Although I don't drink I had a great time here with family and friends. They have darts, board games and sports on the TV. Dogs allowed but no beer unless of age.

We're also huge fans of those activities during the fall too :) Furry children always welcomed to share a cold one with us!

This is a really nice (but basic) bar attached to the brewery. They have a good selection of their own beers on tap, they are dog friendly and you can order food from local fast food places to eat. They even do tours of the...More
