We had a great time with our 2 in diapers, brother and mom. Our group of 6 had plenty of room upstairs with a nice view. Relaxed time, kids menu, great brews. Staff was super nice. Couldn’t be happier

I need a good beer. Walked into a new start but their beer was very good. Delicious indeed. The young fella in back introduced us to some interesting unique brews and we all left with a smile on our faces.
