First the place is a little tricky to find, tucked away in an old industrial complex. You actually pass another small brewery/cidery located in the same building (that threw me off a little) but keep going another hundred feet and you'll see Stubborn Beauty. I...More

Stopped by Stubborn Beauty while in the area. This is my second visit here. I enjoyed it more this trip than my first visit. I will stop here again when in the area.

This is a great little brewery! They had a variety of craft beers on tap. There are often food trucks outside as well. Worth checking out!

You really feel like a member of a secret club when you're here. And the beer is truly a cut above. Try a flight. Wear layers: it's hot and sweaty by the back wall and chilly by the huge beautiful windows. But you won't notice...More
