Always a good time with a great selection of beers. There is also entertainment on occasion, and a monthly (I think it’s monthly) book club.

Great beer, great prices, friendly/knowledgeable staff. Good ambience but it can get a bit loud if it's crowded, but overall a good stop for those who enjoy craft beers.

Stopped by here after a trip to the Buddy Holly crash site. Beers were very good. They also offer 1/2 pints so you can taste a good variety of beers. Staff very friendly and pointed out a few of the local attractions.
