We are a craft beer store. We offer a great selection of both domestic and international beers. We have twelve rotating taps that you can enjoy in the store or fill a growler to take home. Snack on fine cheese, cured meats or chocolate while you sip on your beer of choice. Dog friendly but 21 and over, please.

this place is downtown and actively supports local groups in fundraising. Serves a wide variety of beers. Not very big so it can get crowded and noisy on occasions. often has music on these fundraising occasions.
