Man. What a cool place. Great atmosphere. Plenty of beer choices. Bacon wrapped pretzel bites,in maple syrup, are an absolute must have. Bourbon room is cool also.

The beer is the main attraction and it is a great micro brewery. But the food menu is unique and the Asian ribs were as meaty and no fat as I’ve had.

We went as a large group and were able to experience the speakeasy portion. It was neat and had lots of old school video games and systems. 1980's version of Tetris on Nintendo was a nostalgic treat. I have to say we thoroughly enjoyed Civil...More
