This is a cool surfer themed brewery to visit. You could spend hours just looking at the wall of antique beer cans that line the wall. I ordered a flight of beers and the flight was in the shape of a surf board which I...More

We got here early and there were people waiting for it to open. It's pretty popular. It has a few tables and a bar to sit. There are 20 beers on tap. The beers were decent.

Great beer and nice people, we dressed up and were scared by the great costumes worn by all. There were scary items to freak you out all over. They are dog friendly too!

Nice selection across the board and good service. The double IPA and Vanilla stout were favorites. Nice atmosphere. Close to many other places to eat and drink.
