, but they have bags of chips, pretzels, and self-serve fresh-popped popcorn available as snacks. Wine and cider are also available along with crafted soft drinks. Growlers are available for carry-out beers. The beers are very good, thus this place is worthy of another visit if we are in the area again.
