With a casual bar to order from and friendly servers, we fell into this brewery by accident. Simple, casual bar food served quickly.

This brewery/ smokehouse is really good. Beer selection is really HUGE and there is something for everyone. The food is really good too. Portions are HUGE and price is very fair.

Food- Usually good food. Beer- Hit or miss with their Underbrown being delicious. Our Experience- Long story short, one of the owners over-reacted to my father's course demeanor and F-Bombed us repeatedly and threw us out. All over a disagreement over if the $10 sliders...More
