“A very nice brewery! I go here nearly every Sunday afternoon. Bring your own food and pick from 15 different types of beer to accompany. Board games are available and I think it's the only place on far north coast that has a shuffle board table!”

“This is a local gem, and not only because the local micro brews are unforgettably delicious but because the food and atmosphere are great. This place is great for families but may require a reservation for large groups. They have famous hot wings, loaded nachos, daily soups, burgers made with local grass-fed beef, and lots of vegetarian/vegan options”
