I'm always on the look out for great micro pubs that offer selections that I might not easily find. While this place is easy to find (just off the downtown square), parking is a little tricky. I get parked a few blocks away and enter...More

Aptly named place with lots and lots of draft beers, ales and ciders all with their tap handles against the wall facing the patrons at the bar. Chose an "Oh Yester" Cider that came in a snifter for $ 7.75. Had a bitter after taste...More
